Deane Shaffer Obituary

Lifted on the wings of angels, Deane “Dee” Lynne (Williams) Shaffer was called to her heavenly home on Wednesday, March 20, 2024. She was born February 21, 1949 at Grafton City Hospital. She was the daughter of the late Foster J. Williams and Hilda (Criss) Williams.

Dee lived in Tunnelton, Camp Ground community, graduated from Tunnelton High School, and attended Camp Chapel Methodist Church. She was a graduate of Fairmont State College with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. She taught physical education, health and English at Tunnelton High School and South Preston for 33 years. Dee had no children but said all of her students were her children.

Dee was a member of the Tunnelton Historical Society and a volunteer at Hope House in Tunnelton. She was very giving and when someone would need help, she was there with a helping hand. Dee supported Samaritan’s Purse and Operation Christmas Child with many boxes every year.

Dee is survived by her husband of 51 years, Robert Clay Shaffer. She had no siblings, but considered Iris and Rosemary Shaffer her sisters, as well as many of her close girlfriends. Dee is also survived by her brother in law, Richard “Dick” Shaffer, and many nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.

Dee was preceded in death by her parents, and brother in law, Larry Shaffer.
