Schaefer – Dori Lynn Schaefer, age 44, of Starke, Florida passed away on March 11, 2021 at Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Dori was born in Gainesville, Florida on March 5, 1977 to Adona Elaine Mullis Schaefer and the late Charles “Chuck” James Schaefer, Jr. She was a lifelong resident of Starke and graduated from Bradford High in 1998. Dori was full of life and never met a stranger. She loved everyone, being around family and friends, and blessing her food and her day with a special prayer and a joy filled “Amen” at the end. Dori attended Hope Baptist Church and Lifespring Church of Starke and worked with the ARC of Bradford in their Packaging Department, assembling screws, bolts, and beads. She loved the social interaction, going to Wal-Mart and Disney World. Dori enjoyed all types of music, dancing, watching Barney and The Price is Right, eating McDonald’s Cheeseburgers, and floating in the pool with an umbrella, Pepsi, snack, and occasionally a blanket for when it got too cold. She also enjoyed playing slot machines, but more than anything, Dori loved her family and enjoyed spending time with them. She was preceded in death by her father. Dori is survived by her loving mother, Adona Schaefer of Starke, FL; brother, John (Nancy) Cox, Jr. of Theressa, FL; sister, Karen (Tim) Norman of Jacksonville, FL; aunts, Dawn Klaffka and Vicki Mullis; uncle, Billy (Debbie) Mullis; nephew, John “B.J.” Cox, III; along with her special friend who went with her everywhere, Minnie Mouse. A Celebration of Dori’s Life will be held on Saturday, March 20, 2021 at 4:00 pm at Archie Tanner Memorial Chapel. The family will receive friends an hour prior to the service at the funeral home.
