Betty Ann Schaefer, 83, of Houston, passed away on April 2, 2021. She was born in Sweet Home, Texas on July 19, 1937 to Frank and Mary Pekar. Betty was the youngest of 11 siblings and loved growing up in the country. Having such a large family, she always had the most interesting stories to tell. She married Norbert in 1957 and they were able to celebrate 62 wonderful years together.

Betty was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as Grandma. She had a vivacious personality and always made people around her laugh. She made friends everywhere she went, many of them were just like family to her. Betty was also a devout Catholic who believed in the power of prayer. She loved to cook, kept an immaculate house, was highly skilled with a sewing machine, and enjoyed her weekly outings to the local bowling alley. A farm girl at heart, gardening was also a passion. Most of all she loved her family and instilled in her sons strong values that have served them well. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts. She is a true testament to a life well lived.

Leaving behind to cherish her memory are her sons Gary Schaefer (Gina), Daren Schaefer (Jodie) and many loving Grandchildren Joshua Schaefer (Veronica), Brendan Schaefer, Joseph Schaefer, Jared Threlkeld (Tonya), Lauren Canales (Andy), Devin Schaefer, and Will Schaefer.
