Janet James Schaffer
Funeral services will be held Saturday, April 7, 2018, at 3:00 PM from the chapel of Chance & Hydrick Funeral Directors with Reverend Patrick Latta officiating.
Interment will follow in Hillcrest Memorial Park.
Mrs. Schaffer, daughter of Gerald F. “Joe” James (Jo Ann), of Augusta, and the late Mary Owens James, worked as a Direct Service Provider for Lynndale School for twelve years. She was a senior at Augusta University.
Janet enjoyed a strong relationship with her Higher Power (Jesus), inspiring many with her determined pursuit of personal growth and development. Her cheerful, positive disposition will be sorely missed by all who love her. She was truly “no respecter of persons,” extending love and acceptance to all.
In addition to her husband and her mother, she was preceded in death by her maternal grandmother, Mrs. Maude H. Owens.
In addition to her father, she is survived her sister, Judy James, of North Augusta, SC; by her brother, John James (Gob), of Shanghai, China; and her niece, Keira Evelyn James.
Pallbearers will be Tony Gaskins, Edward Hargis, Bryan Perdue, David James, Austin James, Stephen Lamb, and Tommy Brooks (Honorary).
The family will receive friends Friday, April 6, 2017, from 6:00 until 8:00 PM at the funeral home.
