Verna Shafer Celebration of Life

A toast in celebration, to the life of 

Verna Lee Shafer  (1929 to 2019)

A wonderful mother, grandmother, great grandmother, wife, sister, friend, artist, entrepreneur, business owner, avid gardener, community organizer, visionary and all around active, engaged and committed member of society. There was no dream too big or detail too small that Verna wouldn’t whole heartedly devote her undivided attention to it. She was a woman of action.
Verna was born in Chickasha Oklahoma to Henry “Hank” and Madelyn Yates their first of two daughters. The Yates family spent the first years of Verna’s young life enduring the hardships of the dust bowl and great depression. To escape dust related health issues the family moved to Phoenix, AZ. While in Phoenix Verna spent her developmental years building lifelong friendships and a passion for art.
A business opportunity prompted the Yate’s family move to Flagstaff, AZ where Verna spent her senior year of high school. It was there that Verna met the good looking shortstop on the baseball team with a “hotrod” ford car who quickly became the love of her life, Frank Allen Shafer. After graduating, and in a hurry to be together, Frank and Verna eloped and were married on Halloween day of 1947. The couple resided in Flagstaff for 55 active years until Frank’s health forced their move to the lower elevation of Beaver Creek. Verna would always call Flagstaff her home town. While in Flagstaff, Verna was active in the community working various jobs, following her children’s pursuits, volunteer work especially the art community. Verna owned and operated an interior design studio (The Finishing Touch) with her partner Debbie (Booth) for many years. Verna was both a student and teacher of art her entire life. During the final days of her life, as her health was failing, she found the desire and strength to give her final (hours long) art lesson to her great granddaughter Taylor Engle (19). Taylor was assisting in the care of her great grandmother during her final days. Upon the completion of the lesson Verna bequeathed to her great-granddaughter her well-worn easel, paint spattered smock and painting supplies hoping to share her passion with future generations.
Verna ShaferOnce relocated in Beaver Creek Verna and Frank felt blessed to live in a beautiful new house built by their (builder) sons Chris and Craig Shafer. Established in the Beaver Creek community Verna once again immersed herself in community service work, organizing people, planning, permitting, arranging funding and overseeing the construction of Sycamore Park and other community projects. She also started a garden club and stayed busy hosting many events in her beautifully decorated house and exquisitely landscaped yards. Verna was instrumental in raising money for many causes. As a reminder, to the family, of Verna’s endless optimism while going through her things we found many sketches and drawings of paintings and projects planned and not yet started. An example would be the partial pallet of concrete pavers, next to the backyard gate, yet to be laid. In her eighties Verna laid hundreds of (heavy) walkway pavers in her yards. It was not uncommon to find an elderly Verna in her back yard, pry bar in hand, rolling a large bolder to a new location simply because she thought it would “look better over there”.
Blessed with a large loving family and in the final weeks of her life Verna was able to stay in her beautiful home tended with loving care by her devoted daughter Vicki Womack (Jim) and son Chris Shafer who live nearby. She also enjoyed multigenerational family care provided by Taylor Engle (great-granddaughter) and her final hours were spent in the loving care of her hospice nurse granddaughter Elizabeth Ruby (Shafer) who gently assisted Verna to the gates of heaven.
Verna was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years Frank Shafer and her daughter in law Jennifer Welk (Chris). She is survived by daughter Vicki Womack (Jim) and sons Chris and Craig Shafer (Debi). Her large extended family includes 14 grandchildren, and a whopping 32 great grandchildren and counting.
Our family is deeply saddened by Verna’s passing, but we find solace in knowing she was well loved by many and is now reunited with her love Frank. Verna was one of a kind and will be remembered fondly by her family and those who knew her best.
There will be a memorial celebration of Verna’s life hosted at her house on February 2, 2019, in Beaver Creek at 3890 Sycamore Lane (turn off Montezuma on Meadow proceed to Sycamore) at 11:30 am. A short service with refreshments to follow.
Since there is limited parking in the vicinity of Frank and Verna’s home, shuttle transportation (Beaver Creek Transit) will be available from 10:45 AM on in Sycamore Park by the bridge.  At the park, there is also an opportunity to see the plaque dedicated to Verna and the Beaver Creek Garden Club.

Pancake Breakfast Thank You
       from BC Adult Center President, Phil Edwards
The Beaver Creek Adult Center Board Members were once again pleased at the turn out for our November Pancake Breakfast. It was special because in celebration of Veterans Day, we served all veterans free. We served 47 breakfasts. Also, in place of scrambled eggs, we served this time an egg casserole, it was very tasty and well accepted. This is also to thank Ron and Darla Melcher, and Cindy Upshaw who flipped pancakes, served, helped set up the tables and clean up after we were finished serving. It is also time to recognize your neighbors who are also board members who work hard and volunteer their time to present this breakfast and many other duties and activities: Dixie Edwards, Julie Uli, Judy Edwards and Diane Daniel.
The December breakfast was replaced by the Christmas Pot Luck. Our January Pancake Breakfast was postponed due to water damage after the severe freeze. However we’ve been back open for a couple of weeks and will renew the breakfast on a new day. So please come visit us for the Donation Pancake Breakfast this Monday, 1/28, from 8 AM to 10 AM.
Digital license plates now available as option for Arizona motorists
ADOT and DPS collaborate to ensure technology is safe
Technology buffs have a new Arizona license plate option available to them with the introduction of electronic digital plates.
For over a year, the Arizona Department of Transportation has tested this technology on a limited number of its fleet vehicles throughout the state to determine operational capabilities and endurance under multiple weather conditions.
ADOT also collaborated with the Arizona Department of Public Safety to ensure that the look of the plate and its messaging capabilities conform to legal requirements and law enforcement best practices.
The plates, called Rplate Digital License Plates, are LTE wireless connected devices similar to a tablet. The license plate number is constantly displayed, and the technology allows for added messages such as “invalid,” “stolen” and other notifications if needed.
While use of the Rplate is authorized by the ADOT Motor Vehicle Division and the Arizona Department of Public Safety, it’s not available at MVD or Authorized Third Party offices. Motorists who wish to buy the plate must do so through participating resellers, including vehicle dealerships and professional auto service providers or the plate manufacturer, Reviver Auto. The plate’s cost is determined by the manufacturer, and MVD does not receive any proceeds from sales.

Beaver Creek eNews 1/23/2019

Dear Neighbors
January began with an unusual snow storm creating a depth of 4 to 6 inches in most areas of Beaver Creek. Then came the coldest freeze that most of us have felt here, temperature reported to sink to 5 to 8 degrees. Our plumbers have probably already put down money for summer vacations! We’ve also had rain and wind and some beautiful days, too. And the last week of the month looks to be mostly sunny and mild.
This Saturday there is a double special event at the Beaver Creek Adult Center which spent some time closed due to a burst pipe. The main room of the Center is open for business as usual. (It may be awhile before the library room has new carpeting and is reopened.) Saturday AM the semiannual Dump the Drugs is from 10 AM to Noon. Then at 4 PM the annual Yavapai County District 2 Community meeting combined with the annual Beaver Creek Community Association are welcoming anyone who would like to attend. Some very useful information is provided at this meeting as well as some good food. The following Monday the Verde Valley Photography Society has a reception at the Beaver Creek Library. More information on these events is below.
At the December Governing Board Meeting for Beaver Creek School, newly elected board members Daniel Dubien and Brandi Bateman and reelected member Betty Hart were sworn in by Yavapai County Superintendent Tim Carter. Perry Krowne and Jackie Harshman continued in their terms. Retiring board members Karen DuFresne and Jo Burke were honored for their long term and fine service at this, their final meeting. At the January meeting Jackie Harshman was elected President and Brandi Bateman was elected Clerk.  Karin Ward and Katrina Sacco continue respectively as Superintendent and Principal of the school.

The Good Things Happening in the
Beaver Creek School District -December 2018
 Happy New Year 2019!
 
Our annual winter concert was a festive and enjoyable time. The kids worked hard to put on a great show. A special thank you to the teachers and paraprofessionals who helped them along the way, as well as the many family members and friends who supported them.
Mrs. Patricia Garitson has been working with Arizona State University to support research on healthy eating in schools, because of that partnership she has obtained a salad bar for the cafeteria.
All classes participated in a winter door decorating contest. This year each class decorated their classroom door with concepts from a winter themed storybook. This allowed each class to share some joy as well as integrating literacy standards into the activity.
The 7th and 8th grade classes held a bake sale to raise funds for their end of year trip. They baked together, and brought things from home to sell. It was very successful, and a great way to teach economics using a hands on approach.
The NAU Practicum students finished their semester in Preschool and Head Start. A new group of students will start the end of the month.
Verde Valley First Books Readers have come to preschool and Head start to read books and give the students books.
Thanks to the Beaver Creek Community, we were able to help 46 families and 110 children to have a brighter Christmas. A special thanks to Merryl Dones for coordinating with Beaver Creek Baptist Church, the Adult Center, the Beaver Creek Kiwanis, and Verde Valley Toys for Tots and Cottonwood Wal-Mart
Several Community Members coordinating with Eileen Conn have begun painting the bathrooms with positive messages.

Swift Water Rescue CCF&MD
On January 19 th  , at approximately 09:40 PM, Copper Canyon Fire and Medical were dispatched to a report of a person needing rescued from high waters on the Verde River.  Upon arrival, crews made voice contact with the stranded person standing on an island surrounded by rapid moving water.  Copper Canyon Fire and Medical deployed their  Swift Water Team which is made up of highly trained technical rescue members.   The stranded  patient was extricated safely from the river without issue and then evaluated by medical. There were no reported injuries to any of the responders, and the 1 patient refused further treatment after a medical evaluation.
CCFMD wants to remind everyone that attempting to drive or walk across flooding streams or rivers  is simply not worth the risk.  From the perspective of driving a vehicle, it can be difficult to judge the depth of water on the road.  It only takes inches for the tires to lose tractions and begin to float downstream.  Please drive safely and avoid tasking unnecessary risks.

Thank you to Firefighters 1/8/2019

From Sandy Dragman – Communication Coordinator for BCAC

During the first week of January, the Beaver Creek Adult Center suffered devastating flooding due to frozen and burst water pipes. The Center will be closed for a few weeks while the Board works with the insurance company on restorations. The BCAC Board would like to take this opportunity to thank the Firefighters from Station 82 of the Copper Canyon Fire District who went beyond their normal duties by digging a trench from the back door and pushing water out of the building. This action saved the building from even more damage and the Board feels truly blessed to have this type of support in our community.

 

 

eNews 12/30/2018 – Fires, Recycling Xmas Trees, 911 Calls

Dear Neighbors
 
Sometimes even when taking the best of precautions (which we don’t always do) emergencies and accidents happen.  Please call 911 for police/fire/medical emergencies.  If an ambulance ride is needed, there is no additional charge for the ride beyond what insurance covers and the ride is free if you have no insurance.  Sometimes medical assistance without a trip to the emergency room is needed, and our CCFMD EMTs are very helpful.
For formerly live tree disposal, please remove any decorations.  Then leave the tree at the designated area near the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station.  The Beaver Creek Kiwanis use the trees to assist the Red Rock Ranger District in a local erosion prevention project.
Still enjoying the holidays,

House Fire in Camp Verde
On December 29,  2018 at approximately 1:33 pm Copper Canyon Fire and Medical District was dispatched to a report of a roof on fire at 3250 Robin Ln. in Camp Verde. Upon arrival crews encountered a single family residence with smoke coming from one corner of the roof. Entry was made to the residence and the fire was quickly extinguished. The fire had spread in the small attic space and the extension of the fire was also extinguished. Crews from Copper Canyon Fire were on the scene while a crew from Verde  Valley Fire District was utilized to run any potential calls in the area. The cause of the fire is believed to be from a hot stove pipe and it was determined that there was  a possibility that the fire had been smoldering in the attic for some time before it was discovered. A family of 6 was displaced due to the residence not being livable so the American Red Cross was called to assist the family with any need.
