Shafer dies, leaves legacy of scholarship, tolerance

Published: Friday, March 14, 2014

Dr. Ingrid Shafer, professor emerita of philosophy and religion at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, died March 5 in her son’s home, surrounded by family after a short illness. She was 74. USAO President John Feaver described Shafer as “a close personal friend.” “Ingrid was really married to this college -- by her love for the institution and its mission and for what she did here,” Feaver said. “I’m sorry in her passing but I don’t feel sorry for her. She lived an extraordinarily full and productive life, dedicating herself to teaching and scholarship.” A memorial service in Shafer’s honor is scheduled for 3 p.m. on September 6 in the Alumni Chapel. A special scholarship fund has been established in her name through the USAO Foundation.
