Margaret Virginia Scheer
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado
Margaret Virginia Scheer passed away April 2, 2009, at La Villa Grande Care Center in Grand Junction.
Margaret was born June 21, 1918, in Elizabeth, N.J.
She moved to Colorado Springs in 1956 with her husband, Walter Scheer Sr., and their young family. They relocated to Glenwood Springs in 1958, where she raised her children after Walter passed away in 1960. A loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, she was affectionately known as Peg.
Peg was employed at Chase Pharmacy and the Glenwood Industrial Bank for many years.
She was loving, caring and compassionate and always put her family first. A friend to all who knew her, she was always there to lend a helping hand. Peg was an active member of the community, a lifelong member of the First Presbyterian Church in Glenwood Springs, and a member of the local chapter of the PEG and the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. Her passions were cooking, baking, gardening, spending time with her family and going for drives in her beloved Western Colorado mountains.
In 1996 Peg moved to Rifle, near her son Walt’s family. There she volunteered in a school-sponsored children’s reading program for non-English-speaking students. She moved to Battlement Mesa in 2004, to reside at Mesa Vista Assisted Living. She continued to attend church in Glenwood Springs for several years accompanied by her friends.
She lived a full life and will be greatly missed by her family and friends and will continue to live on in each of their lives.
She is survived by sons, Walt (Yvone) Scheer of Grand Junction, Al (Deb) Scheer of Centennial; daughter Karen (Kim) Huffman of Heber, Utah; grandchildren Brian Scheer, Scott Scheer, Hannah Scheer, Mollie Scheer, Hunter Huffman and Tanner Huffman; and great-grandchildren Dawson Scheer, Peytan Scheer, Trystan Scheer and Riley Scheer; sister Helen Dulk of New Jersey; nephew Philip Dulk of New Jersey; and niece Phyllis Gibbs of Ohio.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 2, at the First Presbyterian Church of Glenwood Springs.
