I was very sorry to hear of Mrs Scherer’s passing. She was our next door neighbor all the years my family lived on Belvedere Rd. She was kind and good natured with an infectious laugh. God blessed our entire family by giving her and her family to us as neighbors! She made our world a better place!

We had such good times with Mae. My kids loved seeing her when she visited with my mother and Aunt Peg. I will Always remember her amazing pumpkin cookies. The obituary picture is the perfect one to explain Mae. She was fun.
