Obituary for Ellen Scherer (Coffey)
ELLEN JANE (COFFEY) SCHERER, 62, passed away Tuesday, March 28, 2017, after a long battle with Multiple Sclerosis. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.
She is survived by her husband, David B Scherer; brother, William S. (Margaret) Coffey and his sons, Scott and Thomas; daughter, Lauren E (Justin) Geeting; and grandchild, Judah A. Geeting with baby girl Geeting due this August.
She asked for nothing special in the end... no fanfare, no funeral, not even an obituary. "As someone who struggles with authority and rules much like Ellen herself, I'm doing something anyway. MS may have stripped her of her legs and her beauty, and eventually her mind but I ask those that knew her to remember young beautiful vibrant Ellen. Remember her gorgeous face and her tenacity for life, her energy and her big heart. I pray she has found peace and I will choose to only remember the good times. I Love you Mom."
