It was my pleasure to take care of you for the last three years. I will miss you. I won’t forget that you always won when we played Connect Four but maybe some day I will get the chance to beat you. Love You Rest In Peace.

We all have many memories of Scharee, but before she became wife, Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma, Aunt and friend she was daughter and sister.
I would like to share some memories she had written a while back.
She was very sheltered because she was the youngest.
She remembered that when she was 3 years old she almost died from a kidney infection, they had a big overstuffed chair they put by the stove and that was her bed. She was in a coma and very sick.
She remembered that they used to listen to the radio, pop popcorn and made taffy in the Winter time. She sat by the radio and crocheted.
They played Donkey, it was a game played with cards and clothes pins and at the end they had to run around the table and yell YeeHaw, she tried to teach her kids to play it but they wouldn't yell YeeHaw.
She remembered her Grandpa was a minister, he didn't believe in playing cards, dancing or anything fun. He lived with them for a time.
She remembered their were clothes hung all over the house because her Mom took in wash.
She remembered taking trips with her parents to Yellowstone, Michigan Dunes and Niagara Falls.
She remembered that her Mom kept chickens and a rooster jumped on her leg and scratched her and she told her Mom she was never going to feed those old chickens anymore.
She remembered she stayed with her sister Bettie when she was pregnant and when she went into labor she was so scared for Bettie, she was so happy when it was over and she had the baby.
And then she met Bill Schwalm and then came Bill, Mick, Sue, Sandy and Shelly and she started on the adventure of her life.
She concluded her memories by saying "I had a good life growing up at home. I've always been happy to be from a big family. I still enjoy the family get together s"
So now they are all together having one big family reunion.
They are all whole and healthy and happy
Now remember you Wynkoop "kids" behave and no more fighting.
RIP Until we meet again

I will miss you so much, grandma. I will always treasure our talks on the phone, and you telling me every two days that I should be president. You are my best friend and I know you'll always be with me.

Love, Hugs and Kisses

Where do we begin to tell you how much you have meant to us over all these years? Maybe back in my High School years when you first became my second Mom? Or maybe after I married Randy and you made him one of the family too. So many memories .... Graduation, Sandy and my trip to Fla. after. Catching my bf at your house late at night when you came home early from a trip to Fla. too! We were sitting on the couch thank goodness! Or maybe when Sandy would come to visit and we would sit around the kitchen table talking and laughing ourselves silly. And of course, you sneaking Randy money for helping you around the house and garden, not every time but YEP I KNEW ABOUT IT!!! We loved very much "Mom Schwalm" . Fly angel fly

Aunt Scharee you will be truly missed. My children and I had a blast when my mom (Diane) took us to Ft. Wayne. I will never forget the great memories we shared.
