ROSE F. SCHEER, age 96, passed away on 10/23/2021 at home surrounded by her family. Rose was born on July 28, 1925. She was the wife of the late Kenneth P. Scheer, the love of her life. Rose was predeceased by her son, Kurt Scheer. She is survived by her four children; Ken Scheer and his wife Betsy, Kris Scheer, Kathy Corcoran and her husband Jerry, and Karrie Phillips and her husband Bernie. Rose is also survived by her grandchildren; Matthew Scheer and his wife Morgan, Zachary Scheer, Kathryn Scheer, Conor and Cole Phillips and Madison and Ryan Corcoran.
Rose was a beloved teacher's aide at Griswold School for many years and would frequently be stopped in public by adults who fondly remembered her. Rose enjoyed oil painting, playing tennis, baking delicious apple pies and cookies for her family and friends, and watching UCONN Women’s basketball. She also enjoyed going out each morning for coffee with her friends.
One of Rose’s greatest pleasures was spending time with her grandchildren and playing her favorite game, RummiKub.
The family extends their deepest gratitude to Dr. Catherine Holmes for her devotion to Rose. We also extend our deepest love and appreciation to Veralyn Hayes for the wonderful care that she gave to Rose for the past two years. We are forever grateful.
