Sharon R. Scheid, 69, passed away peacefully at her daughter’s home Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, surrounded by her loving family, after a brave battle with cancer.
She was born March 26, 1948, the daughter of the late Lester and Merle (Christensen) Fischer. On April 2, 1990, she married Mathis “Bill” Scheid. He preceded her in death after 9 amazing years together.
Sharon’s love for her children and grandchildren inspired her to overcome her illness for an additional four years. Her legacy of kindred spirit and her passion for sewing, embroidering, baking, knitting, crocheting, card-making and many other crafts will live on through them.
She was an avid bowler with the Waupaca Lady’s League; bowling several perfect 300 games. Family and friends loved when she would show up with her delicious apple pie, famous pumpkin bars, and chocolate zucchini cake. She worked at the Waupaca County Post for many years until her retirement, part-time at Sew N Sew and was the secretary at St. John’s Lutheran Church of Weyauwega for many years. She sold her hand-made items at craft fairs and in her business of Needles in a Haystack. She was a current member of Fellowship Baptist Church, Kronenwetter. Sharon was an inspiration to all who knew her; always having a smile on her face and a joke on her lips.
Survivors include her two daughters, Leslie (Mike) Stamborski, New London, and Renee (Brent) Moodie, Mosinee; seven grandchildren, Caleb Lester, Hannah Elizabeth, Andrew William, Jadon Wallace, Stephen Walter, Ethan James, and Esther Joyce; a sister, Ruth (Dave) Ohms, Birchwood; a nephew, Christopher Ohms, Barnum, MN; two nieces, Julianne (Corey) Kalbaugh, Durham, NC, and Allison Ohms, Duluth, MN; and father of her two daughters, James Hesketh.
