Farewell to Family Legend, Ruth Scheer: Musical Matriarch and Children’s Author

Mother of ten, grandmother, great-grandmother, fellow musician, and author, this larger-than-life person has inspired so many people over the course of nearly a century.

Today, I’d like to honor the life and work of our own family legend, my Grandmother, Ruth Scheer.

Farewell to a Legend
A legend died today, I know
It’s hard to comprehend.
That after nearly a century
Your era came to end.

You taught me how to write in verse
When I was just a girl.
The words would form within my mind
Then on the page unfurl.

Your love of music, poetry,
And all creative things,
Developed deep within your soul,
Then flew on feathered wings…
