Juliette Scherer


Juliette E. Scherer (nee Driscoll), 95, of West Bend, passed away on Thursday, April 5, 2018, at Cedar Home Health and Rehab.

She was born on Nov. 19, 1922, in Cedarburg,  the daughter of the late William and Mary Driscoll (nee Nolan).

She married the love of her life, Leroy Scherer, on June 16, 1945, in Milwaukee.  

Juliette was a member of the Landt-Thiel American Legion Auxiliary in Saukville for more than 50 years and was a charter member of the Saukville Historical Society. She was an avid gardener and canner; she grew the best pumpkins in Ozaukee County for many years. Most of all, she liked spending time with her family.

Those Juliette leaves behind to cherish her memory include her children Rose (Jerry) Steffen of Malone, Nola (Cal) Luft of West Bend and Bob Scherer of New Holstein; grandchildren Amy Stewart, Rebecca Hobbs, Anne Blaedow, Sara Depies, Scott Mickelsen, Christopher Mickelsen, Jason Mickelsen, Jade See and Robert Scherer; 11 great-grandchildren; son-in-law Jim Meeuwsen; nieces; nephews; other relatives; and friends.

In addition to her parents, Juliette was preceded in death by her husband Leroy, son Bill Scherer, daughter Jane Meeuwsen, great-granddaughter Amanda Ducsay and siblings Ambrose Driscoll and Beatrice Neigelsen Weinkauf.

A funeral service in remembrance of Juliette will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 14, 2018, at Immanuel United Church of Christ, 501 Walnut St., West Bend.

Juliette’s family will greet relatives and friends at the church from 11 a.m. until the service.

The Landt-Thiel American Legion Auxiliary of Saukville will do a walk through ceremony at 12:30 p.m.

Burial will take place at St. Finbar Cemetery in the Town of Saukville at a later date.

Since Juliette’s favorite color was red, please honor her by wearing something red to the funeral.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated to the Saukville Historical Society or the Landt-Thiel American Legion Auxiliary in Saukville.

Juliette’s family would like to thank the Cedar Home staff and Cedar Hospice for their compassionate care and support.

Myrhum-Patten Funeral and Cremation Service, West Bend, is handling the arrangements.
