Our lovely Marje sadly passed away all too soon on July 17, 2014, after a long journey with cancer. She was a quiet, gentle, happy person dedicated to her son and family, especially to her grandchildren Jenna and Matthias – a devoted and caring “Mimi.”

Marje was born in Dexter on March 31, 1951, to Margaret “Maggie” Schrafel of Austin and the late Donovan Scheer. She attended school at Dexter and Elkton and two years at Winona State University. She was an A student. She was married, living and working for some time in the Lakeville/Farmington area. She later moved to Dexter and for many years worked in the Austin/Dexter area while she lovingly raised her son Nick.

She was a hard worker, avid reader, a fount of knowledge and family history and a fantastic homemaker. We will miss her baking and will all cherish the beautiful quilts she sewed for us.

Marje is survived by her son Nick; grandchildren Jenna and Matthias; mother Maggie; brothers and sisters Allan and Lory, Jordan, Janiese and Tim, Jan, Donna; and many nieces and nephews.

We will hold you in our hearts always.

A Memorial Service will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, July 21, in the Dexter United Methodist Church, Dexter, Minn. Interment will be at Cedar City Cemetery, Austin, Minn.
