Obituary

Janice “Jan” Louise Scherer, 71, of Bryans Road, MD died on June 16, 2021.  Jan passed away due to dementia and wanting to be with her mom, dad and late husband.

Born on November 12, 1949, in Philadelphia, PA, she was the daughter of the late Arthur and Joy Shoop.  Jan worked 27 years as a civilian for the US Government.

Jan would assist others if she were able.  Jan was our loving Mom, Grandma and Great-Grandma.  Her enjoyments were crafts, watching old movies on TCM; typing yearly Christmas letters to send out, times spent with family, traveling with her husband to places like Iceland, Germany, Italy and celebrating holidays – especially Christmas.
