Wilbert was also preceded in death by two sons Eugene and Joe Scheer and a sister Ruth A. Scheer.
Mr Scheer was a man like so many who stood up to life's challenges. When his country needed him he stood up proudly and served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, he took on the challenges of his family the best way he knew how, by farming the family farm, being born and living his entire life of 91 years there. He served his church in many ways. So much so that it was said of Wilbert," if the church lights were on he was there".
Mr. Scheer's visitation will be Monday January 2, from 4-8 P.M. at the Toedtmann & Grosse Funeral Home, New Haven, MO. American Legion service will be at 7:30 P.M. Funeral services will be held Tuesday January 3, at 11:00 A.M. at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church, New Haven, MO. Burial will follow at the Bethlehem Lutheran Cemetery.
