In the 1960s and 70s Mrs. Scher was a religious school educator, including at the Hebrew Educational Alliance.
“She really enjoyed socializing,” said Mrs. Scher’s son, Gary. “Her later years were a continued dinner party. She got in conversations with strangers, and really enjoyed it.
“She had a really great memory, too, right up until she passed away.”
