Malta-Edith Margaret Scheele 80, went to be with her Lord and Savior on December 21st 2019 at her home with her family at her side.
Funeral service for Edith will be held on Thursday, December 26, 2019 at Saco Lutheran Church at 1:00 P.M.
Edy was born to the proud parents, Leo and Geneva Griffin, on June 22nd 1939 in Montevideo Minnesota. She attended many different schools and shared stories of different pranks she learned along the way. Edy met the love of her life and joined hands with Donald Dale Scheele on February 24th 1960 in Glasgow Montana, where she worked for her mother who, at the time, owned and operated the local truck stop. They had two daughters and two sons and went from Glasgow to Wolf Point and finally ended up on the Scheele farm north of Saco. After the farm life they moved to town where she never slowed down, taking on the Vita Rich milk business, sewing jobs, upholstery, both home and auto, and stayed with the post office for many years. Edy took pride in everything she did, including her hobbies which were quilting, crocheting, stamping, woodworking, painting, ceramics and many others as she was a very creative and talented lady. She was an active member at the Saco Lutheran Church as a Sunday school teacher, member of the ALCW, the quilting team and numerous Bible studies as it was her desire to serve the Lord wherever needed. Her love for her family and friends was unconditional and nobody was a stranger in her eyes, she would sit at the kitchen table with her coffee and her morning devotional waiting for those who knew the coffee was always on. Her heart of gold was evident in many of their homes as she shared many of her homemade gifts with family and friends. One of her favorite sayings was “honey a 100 years from now we will never know the difference”.
Survivors include her loving husband, Don Scheele, daughters Leora (Craig) Robinson, Cindy (Wade) Riden and Sons Greg Scheele, Rick (Mary Ann) Scheele, a total of 58 grandchildren along with numerous nieces and nephews.
