Violet V. Scharr

Violet V. Scharr, 82, died Sunday, May 18, 2014.

She is survived by her husband, Richard; their children, Kimberly Byrne, Valerie Keel and Lance Scharr; two grandchildren, Lauren Smith and Will Keel; and one great-granddaughter, Ilonika Scharr.

Her personal accomplishments were to successfully raise and support her family, and to travel and experience the world's rich history and cultures with her husband of 65 years.

Her community involvement included active participation for many years in the Sweet Adelines, in both the Verdugo Hills, Calif., Chapter and the Vienna-Falls Chapter, where she served two terms as chapter president. She also attained the proficiency level of sound judge.

Mrs. Scharr was also active for many years in the Caroline County Literacy Council, where she was president for two years, and where she successfully helped a number of adults learn to read.

We will all miss her loving and caring presence.

No memorial service is planned. She will be cremated and joined by her husband upon his death, so they may be together forever.

Donations in her name will be welcomed at Caroline Literacy Council, Box 778, Bowling Green, VA 22427, Attn: Vernessa Ware.
