Died: April 16, 2018; in Batavia, IL

Joan Marie Scherer, of Batavia, IL, passed away Monday, April 16, 2018, at her home surrounded by her loving family.

Born May 6, 1943, in Chicago, Joan was the daughter of Theodore and Evelyn (nee Anderson) Renstrom. She grew up and graduated from York Community High School in Elmhurst, IL. Joan was united in marriage to Donn Scherer on June 12, 1965, at Grace Lutheran Church in Villa Park, IL.

Joan graduated from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, with a degree in business and marketing. She was chapter president of her sorority, Chi Omega, and later served as an advisor to the sorority's University of Illinois chapter while living in Urbana. Joan was employed as a cosmetics buyer for Osco and retired to raise her family.

Joan's first passion and greatest enjoyment came from raising her three sons. She instilled in them an appreciation for education, life and faith. She encouraged music and sports as well as a sense of adventure and a love of the outdoors.

Joan's second love was music. An accomplished organist and pianist, Joan shared her musical talents with the congregation of Bethany Lutheran Church for many years.

Joan and her loving husband, Donn, shared an excitement for travel and especially enjoyed time at their Naples, FL, winter residence.

Joan is survived by her husband, Donn; three sons, Steve (Lori) Scherer, Mark (Cindy) Scherer and Michael Scherer; seven grandchildren, Morgan and Cody Davis, and Megan, Emily, Eric, Ella and Cade Scherer; a brother, Roger (Carole) Renstrom; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

Visitation was held from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Friday, April 20, at Moss Family Funeral Home, 209 S. Batavia Ave., Batavia. A funeral service took place at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, April 21, at Bethany Lutheran Church, 8 S. Lincoln St., Batavia. She will lie in state from 10:00 a.m. until the time of the service at the church. Interment will follow the funeral service in West Batavia Cemetery, 900 S. Batavia Ave., Batavia.
