Elsie L. Reed Obituary
ELSIE L. REED, 95 Elsie L. (Scatchard) Reed, 95, wife of the late Roy K. Reed, passed away on Thursday, May 8, 2014, in Seasons Hospice, Phoenixville. Born in Norristown, she was a daughter of the late Warren and Elsie (Shearer) Scatchard. She last resided at Spring Mill Assisted Living, Kimberton,PA. During World War II she worked in an airplane defense plant, then later as a legal secretary to the District Attorney in Norristown. She was instrumental in the decision to purchase and restore the old town hall of Royersford as a partner with her husband Roy, and children Ken and Elsa. She was a founder and supporter of Ken Reed Auction Company, which began by offering their auctions on the first floor of the town hall. Elsie, also known as Mother, Nanny, and Redhead, touched the hearts of all who knew and loved her. Her appreciation for life, her wicked sense of humor, her delight in teasing, her compassion, and her love of her family will linger with all who crossed her path. We are all truly blessed to have known her and received her influence in our lives. She believed in the Five G's that God is good, he guides us, guards us, and governs us. Mrs. Reed is survived by her children, Elsa L. Kaczmar, wife of the late Stanley Kaczmar, of Phoenixville; R. Kenneth Reed, Jr., husband of Deborah A. (Sempsrott) Reed; four grandchildren, Donald Kaczmar, Jessica King, Megan Mowrer, and Amelia Reed; and three great-grandchildren, Austin, Adrienne, and Thomas King.
