TALEA SCHEFFLER Mrs. Talea Scheffler, 87, died peacefully at her home on Monday, November 4, 2013, after a lengthy illness. She is survived by Gisela Brons, her brother Edzard's widow, her nephews Edzard Brons and Sicco Brons, their families and other numerous relatives throughout Germany. Talea was born on June 27, 1926, in Ihlpohl/Bremen Germany. She spent her childhood and youth at her father's tree nursery and studied to become a Professional Housekeeper. After the terrible World War II and the early death of her mother, she took care of and supported her father for many years until she moved to the United States in 1961 where she took a position as Housekeeper to a family in San Francisco. On April 15, 1962, she married Ernst Christoph Scheffler in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Her husband was a professional landscape architect from Berlin and continued his work in Denver. Together they travelled to and worked in many U.S. National Parks, which included Yellowstone. In 1973, Talea and Christoph retired to Santa Fe, built their new house and spent many wonderful years in their beloved southwest landscape deeply admiring the culture and native inhabitants of New Mexico. Mrs. Scheffler was cremated and a memorial service with family and friends will be held at a later date in Emden Germany.
