Obituary

Memorial services for Janet Scherer age 80 of West Point, NE will be on Thursday, July 15, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. at the Minnick Funeral Home in West Point, NE with Pastor Priscilla Hukki officiating. Interment will be in the Pilger Cemetery at a later date. Visitation will be held on Wednesday from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Minnick Funeral Home in West Point. The family suggests that memorials be directed to St. Francis Hospice of West Point in Janet’s name.

Janet Elaine Scherer was born on December 13, 1940 in Lincoln, NE to Allen and Viola (Shoemaker) Tiedtke. Janet attended Pilger Public Schools and graduated from Pilger High School in 1958, as the class Valedictorian.

On February 1, 1959, she was united in marriage to Terry Scherer at the Pilger United Methodist Church in Pilger, NE. The couple farmed south of Pilger until 1964, when they moved to Illinois and lived in the communities of Galesburg and Knoxville. In 1968, they returned to Nebraska settling in West Point. The family moved to Norfolk in 1969 and returned to West Point in 1970.

Janet began working for Dr. Showers Dental Office before working as the bookkeeper for Dr. Sucha and Dr. Tibbles. She later split her time between Home Health and the Dinklage Medical Clinic before retiring.

Janet loved to crochet, cook and bake. At Christmas time her kolaches and crocheted snowflakes were a hit. Janet’s artistic side was evident in all the different forms of crafts that she mastered.
