Mr. Scheer was born on Dec. 28, 1927, on a farm near Madison, the son of Otto and Charlotte (Sauer) Scheer. He is survived by his wife, Jackie Scheer of St. Paul; three sons and daughters-in-law, Dave and Deb Scheer of Lincoln, Dan and Kelly Scheer and Tim and Amy Scheer, all of St. Paul; three sisters and two brothers-in-law, Lillian Barnes and Mickey and Wayne Walkenhorst, all of Lincoln, and Fawn and Carl Larsen of Chadron; and one brother and sister-in-law, Aaron and Darleen Scheer of Horseshoe Bend, Arkansas. He also leaves to cherish his memory, nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Edgar attended Madison County rural schools and graduated from Madison High School in 1945. He served in the United States Navy from Jan. 1946 until his honorable discharge in Nov. 1947. He returned to Madison County where he farmed and began working for the Soil Conservation Service. He was united in marriage to Jackie C. Kloppel on Jan. 18, 1953, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Madison. He transferred to the Soil Conservation Service in St. Paul in 1962 where he worked as a technician and laid out plans for many local farmers to ready their farms for irrigation through the Farwell Irrigation District. Edgar loved farming and was still actively farming until his death. He was never afraid to work, having held a job since he was 12 years old. He was a member of Christ Lutheran Church and Carl Mogensen American Legion Post 119 of St. Paul. He also was a longtime member of Farm Bureau, having held several offices and served on the St. Paul Co-Op Elevator Board. Edgar was always known for his quick wit and sense of humor. He loved going to the horse races and playing slot machines with his friends. He was also an avid fan and cheerleader for each of his grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents. Memorials are suggested to Christ Lutheran Church, Howard County Medical Center Foundation or to the family's choice.

We've known Ed and Jackie nearly all our married lives. We had the pleasure to meeting your children and grandchildren. We so looked forward to our summer visits at the lake when you were here to see Fawn and Carl. We felt like you were coming to see us, too! We cherished each and every gathering. Know that we are thinking of you during this very sad time. Our Deepest Sympathy,Mary and Curt

Our hearts are saddened by the loss Edgar. We will miss his humor and smile. I don't think we have ever meet anyone who was so happy with their life as Edgar was. He may be gone from our touch, but he will always be in our hearts. We love you all!
