Jordan Scherer Obituary, Death – was born on September 26th, 1926 in Weatherford to parents Nell Carr Jordan and William Roy Jordan. In a little less than a month’s time, if she had lived, she would have celebrated her 90th birthday. Sadly, she did not. Her maternal ancestors were among the first people to settle in what would later become the state of Texas, back when it was still a territory. She had been a member of the Central Christian Church in Weatherford her whole life, making her the member with the longest continuous membership in the congregation.
Since the time she was a newborn and being cared for in the cradle chamber of the church, she had been going to the church on a regular basis. She was a woman who held her beliefs and ideals with unwavering tenacity. After graduating from Weatherford High School in 1944, she continued her education by enrolling at Weatherford College, Oklahoma State University, and Texas Christian University. In total, she earned three degrees during her time in higher school. After that, she continued her post-graduate education at Texas Christian University by taking more programs there.
In addition to that, she attended classes offered by organizations such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Newspaper Institute of America. Margery wed George Scherer on October 25, 1958, and he would go on to become the guy she would spend the rest of her life with. Throughout their nearly 51 years of marriage, which ended in 2009 after he passed away, they never wavered in their dedication to one another. Even in her latter years, her intelligence and her good memory did not diminish, which helped contribute to her reputation as a person who possessed a high level of intelligence. She devoured books like they were no tomorrow and was driven by an intense interest in learning. As a direct result of this, she was able to participate in discussions regarding a wide range of subjects as well as recent happenings in countries all over the world. She was a strong advocate for efforts to enhance literacy and was an active member of the Friends of the Library in Weatherford.
