Sadly, I want to post the obituary for my mother, Lela Elizabeth (Oliver) Scheick. She was the eldest daughter of Hazel T. Littlefield. Hazel was the daughter of Chester Edwin Littlefield and Ina Lelona Johnson.
Lela E. (Oliver) Scheick-Post of Bedford, died peacefully on July 12, 2013. Devoted wife of Charles R. Post, deceased, daughter of Hazel T. (Littlefield) and Bill Oliver, deceased; sister of David Oliver of Bakersfield, CA and Beverly Hartwell of Cleveland, OH; mother of Deborah A. Upshaw of Bedford, MA, Barclay H. Scheick of East Hampstead, NH, and Brian K. Scheick of Micanopy, FL; mother-in-law to Michael Upshaw Sr., Janel Scheick and Elena Sachs. She is also survived by 8 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. An avid Bridge player, she enjoyed multiple cross country trips sight seeing America, board games, and spending time with grand and great grand children. Always generous with her time, she was quick to help family, friends and always welcomed new friends to supper. Lela was optimistic and excited about life to the end.
