Rita H. Schairer passed away 12/9/2021, at the age of 94.  What an extraordinary woman our mother (Mutti) was!  She was born Rita Helene Bauer, at 2 1/2 lbs. in Stettin, Germany (now Poland) in 1927 to Gotthold and Olga Bauer (and brother, Horst).

She was in Germany during WWII, and at one time found herself and her mother walking from Northeast to Southwest Germany, while hiding from Russian soldiers.  She was married twice, and immigrated to the United States in 1963.  She made her life in Eagleville, PA. and later in Scottsdale, AZ.

She was a wonderful mother and friend to all of her daughters.  She loved her family very much.

She is preceded in death by her husband, William, her parents and brother, as well as her granddaughter, Michelle.

Mutti leaves behind her 3 daughters, Sybille Simcox (husband Lee), Sabina Bartlow  (husband Dennis) and Jacqueline Dennis (husband Bruce) and their families, including 5 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.

She is so loved and will be missed so very much!
