And from the mid-1970s through the 1980s, she worked part-time at retirement communities in Cinnaminson, Collingswood, Moorestown, and Mount Holly, her daughter said.
"With all of these," her daughter said, "she worked rehabilitating clients who had strokes. She would teach them how to feed and dress themselves."
For instance, she said, a right-handed person who had a stroke on the right side would "learn how to brush your teeth with your left hand."
She took enough overlapping assignments, her daughter said, that the saying at home was, "If this is Monday, Mom must be at -.
"She enjoyed working part-time so she had time to spend with the family."
A member of the American Association of University Women, she was a charter member in the 1980s of the Interfaith Caregivers of Burlington County.
A daughter of an Ohio preacher, she was active in the First United Methodist Church of Moorestown as a member of Bible study and prayer groups.
Besides her daughter, Mrs. Scheyhing is survived by her husband of 61 years, Robert; sons Bruce and Glenn; and a granddaughter. A son, Mark, died in 1999.
A visitation was set from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 24, at the First United Methodist Church, 446 Camden Ave., Moorestown, before a 10:30 a.m. memorial service there, with interment in Lakeview Memorial Park, Cinnaminson.
