Edwina “Sherrie” Letcher, 87, long-time resident of Ramsey, New Jersey, passed away peacefully at the Masonic Village, Elizabethtown, PA, on Sunday, September 1, 2019.
She was born Edwina Churchill Maitland on December 10, 1931, at Englewood, New Jersey, the daughter of Thomas and Evadne Churchill Maitland. She graduated from Tenafly High School in 1949, attended Duke University and Fairleigh Dickenson College, and proudly earned a masters degree in education at William Paterson College. She is fondly remembered as an elementary school teacher in Ramsey, and for many years worked as a medical records professional at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, NY, and Bergen Pines Hospital in Paramus.
She is survived by and will be sorely missed by her husband, William Letcher, of Elizabethtown, PA, and children, Gary Letcher of Lewes, DE, Donna Moulin of Reading, PA, Roxanne Tavakkol of Mountain Lakes, NJ, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by a daughter, Tricia Letcher.
Sherrie loved socializing, traveling, playing bridge, reading, and always, learning new things. She was beloved for her positive and optimistic approach to life and could be counted on to enthusiastically embark on almost any adventure. She was a long-time and active member of the First Presbyterian Church of Ramsey, Phi Mu and Beta Sigma Phi sororities, the Red Hat Society, and the Prader-Willi Association. She was a clever and talented poet, writing them for special occasions, and was well-known as the “poet laureate” of the Masonic Village.
