Scharf, Mrs. Mamie (Gardner) (Retirement - 1971)

Mrs. Mamie (Gardner) Scharf, a Granton teacher, will be honored at an Open House on May 2, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the school cafeteria at Granton. All former pupils, friends and relatives are invited.

Mrs. Scharf will retire, at the close of the current school year, after 43 years of teaching, all of which have been in the Granton area, with the exception of one year.

Mrs. Scharf graduated from Granton High School with the class of 1927, attended the Neillsville Teacher Training School for a year and began her teaching career at the Heathville School, in the town of Fremont, in September 1928. The following 12 years were spent in Fremont Township - six years at the Cozy Corner School and six years at the Pine Circle School. She then spent five years at Oriole Hill School and eight years at Merryvale School, both in the Town of York. Mrs. Scharf taught for the next four years at the Poplar Grove School in Lynn, and one year at Breezy Hill School in the Town of Worden, before joining the Granton Public School system in 1959.

She earned a Bachelor Degree in elementary education from Wisconsin State University-Stevens Point by attending summer sessions and night school classes.

Many of her students are children of former students; and in one instance she is now teaching a third generation - William Genteman, father of Mrs. Francis Langreck and grandfather of all five of the Langreck children now attending the Granton School.

Mrs. Scharf and her husband, Harold, live on a farm on Rt. 1 Granton. Their plans include traveling and fishing.
