Ann was the daughter of Edwin Earl Eliker and Louise Anna Eliker. Ann graduated from Lincoln High School in 1948. She married Gene J. Scharton (the love of her life) March 6. 1949. Ann was a stay-at-home mom till she went to work for Dr. Arnot’s dental office. She worked for Minnigasco in Lincoln, Nebraska till she retired. Then when dad retired they moved to The Villages in Florida.
Ann was an avid reader, loved history, loved to play golf and her hand-held electronic games. She always took great pride in her appearance but wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. She was stubborn and fiercely independent, skills she used as the “only” female union representative for the Minnigasco employees. Our house was always the hub for all the family gatherings and all our friends.

She is survived by daughter, Terri Snyder (Greg) of Loveland, Colorado, son, David Scharton (Marylyn) of St. Paul, Nebraska, son, Steve Scharton of Lincoln, Nebraska and daughter, Denise Scharton of Lincoln, Nebraska, 8 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, 3 great-great grandchildren and countless friends.
