PIP Edith Scheutzow — Canton Quota club

Date of Death: January 18, 2010

Quota International mourns the loss of Past International President Edith Scheutzow, 78, who died January 18, 2010, surrounded by family in Ohio, U.S.A. A member of the Canton Quota club, Edith served as International President in 1990-1991. Her presidential theme, Begin with Enthusiasm, reflected her belief that enthusiasm is key to fully embracing and enjoying life. “She was a grand and gracious lady with an infectiously positive attitude and love of life,” said Executive Director Kathleen Treiber. “She was the wind beneath the wings of so many people who were touched by her generosity and kindness.” Edith was instrumental in the campaign to purchase the Washington brownstone that houses Quota’s World Headquarters and was proud to begin her term as president with the ceremonial burning of the Quota World Headquarters mortgage. In her presidential address at Convention in 1990 {Seattle, Washington}, she shared her conviction that Quota’s growth depends upon members’ zeal: “What better way can we use enthusiasm generated by our success in service than through recruiting new members and organizing new clubs. This same enthusiasm must permeate our club meetings, service projects, and fund raisers to help us retain these members.” Edith leaves behind her husband of 59 years, Roy. The two reared four daughters and worked together for 35 years as owner-operators of a Beltone Hearing Center. They retired in 1997 and began to divide their time between homes in Ohio and Florida. Edith remained active in both communities and found time to share a ready smile and tender spirit with everyone she met, most especially her ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. “She reached out to others,” said Kathleen, “and she did it so well. All of us who knew her were blessed to have had her in our lives.” Expressions of sympathy may be made to Edith’s husband, Roy, and Edith’s family at the following address: Roy Scheutzow and family, 560 North Prospect Ave., Hartville, OH 44632
