The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

Mert Scheradella



Myrtle Rosetta (Mert) Scheradella peacefully passed away on March 6, 2014 at her home in Goldendale, WA.

She was born on April 16, 1944 to Edward and Mildred Green in Yakima, WA. Mert was the fifth of seven siblings, and was always considered an "angel" by her parents. She lived in Wapato until 1951 when the family moved to Goldendale, where she graduated high school in 1962. After high school, Mert attended Yakima Valley Community College before returning to Goldendale where she married Robin Scheradella on June 5, 1965.

Mert enjoyed spending time at home with her loving husband and their faithful dog Buddy; finding treasures at yard sales and thrift shops; sharing homemade gifts from Robin's Nest and homegrown flowers and vegetables from their garden; and beating her friends and family at ping-pong. Her contagious giggle could be heard from the halls of the Klickitat County Courthouse, where she worked for numerous years; from many Sunday School classrooms at New Life Assembly of God, where she attended church for most of her life; and from the front seat of a beloved 1952 Willys Jeep. Mert created a welcoming home wherever she and Robin lived, which became the center for family gatherings including summer fish fry's, fall harvest parties, Easter egg hunts and much more.

Mert was blessed with a gift of teaching, sharing her love of Jesus to countless friends, family members, co-workers, and kids of all ages. The day before she died, surrounded by a group of kids at church, Mert taught her last message on her favorite topic: The Good Shepherd.

Mert was preceeded in death by her dad and mom, Edward and Mildred Green along with siblings Wilma Maine, Myrna Harvey, and Billey Green.

She is survived by her husband Robin Scheradella; siblings Joan (Pete) Heming and Patti (Steve) Jones of Goldendale, Doug (Candy) Green of Puyallup, WA; sister-in-law Wilma Green of Goldendale; brother-in-law Marvin Harvey of Spokane, WA; and numerous nieces and nephews. Merti's loving kindness will be greatly missed by all those who knew her.
