The Baron Scherer Chapel

The Baron Scherer Chapel
The Baron Scherer Chapel (“The Chapel on the Hill”) is located in the Bellevue Cedar Hill Memory Gardens in Daytona Beach. Fl. Karen Szczeniak, the volunteer Find-A Grave photographer who took the pictures, called the Chapel grand and impressive.  She says the chapel is in generally good condition but has some minor water seepage on one wall.  The wooden benches may be in need of some touch-up too.  Attached to the Chapel are two wings of an ordinary mausoleum structure.  The cemetery employee who took her there says it is the only one like it on the cemetery grounds… “and the cemetery is hugh!”
Buried in the Chapel are:
Marie Baron Scherer
b. 14 May 1897  in Italy
d. 3 Nov 1992 in Contra Costa, California
Luis Pradillo Scherer
b. 20 Jun 1895 in Mexico City
d. Apr 1964 in Volusia County, Florida
Wylda (Yolanda Ofelia) Baron Nimidoff
b. 7 Jul 1905 in Patterson, NJ
d. 25 Nov 1986 in Contra Costa, California
Demitri Alexander Nimidoff
b. 12 Feb 1896 in Russia
d. Feb 1968 in Lafayette, Contra Costa, California
Gean (Eugene) A Baron

Baron Scherer Chapel

The Baron Scherer Chapel (“The Chapel on the Hill”) is located in the Bellevue Cedar Hill Memory Gardens in Daytona Beach. Fl.

Karen Szczeniak, the volunteer Find-A Grave photographer who took the pictures, called the Chapel grand and impressive.  She says the chapel is in generally good condition but has some minor water seepage on one wall.  The wooden benches may be in need of some touch-up too.  Attached to the Chapel are two wings of an ordinary mausoleum structure.  The cemetery employee who took her there says it is the only one like it on the cemetery grounds… “and the cemetery is huge!”

Marie Baron Scherer had the Chapel built in hopes that other Baron family members would be buried there also.
