Cheri Marie Bletscher, 60, of Rulo, passed away Thursday, Oct. 9, 2014 at Lincoln. She was born Nov. 29, 1953 at Falls City to Marge (Koelzer) Kopf and the late Leonard Kopf.

On June 30, 1973 she married her high school sweetheart, Doyle Bletscher, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church at Rulo.

Cheri was raised in rural Falls City and graduated from Falls City High School in 1972.
