CHESHIRE — Eunice Judd Schaff died at age 95 peacefully in her home at Elim Park, Cheshire, on Aug. 31, 2013. She is formerly of Prospect.

She felt blessed to be married to the late Robert Schaff, Sr. for over 70 years. They had two wonderful sons, the late Robert Schaff, Jr. of Prospect and the late William Schaff of Dedham, Mass.

She was a member of Lady Fenwick Chapter, DAR. She retired from Peter Paul Cadbury in Naugatuck. For many years she enjoyed playing the piano in area nursing homes, and for the past 10 years, as a resident of Elim Park, to the delight of all who heard her play.
