West Rush Road: Built for Dr Daniel B Schuster, and his wife, Ellen. Both are now deceased, sadly.
It’s an awesome house; it was like my second home, as a child and teen.
A second story with two bedrooms, bath, and screened porch were added in the late ’60’s or early ’70’s. It was carefully planned, to be in keeping with the design of the house.
When Dr Schuster died, their two daughters chose to gift the home to their lifelong friend, neighbor, and lawn mower, Ted Meister. He still lives there with his wife, daughters. Two little girls are growing up there, again!
Susie, Thank you so much for this! (I found it by accident) for years I thought that Teddy (Terry) was my brother. Finally, I asked Daddy, “Where does Teddy sleep?” That’ s when Daddy explained that Uncle Pat was our “uncle” but he was Teddy’s Daddy.
After Daddy died it made so much more sense to find a way to keep it in the family than to sell it. Teddy was the only one with a family. I hope that the girls loved growing up there and that their friends feel as you do.
Susie and Sunshine, I’m so glad you both found each other at this site. I’m wondering if either of you have any photos or other standout memories of growing up in this home? Peggi
I worked for Dr. Schuster at Strong in the early 1970’s. We became friends and I knew both of Dan’s daughters, Sally and Peggy. The girls contacted me when Dan was suffering with his cancer. I was delighted to hear that the girls left the house to Teddy. Dan spoke of him often. I have lost touch with the girls over the years and would very much to get back in touch. I have visited Dan and Ellen in Rush. If you could get me the addresses of them, I would be most grateful. My name is Marcia Wallace. My e.mail address is Peekapug@AOL.com. I have a red horse chestnut tree in my front yard. I loved them so much that Dan sent me two chestnuts from his tree and one actually grew. Even though Dan and Ellen are in heaven, I still have a connection to them. I look forward to hearing from you.
