WHEREAS, Maurice Schechter came into this world in St. Louis, Missouri, on June 27, 1907, and was educated in the East St. Louis, Illinois, public school system before attending Washington University and City College of Law and Finance where he earned his law degree; and

WHEREAS, a former Missouri state representative and senator, Maurice Schechter was first elected to the Missouri House of Representatives in 1934 and served until 1940 when he left office to establish his law career in St. Louis as one of the founding partners of Russell, Schechter, Weiss, and Ens, a successful law firm where he worked from the late 1950s until he retired in the early 1980s; and

WHEREAS, in 1960, Mr. Schechter won the race for the Missouri Senate where he represented the 13th District as a Democrat for the next sixteen years and offered amendments to proposed legislation so frequently that other senators began referring to the process as "Schechterizing" a bill; and

WHEREAS, a life member of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, Mr. Schechter compiled an enviable list of service to various organizations through the important roles he played as president and charter member of the Creve Coeur Township Democratic Club and member of the American Bar Association, Missouri Bar Association, St. Louis Bar Association, the Lawyers Association of St. Louis, and the Congregation B'nai Amoona for sixty years; and

WHEREAS, a proud recipient of countless awards and accolades including the 1970 St. Louis Globe-Democrat Certificate for Meritorious Service and the 1971 Suburban School Teachers Association School Bell Award, Maurice Schechter leaves behind to cherish his memory his devoted wife of sixty-nine years, Bess; his two children, Stanley I. Schechter of Clayton and Judith Kay Siegel of Creve Coeur; his five grandchildren, Deborah Jean Schechter, Elizabeth Ellen Schechter, Nancee Hope Siegel, Stephen Scott Siegel, and Susan Faith Siegel; and his nine great-grandchildren:

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we, the members of the Missouri Senate, Ninety-first General Assembly, unanimously join in paying final tribute to the memory of the late Maurice Schechter, a remarkable gentleman of peace and kindness in this world who will be sadly missed by all those who had the distinct pleasure of knowing and loving him; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Secretary of the Senate be instructed to prepare a properly inscribed copy of this resolution for the widow of the late Maurice Schechter, as an expression of our deepest sympathy.
