Virginia E. Schelk, 93, of Sheboygan, passed away on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, at Sheboygan Progressive Care Center. She was born on April 3, 1924, to the late John and Christina Bersch in Crivitz.

Virginia worked for 22 years at Kohler Co. before retiring at 63 years of age. She greatly enjoyed her retirement. Virginia was the president of the VFW Post 8314 in Gillett for two years. She also enjoyed bowling and gardening in her younger years.

Virginia had a big heart for her family and especially her grandchildren. She loved to socialize, and people genuinely enjoyed being around her.

Virginia is survived by her children, Robert Jr. (Carol) King, LaRue King (fiancé Brian Lewandoske) and Barbara (Andrew) Lindsay; eight grandchildren, Dawn King, Lisa King, Lamar King Jr., Nedra King, Brian Lindsay, Murray Lindsay, Elijah Lindsay and Christopher Schelk; and numerous great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by three sisters, one brother and her parents.

There will be a private graveside service for Virginia at Wildwood Cemetery with the Rev. Timothy Mech of Trinity Lutheran Church officiating.

The family would like to thank the staff at Sheboygan Progressive Care Center for their care of Virginia.
