Virginia Anne Scheuerman, 83, of Hickory Creek Healthcare, Winamac, In claimed victory in Christ and went home to the Lord on February 11, 2020. Anne, as she was known by family and friends, was born in Wasusau, Wi on April 21, 1936 as the youngest of seven children. Her parents, Herbert and Ester Zimmermann, were farmers in Easton Township, where Anne learned the hard and satisfying life of living on a farm. The Zimmermann children all graduated from St. John Lutheran School. After grade school, Anne attended Wausau High School and then went on to receive a B.S. from Wi State Teachers College, Stevens Point, Wi in 1958. Her first teaching position was a Hawthorne School, Waukesha, WI.

On June 27, 1959, Anne married Conrad Scheuerman. They resided in Oshkosh, Wi where she taught at the Jefferson School. After a few years and kids being born, Conrad's job with Rockwell International took the family of five to Indiana where they settled into the small, farming community of North Judson. Both Conrad and Anne took great interest in the community and were active members at St. Peter Lutheran church and their kids attended the parochial school. Anne was an active member in the St. Peter choir, the ladies' group, The Artisans and participated in women's Bible study. Anne loved her home and garden! One of her many joys was providing seasonal flower arrangements for Sunday services with her flowers. Anne had a beautiful voice and a melodious whistle. She was also a talented pianist and would sit at the piano playing and singing. Anne  loved to sew and turned that passion into a fabric store named Country Knits. The business started in her basement and after a few years, moved to a store front in North Judson. After closing Country Knits, Conrad and Anne owned and operated the Appliance and TV Center in North Judson for 20 years. 2001 brought retirement and the return to WI, with the last five years being a residents at the WI Veterans home. While at the Veterans Home, Anne was able to use her artistic talent and made flower arrangements and jewelry which she sold in the gift shop. Her items were in demand and would be purchased almost as soon as placed on the shelf. After Conrad's death, Anne moved back to Indiana to be closer to her North Judson roots.

Anne's real passion was helping others and did so with a servant's heart. Whether she was making a meal for someone, volunteer teaching home economics, donating her time and talent in various ways or visiting residents in the healthcare facilities where she resided who did not get visitors, Anne was always on the lookout for a need to be filled. In the words of her sister, Doris, Anne was practical and gracious. She did not want accolades, Anne simply did not like seeing someone in need or hurting and did all she could to fill the void.

Anne is proceeded in death by her husband of 55 years, Conrad, infant son Paul, brother Harold Zimmermann(Marion Blaska), sister Mildred(Jerome) Seidl, sister Caroline(Harvey) Yolitz Serley, sister Wilma(Dave) Christ and grandchild Daniel Prater, Anne is survived by her brother David(Norma) Zimmermann, her sister Doris(Amory) Moore, children Peter(Karen) Scheuerman of Plymouth, Wi, Ruth Scheuerman(David Trusty) of Winamac, In, Mary (Dan) McGhiey of Carmel, In, 7 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren and a large extended family.

A memorial service will be held at St. Peter Lutheran Church, North Judson on March 7 at 11:00 am CT with visitation an hour before. Cremains of Conrad and Anne will be put to rest at Peace Lutheran cemetery, Oshkosh, WI at the family's convenience. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to St Peter Lutheran Church & School, 810 w Talmer Ave. North Judson, In 46366 or Hickory Creek Healthcare Foundation at http://www.hickorycreekhealthcare.org/

Pete,Ruth,and Mary,
So very sorry to hear of your moms death...
Anne was the first person I met on Main Street in North Judson when i moved to town hoping to get Jim to marry me! I had walked out of the liquor store with a bottle of wine as I was having Jim over for dinner that night. Behind me I heard a voice saying .. You must be Terry from Colorado .... Jim’s mom Lelia is my dear friend ! I sure felt embarrassed standing there with my wine bottle !
Later I discovered how delightful your mom was and she was always a wonderful friend to me as I adjusted to life in North Judson as a newlywed! I still cook with sone of her recipes and think of her and your dad often ! Loosing your mom and dad is certainly a difficult journey. My prayers are with you all ! ❤️
