Virginia V. Roche

August 20, 1923 — April 18, 2023


Virginia V. Roche passed away peacefully Tuesday April 18, 2023 at home. She was born August 20, 1923 the daughter of Selma (Seehafer) Marschall and Rudolph Marschall.


Virginia was married to Thomas Roche and they spent many years in the Chicago, IL and Scottsdale, AZ areas. Upon Thomas’ passing Virginia moved back to Wausau to be near family members. As a retired accountant she enjoyed keeping track of any financial situation to the penny. Virginia liked telling funny and amusing stories of years gone by with and of family. She was an avid Brewers and Packers fan and looked forward to each game. In her spare time needle point activities topped the list like Bru Cru or Pac Mug rugs.


Virginia is survived by stepsons Thomas Jr, Michael (Bev), and Timothy (Lynn) Roche. She is also survived by her sister-in-law Helen Marschall and many nieces and nephews.


She was preceded in passing by her parents, husband Thomas, brothers Clarence, Melvin (Alice), and Earl (Vera) Marschall and sister-in-law Dolores DeVoe.


The family would like to express their warmest appreciation to Jeanette Chrouser and the thoughtful, helpful TLC for Seniors staff that provided Virginia comfort in her home these past years. Also, Aspirus Comfort Care & Hospice care responders were so kind and comforting for Virginia during her last days which we are very thankful and all the continuing help from neighbor Karen Beck. Also, the family would like to thank Helke’s Funeral Home for all their assistance.


Virginia’s family has many fond memories that will be cherished and kept in our hearts. Per Virginia’s request cremation has occurred and burial will take place at a future date. Peace.
