Virginia Doris Ermeling

September 12, 1937 ~ December 21, 2021 (age 84)


On Tuesday, December 21, 2021, Virginia Doris (Nienow) Ermeling, age 84, was chosen to enter into the Lord's Kingdom where she has been welcomed into His loving arms. 

Virginia was born on September 12, 1937 in the town of Easton, the daughter of John and Erlynda (Krueger) Nienow. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her ex- husband Clyde A. Ermeling and her siblings Gaylord, John, Clarence, Joyce, Mary Ann, and Laverne.

Survivors include her sons Clyde A. Ermeling, Arlington (Ace) C. Ermeling, and David J. Ermeling (Wendy Skola), and her daughter-in-law, Kathie Ermeling. Also, her grandchildren Chance, Elizabeth, Kayla, Ashley, Allison, Logan, Joscelyn, Sanja, and Jade. Also, nine great grandchildren. She had many nieces and nephews, including Yvonne (also Virginia's goddaughter), Cheryl, Daryl, and Bonnie.

Virginia, as a single mother, enrolled her sons into Zion Lutheran School where they had an excellent spiritual and educational background. She worked as one of the first meter maids in Wausau in 1970. She also supported her family by working at the courthouse, Johnson Hills, Kresge's, the Mint Cafe, Pine Bar, and the Wausau Mall. She was a gracious mother and loved to make meals for her sons and their friends. She was accepting, non-judgmental, and had a great sense of humor. She kept many photos and keepsakes so that her family would not be forgotten. She travelled to Florida and New Mexico to visit family and loved every precious moment. Her steadfast faith in the Lord kept her strong and genuinely loving. She will truly missed by all who knew her.

Many thanks to the Aspirus staff for comforting her prior to her passing.

A celebration of her life is planned for the summer of 2022.
