Obituary for Virgene A. Schmid

Virgene A. Schmid (nee Hansen), age 81, passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 1, 2018. She was born December 21, 1936 in Des Plaines, IL, and was a longtime resident of Geneva, IL.

Virgene was the beloved wife of the late Roger P. Schmid, who preceded her in death on March 27, 1991, loving mother of Ronda (Tom) Campbell of Aurora, IL, and Greg (Madeline) Schmid of Naperville, adored grandmother of Lucy and Jackie Schmid, devoted daughter of the late Arthur and Josephine Hansen, dear sister of Jacklyn (Tom) Wetzel of Florida, the late Mary Lou Hansen, and the late Gloria (Tom) Smith, beloved aunt of Genie Markley and many other loved nieces and nephews, sister-in-law of Robert (the late Norma) Schmid, Larry (Ann) Schmid, David (Donna) Schmid and the late Claudia(David) Schmid, and friend of many.

Virgene grew up in Chicago where she met Roger. They married on June 12, 1965 and moved throughout the U.S. until settling in Geneva in 1977. Virgene worked most of her career at the Merra Lee Shops and The Little Traveler in Geneva, and she was a member of Geneva Lutheran Church for many years. She enjoyed reading, painting, biking, and watching tennis. She especially loved her grandchildren and granddogs.

Virgene will be remembered for her sense of humor. She loved to tell stories (whether true or not), and she always made people laugh. Virgene was the life of the party!
