Our mom, Virginia Ziolecki (nee Boelter) is no longer on the earth. At 88 years old, she was called on 08/26/2020 to be with her parents; Elmer and Esther Boelter, siblings, husband; Raymond A Ziolecki and sons, Ronald and Jerry. She has left a void in the lives of her dog; Peaches, her children; Raymond E (Gayle), Daniel (Sharon), Gail, Dawn (Tim Odor), grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and so many more. She was a unique lady, full of life, talents, creativity, imagination, and adventure. Children of all ages were drawn to her young at heart spirit. She ALWAYS found ways to entertain children with bubbles, coloring and toys that included 100’s of Smurf figurines. Her kitchen cabinets even contained a drum set (wooden spoons, Tupperware bowls and one Johnson Cookie Company Tin). Very often the house smelled of fresh baked cookies or other baked goodies. Christmas did not go by without numerous batches of cookies, pecan passies and poticas being baked. She supplemented the household budget by making craft items, of which the most memorable were crocheted snowflakes and teddy bear ornaments. A cake decorating course at MATC lead her to making wedding cakes for many happy couples. The pool table in the basement was mom’s work area and sewing center. Often you would find her in the basement cutting out or sewing something for the family. She made matching square dance outfits for her and Ray, clothes and costumes for her children and grandchildren. The first thing sewn on a new Pfaff machine was a beautiful wedding dress for her grand-daughter Jackie. Yet the old Viking machine was still needed to patch tents, make seat covers for the truck or just patch the many pairs of jeans that seem to find their way back to mom. Her sewing skills have gone world-wide in the quilts she helped put together at St Paul’s Lutheran Church for Lutheran World Relief. Mom’s adventurous side was satisfied by the travels taken with family. The family made annual camping trips to Eagle River along with other camping spots around the state. She and Ray, along with a few of their children, saw the country from the open road, towing their trailer behind. After Ray retired, they packed the trailer and hit the open road for destinations such as the northeast coast and Alaska. They made the Alaska trip twice to pan for gold, fish for salmon and halibut, clam digging and just to see the country. Mom was always working on something but no matter how busy, she found time for a cup of coffee with family and friends. Her smile and laughter will be a cherished memory. Private inurnment will be held at Highland Memorial Park.
