Virginia was born on December 3, 1935, in Dubuque, daughter of Charles C. and Isabel J. (Pauly) Earle.

First and foremost, Virginia was a loving mother to her 4 children, Janet Uthe of Middleton, WI; Mark (Deb) Uthe of Manchester, IA; Diane (Kurt) Trimborn of Johnson Creek, WI; and Linda (Kevin) Miller of Center Point, IA. During her free time, Virginia enjoyed reading, playing cards, working crossword and jigsaw puzzles, sewing and crocheting. Her numerous handmade creations will be forever cherished by her family.

Besides her 4 children, Virginia is survived by the following people who loved her; her 14 grandchildren: Jennifer Uthe, Patrick (Lindsay) Kramer, Steve (Lauren) Trimborn, Amanda (Brennan) Melloy, Molly Kramer, Charlie Uthe, McKenna Miller, Garrett Trimborn, Reece Miller, Nickolas Uthe and Kaitlyn Uthe. Her 5 great-grandchildren: Braelyn, Kinley and Lydia Henning, Hadley Melloy and Austin Kramer. Virginia was excited to learn about another great-grandchild due in August. Her brother and sister-in-law, Roger and Karen Earle and her sister-in-law, Rosemary Uthe, all of Dubuque. And many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Virginia was preceded in death by her loving husband of 60 years, Frederick T. Uthe; her parents; 2 brothers, Charles and James; a sister, Mary Jane; her maternal and paternal grandparents; 2 sisters-in-law; a brother-in-law; and several aunts, uncles and cousins.

The family would like to extend a very special thank you the staff at Sunset Ridge Assisted Living for their unwavering care and friendship this past year to Virginia and her family. They would also like the nurses and staff at Rainbow Hospice of Johnson Creek to know how grateful they are for the care and comfort that they gave Virginia and her family these last few weeks.
