Malovrh, Virginia Agnes (Chuppa) (5 JUL 1925 - 13 APR 2015)

Virginia Agnes Malovrh, 89, returned to her heavenly home on April 13, 2015, after spending her final years under the devoted care of Clark County Health Care Center in Owen.

Virginia was born on July 5, 1925, the second of four children, to the late Clement and Cecelia (Swintek) Chuppa, in Milwaukee. She married Anton John Malovrh, a returning World War II veteran, on Thanksgiving, Nov. 25, 1948, at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Milwaukee. They made their home first in Brookfield and then in Medford.

Virginia's life was a testament to her staunch Catholic faith and devotion to doing God's will. Her example of selflessness, generosity and love was the mark of her life. She devoted herself to raising her children and grandchildren reporting her greatest achievement as having had the privilege of guiding the souls that God had entrusted to her. Virginia's love of music extended throughout her life as her piano and then organ lessons as a child lead her to earning a degree in music at Alverno College in Milwaukee. She continued to share her talent with piano lessons for countless children. She played the church organ and directed the men's choir at both St. Anthony's Church in Athens and then at St. Therese's Church in Schofield, the town where she and Anton retired.

She is survived by 12 of her children, her daughters, Ann Marie Covert, Jane Sabby, Peggy Liedtke, Heidi Zweifach, Julie Stegner, Monica Partington, and sons, Anthony, Martin, Paul, Joseph, Peter, Christopher, and their spouses; 26 grandchildren; more than 30 great-grandchildren; and her sisters, Geraldine and Grace.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Anton J.; her son, John; parents, Clement and Cecelia; and sister, Florence. We reflect with joy at the thought of their reunion in heaven.

Visitation will be from 9 to 11 a.m. on April 18 at St. Therese Catholic Church in Rothschild, followed by a Mass to celebrate her life at 11 a.m. Burial will be at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Kronenwetter.

John J. Buettgen Funeral Home is assisting the family at this time. Online condolences can be made at
