Virginia Marie Wehseler was born January 2, 1931 in St. Cloud, Minnesota to John and Elizabeth (Doll) Wehseler. On October 11, 1950 she was united in marriage to Sylvester Salzl at St. Martin Catholic Church in St. Martin.  The couple farmed in Millwood Township. Along with being a homemaker and raising seven children, Virginia kept the “home fires burning” throughout the years on the farm while Sylvester worked off the farm. Virginia with the help of the kids, was the foundation of the many daily chores of the dairy farm. She cooked and baked countless hours. Her family ate many a loaf of her excellent homemade bread along with pies, cookies, and jelly. Every Sunday there was fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, and pie on the table. In the most recent years, Virginia’s life was greatly enhanced by the many thoughtful and compassionate caregivers who cared for her including those at Park View in Melrose, Mother of Mercy  in Albany, and Moments Hospice of St. Cloud. We her family are eternally grateful for the kindness that was given to our mother.

Virginia was a member of St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in St. Rosa and the Christian Mothers.
