Virginia 'Jeanie' Boersma, age 81, a longtime resident of Spider Lake Township, died on Sunday, November 8, 2020, at the Shell Lake Health Care Center in Shell Lake, Wisconsin.

Virginia was born on August 28, 1939, in Red Bluff, California to parents Charles and Ruth Clemonds.  On October 29, 1960, she was united in marriage to William Boersma in Harvey, Illinois.  She worked various jobs while moving around the country due to William's work in the industrial construction industry.  The couple purchased property in Spider Lake Township in 1969, built a home on it in 1970, and they moved into their new home in 1971 where they have resided since.  Virginia was a charter member of P.E.O. Chapter DM of Hayward, and was an active member of the Teal, Lost Land and Ghost Lakes Improvement Association, serving as their Secretary for 10 years.  She enjoyed flower gardening, bird watching, fishing, snowmobiling, cooking/baking, and will be remembered for her cookouts on McNott Island on Teal Lake.  

Virginia is survived by her husband William "Bill", daughter Sue (Jim) McNamee of Hayward, two granddaughters Cassidy and Riley Gould of Hayward, and her beloved Shih Tzu, Maggie.
