Barbara (Barbee) Ann Skorija, 81, of Twin Lake, formerly of Menominee, Mi., passed away Saturday, March 7, 2020.
Born July 2, 1938, to John and Pauline, she graduated from Menominee High School in 1957. She then attended UW-Marinette and received a Bachelor's Degree in Philosophy from Aquinas College.
She kept up with former classmates and helped organize class reunions. Strong in her Catholic faith, she enjoyed traveling and being with family, especially Sophia, Ellie and Sam. A proud Democrat, talented artist, and Green Bay Packer fan, she liked visiting with people and had a big smile when loved ones walked into her room. She was a funny, loving, caring, giving, kind and witty woman who will be missed.
She is survived by many relatives, Eric, Sophia, Ellie and Sam Stevens of the Village of Lakewood Club, Luke, Missy, Lucy and Allie Stevens of Long Grove, Ill., Margo, Katie and Mason Weydert of Iowa and Shon Cook of Blue Lake; friends, LaVern and Wally Fredricks, Sharon Caulkins, Lisa Scharlow, Nancy and Tom Beeman, Mike and Lisa Mcgahan and the entire Menominee High School Class of 1957.
She was preceded in death by her parents, John Skorija and Pauline Fronsee (Schafer); a sister, Kathryn Skorija and step-parents, Raymond and Marie Fronsee.
Visitation will be held at Beacon Cremation and Funeral Service, White Lake Chapel on Saturday, March 14 from 3 p.m., until time of funeral services at 5 p.m, with Pastor Craig Smith officiating. Memorial contributions can be made to the Little People of America, a non-profit organization loved and supported by her.
