Vera M. Schuh, 100, of Huron, died Monday, April 15, 2013, in Admiral’s Pointe Nursing and Rehab, Huron.
Vera was born Jan. 16, 1913, in Bridgewater Twp., Ohio. She was a lifelong resident of Huron.
She was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, Huron, and the Mary Martha Circle of the church. She was an avid gardener and enjoyed needlework and was a seamstress for many years. Vera had crocheted more than 1,200 children's sweaters for Knit for Kids, which began as the Guideposts Sweater Project, and eventually World Vision. We believe that Vera began this feat about eight years ago. Many people faithfully supplied Vera with large amounts of yarn, which would very quickly be turned into a colorful mass of sweaters, first decorating the pews of Zion Lutheran and windowsills in the sanctuary, then, after being blessed, would be sent to World Vision to be distributed around the world.
Vera is survived by two daughters, Mildred Morey, of Sandusky, and Margery Orshoski, of Huron; one son, Carl E. Schuh, of Micco, Fla.; three grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and 13 great-great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Raymond Schuh, in 1978; parents, George R. and Maroa E. (Malcolm) Gregg; four sisters, and two brothers.
Friends may call from 10 a.m. Wednesday, April 24, until a service at 11 a.m. at Zion Lutheran Church, 930 Main St., Huron. The Rev. Mandy Oleson, pastor, will officiate. Burial will be in Meadow Green Memorial Park, Huron.
Contributions may be made to World Vision, c/o Zion Lutheran Church, Huron.
