Terry H. Schenkus

Terry H. Schenkus, age 79, of Chilton, died on Thursday, December 4, 2024 at Century Ridge in Chilton.  He was born February 21, 1944 in Milwaukee, son of the late Harold & Lorraine (Bergmann) Schenkus.

Terry grew up on the family farm and enjoyed every minute being out in the yard and helping with the chores around the farm.  When he moved, Terry missed being on the farm.  His passion for the outdoors and being around others never left him so he took time to help others by mowing lawns, raking leaves, and taking walks.  He continued throughout his life to being a blessing to others by going out of his way to help everyone around him.  He also faithfully attended Ebenezer United Church of Christ in Chilton where he was able to visit with friends of the church body.

As an avid sports fan, Terry consistently cheered on his beloved Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers.  He was also a long time member of the Chilton Kiwanis Club.

Survivors include his siblings: Kay Heckle, Linda Edington, Greg (Sue) Schenkus, Ted (Alice) Schenkus; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and a sister: Betty Krause.

Terry’s family would like to thank the entire staff of Century Ridge in Chilton for all of the care that was shown to both him and his family while he lived there.  They would also like to thank the hospice care staff from Calumet County Home Care and Hospice for their special attention and care.  Terry’s great niece, Vicky Head, was also a blessing for helping care for Terry’s needs.
