Coral Doreen (Emery) Burg, 89, of Chilton, died on June 1, 2018, at her home in Chilton. She was born April 18, 1929, in Walker, MN, daughter of Lawrence and Madge (Curtis) Emery. On August 26, 1950, she married Melvin Burg at the Church of Peace in Fond du Lac.

During her life, Coral had the hardest job of them all: running a household full of children. She happily accepted the challenge, as well as being a “farm wife.” Her kind and caring nature spread over generations, extending to her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. It followed her to Uptown Commons, where she enjoyed spending time with friends and neighbors, except during Packer games. Coral had a “Do Not Disturb” sign for when the Green-and-Gold were playing. Her warm and caring nature lasted until the very end. Through any hardships in her life, she always handled the hurdles with dignity and grace.

Coral is survived by her children: Barbara Forstner, Kathleen (Fred) Klasen, Mark (Kathy) Burg, Dianne (David) Buechel, and Doreen (Daniel) Schneider; her grandchildren: Lisa (David) Arvai, Adrian Klasen, Amy (Jason) Karls, Michael (Lyndsey) Burg, Andrew (Sarah) Burg, Brian Burg (fiancee, Amber Moschel), Kristin (Aaron) Baltz, Eric Buechel (special friend, Emily Schneider), Zachary Schneider (special friend, Sarah Holden), and Nathan Schneider; ten great-grandchildren with one more on the way; brothers: Lamont Emery, Warren Emery, and James Emery; sisters: Iris Bullion and Virginia Emery; and a very good friend, Ceil Brehmer.

Coral was preceded in death by her husband, Melvin; her parents: Lawrence and Madge; her son, Steven Burg; her stepsons: Dennis Burg and Wayne Burg; a grandchild: Jacob Schneider; a great-grandchild: Willow Burg; brothers: Robert Emery, Vincent Emery, and John Emery; and sisters: Frances Elliott, Monica Skok, and Marlene Jurcak.

Funeral services are set for 7:00pm on Thursday, June 7, 2018, at Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton. Friends may call at the funeral home on the day of the service from 4:00pm until 7:00pm.

Grandma Coral was a beautiful example of unconditional love! I remember a kind, caring, beautiful lady when I was a young girl out on the farm. She was a gentle soul. I feel so grateful for the opportunity to visit with her recently. It was a very touching visit for me and it brought back so many wonderful memories of her! Rest in peace beautiful lady. You will be in my heart always!!
