Virginia  M. “Ginny” (Lisowe) Korb passed away peacefully surrounded by family at the age of 89, on August 26, 2020. She was born on the first day of summer June 21, 1931 in the town of Brothertown to Arthur & Regina (Broeckel) Lisowe. She attended Holy Trinity school in Jericho. 

She married Andrew L. Korb on August 17, 1957 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Jericho. They were well known in the community especially for operating the Hi-Way Bar in Brothertown for 33 years. Ginny was always there for her family, lived life to the fullest and had a good time while doing it. She enjoyed fishing, gardening, traveling, playing bingo, and being with friends for monthly breakfast club & birthday club dinner. She was an avid fan of polka. Ginny was a dedicated caller to the Jerry Schneider Show AM 1450 and for decades was known for her birthday shout outs. No matter where she went, she always ran into people that she knew. Her energy and friendship will be sadly missed by all who knew her or were lucky to be part of her family.

On behalf of my mom and our family I want to express our deepest sympathy to your family on the lost of Ginny. My mom Lucille (Groeschl) Cullen resides at Libby's in Chilton where Beverly use to take care of her. Mom had expressed to me about how we were related through the Broeckel side as my mom's grandma was Mary Broeckel married to Adam Franzen. I remember Ginny and Andy from visits to my grandpa Groeschl's tavern in Brothertown. Ginny always had a beautiful smile and so friendly whenever you talked to her. May God be with your family during this difficult time. Sincerely, Tom & Linda Cullen and Lucille Cullen

Shooting pool many years ago at the Hi-Way bar. Ginny had that same big smile! My sympathies to her family.
