James “Jim” Hubert Verschelde was born on April 29, 1943, to Herman and Caroline (Van Uden) Verschelde on the family farm in Minneota. He grew up on the family farm before moving to Faribault after his father’s death in 1957. He later moved into the Robert Milton Home in Redwood Falls, and he has lived in Redwood Falls for all of his adult life. Jim enjoyed spending time with his family, and he especially loved opening gifts on his birthday and holidays. He was a huge fan of the Minnesota Twins, and he enjoyed going to their games. A highlight for him was getting to watch the Twins from a suite last year. Jim kept busy making crafts through REM, and he especially enjoyed painting. Jim also enjoyed camping, fishing, and going to fairs with the REM staff and roommates. He was very funny and always honest, and he always had a hankie.

Jim died on Wednesday, March 16, 2022, at the Carris Health Redwood Hospital in Redwood Falls. He is survived by his sisters Eileen Differding, Rita (Bob) Mack, Carol Roles, Bernie Verschelde, and JoAnn Scheerhoorn; brother-in-law Louis Spinner; and many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, siblings Margaret Spinner, Kitty Hoffmann, Mary Hanson, and David Verschelde, and brothers-in-law Alvin Differding, Larry Hoffmann, Ed Roles, Jim Hanson, and Wayne Scheerhoorn.
