Wilfred "Dutch" Gregory Shepersky, age 93 of Meadowlands, MN, passed away peacefully with family at his side on January 2, 2023 at his home. He was born on September 26, 1929 in Clinton, Big Stone County, MN, to Leon and Nettie (Van Erem) Shepersky. Dutch grew up in that area on the farm with his many siblings. At the early age of 14 he began taking care of his mother at home on the farm. From there he went on to continue working in North Dakota and different parts of Minnesota doing everything from farming/harvesting to underground mining. He spent a good amount of his career in construction, building silos and as a cement worker. Dutch married the love of his life, Violet Olds and they started their family in Balkan, MN, spent time in Idaho and eventually settled in Toivola, MN. He spent his time fishing, hunting and even raising horses and cattle. Dutch also belonged to the NRA and Toivola Fire Department. He loved breaking trails with his snow machine, fishing in Canada (and everywhere else), traveling to different parts of the world and visiting Texas and Arizona in the motorhome.
