Velma Strunk was born on September 23, 1925 to Otto and Dora (Schnuelle) Schuette at Scotland, South Dakota. At a young age, she lost her mother and was raised alongside her brothers by her father. She was baptized and confirmed in the Bethany Reformed Church of Scotland. She attended Nelles school through 8th grade and went on to graduate from Scotland High School in 1943. After graduation, she helped her father on the farm while her brothers were in the armed forces in World War II. Later she worked at Cargill Elevator as a book keeper.
