A. C. TRULLINGER DIES SUDDENLY.
A. C. TRULLINGER, a life-long resident of Ringgold county and one of the county's most
highly respected citizens, died suddenly at his home in Liberty township Sunday evening.
Funeral services were held yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon at the Church of Christ in
Mount Ayr, being conducted by the pastor, Rev. W. Harold SMITH, assisted by Rev. B. I.
BLEVINS, pastor of the Tingley M. E. church, and burial was in Rose Hill cemetery.
Aaron Chatterton TRULLINGER closed his earthly pilgrimage at his home in Liberty
township on the evening of November 15, 1931. He was 73 years, seven months and 24 days
He was born March 21, 1858, in Davis county, Iowa, the third child of M. S.
and Margaret TRULLINGER. His parents moved to Ringgold county the following year, 1859,
settling in Middle Fork township in the pioneer days of the county. At the age of seven
years his mother died. His step-mother, Jane (HAMPTON) TRULLINGER, reared him to manhood.
On the 5th day of January, 1882, Mr. TRULLINGER and Lavina SNODGRASS were united in marriage.
They established a home in Ringgold county, but later moved to their present home in
Liberty township and have lived there the past 32 years. They expected to celebrate
their golden wedding anniversary next January.
One daughter, May, who is now Mrs. McCREARY, the wife of F. L. McCREARY, superintendent
of schools at Petersburg, Minn., came to bless this home.
The 73 years of Mr.
TRULLINGER's life speak a life well lived and one of great influence in the surrounding
community. He was a progressive farmer. He loved his home and was a most unselfish
husband and father. He delighted in sharing his home with his friends and his genial
welcome and kind hospitality made it a joy for his friends to be there.
Mr. TRULLINGER was a member of the Christian church at Mount Ayr, having placed his
membership during the pastorate of Bro. Ross WILLIAMS.
Mr. TRULLINGER's five sisters
and brothers have preceded him in death, but his four half-brothers and three
half-sisters survive him. They are: Irving TRULLINGER, Redding, Iowa; R. W. TRULLINGER,
State Center, Iowa; John TRULLINGER, Molala, Oregon; Loren TRULLINGER, Portland, Oregon;
Ellen BRYSON, Iola, Kan.; Mrs. Etta BROWN, Nooksack, Wash.; Mrs. Arcada BOWMAN, Molala,
Mr. TRULLINGER leaves to mourn his departure his faithful wife, his daughter,
his son-in-law, his grandson Bobbie, age nine, who was a constant companion of his
grandfather during the summer months, and Miss Naomi PRICE, who has made her home with
Mr. and Mrs. TRULLINGER for the past twelve years. Also many dear friends who feel in
his passing the loss of a real friend.
