The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1931

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 of age.

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, Oregon.

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.

NOTE: Interment was at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa.
