Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa

OBITUARY ~ ROSSIE TRIMBLE

Rossie Alberta SCHLAPIA was born August 28th 1894 on a farm in Rice Township, Ringgold County, Mount Ayr, Iowa. She was one of seven children born to Charles W. and Attie GLEASON SCHLAPIA. She passed away on January 27, 1985 at the Clearview Nursing Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa.

Rossie was educated in the country schools of the county and later moved into Mount Ayr with her parents. Rossie was a life-long Christian and church worker. She was a member of First Baptist Church and attended regularly as long as her health permitted.

On March 4th, 1915 Rossie was married to Charles Raymond TRIMBLE. To this union were born three children, Charles W., Mildred L. and Melvin E.

Remaining to cherish her memory are one brother, Leonard SCHLAPIA of Maryville, Missouri, the three children, Charles W. and wife Audrey of West Des Moines, Mildred L. and husband Lyle NICHOLS of Mount Ayr, Melvin E. and wife Mary Jo of Saratoga, California, nine grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.

She was preceded in death by her parents, four brothers, Owen, Floyd, Arthur, Emery and one sister Oma. Her husband of sixty-six years, Charlie, passed away on December 22, 1981.

Rossie was a homemaker of the finest degree. She was happiest when cooking, sewing, crocheting and taking care of her home. Along with her homemaking, Rossie had a keen sense of humor. One of her recipes, recently found by her daughter, was for a Sponge Cake. The recipe read, borrow all the ingredients and forget to return them.

Her life was always full, working, helping others whenever needed. She delighted in her grandchildren and all their happenings.

Services were held January 29, 1985 at the First Baptist Church, Mount Ayr, Iowa by the Wilson-Watson Funeral Home. Officiating were Rev. Paul CARTER and Rev. Fred TRIMBLE. Music was provided by Nancy SACKETT, Edna JONES and Neva FISHER. Casketbearers were Gerald YOUNG, ANsel SAVILLE, Loren DRAKE, RObert CHRISTNER, Harold BOWER and Gene LARSON. Honorary Pallbearers were Michael TRIMBLE, Jack TRIMBLE, Charles H. TRIMBLE, Robert REESE, Frank LONGAY, Capt. Kurt NICHOLS and Lt. Christopher NICHOLS. Burial was in Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Iowa.
