      Rosina Schowalter was born into this world on May 18th, 1836, in Rhine Bavaria, Germany. As a 1 1/2 year old child, she came with her parents in 1836 to America, and settled in the wilderness near Franklin, Iowa. She married Elder Christian Schowalter on October 25th, 1855, with whom she shared joy and sorrow, and in her role as wife truly supported him until he was called home on January 12, 1907. This marriage was blessed with 14 children, 7 of whom preceded her in their return to their heavenly home.

      She leaves behind 7 children (5 sons and 2 daughters), 2 sons-in-law, 4 daughters-in-law, 23 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren, with many relatives and acquaintances, to mourn her loss. Her final illness came upon her on the morning of February 9th when she suffered a stroke, and she passed away gently and calmly in God on the 22nd of February, 1917. She was a faithful member of our congregation, and was almost never missing from church service. She bore her last suffering in patience and submission to God's will. She was 80 years, 9 months, and 4 days old at the time of death. The funeral took place on February 25th, with many participating. P.P. Hilty offered words of comfort from Mark 14:28.
