Wilma C. Rosenboom
Wilma C. Rosenboom
Wilma C. Rosenboom, 86, of Camanche passed away peacefully at her residence Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013.

A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, at the Elvira Zion Lutheran Church.

Visitation was 4-7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 4, at Lemke Funeral Homes - South Chapel, Clinton.

Burial will take place at the Elvira Cemetery.

Lemke Funeral Homes is assisting the family with arrangements.

Wilma was born Dec. 9, 1926, in Low Moor to Wilhelm and Wilheminnie Luebker Hippler. She was a 1944 graduate of Clinton High School.

She was united in marriage to Roy Rosenboom Aug. 8, 1961.

She was a member of the Elvira Zion Lutheran Church most of her life and served on many committees there. She was also a member of the Naomi Circle, the P.N.G. Club and a longtime subscriber to Circa 21 Dinner theatre.

Wilma was a "roll up your sleeves and work" kind of gal. Most of her life was chronicled working on the farm, whether it was her and her husband's farm, just south of Low Moor, or her relatives' farm.

She also went to Mount St. Clare College, where she received a teaching certificate in 1945. For the next 20-plus years, she would teach elementary education at various country schools.

Wilma loved her family and will be deeply missed.

Wilma is survived by daughters, Joni Saling of Lathrop, Mo., and Lori (Dan) Peppmeier of Camanche; sons, David Rosenboom of Phoenix, Ariz., and Jerry Rosenboom of Camanche; grandchildren, Joel, Janelle, Joshua, Molly and Miranda; and a niece, Harriet Kukkuck of Preston.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, a granddaughter, Paige, a son-in-law, James Saling, and a sister, Helen Kukkuck.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be directed to the family.
