Rosella A. Schober — Mazeppa

MAZEPPA — The Mass of Christian Burial for Rosella A. Schober will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Mazeppa, with the Rev. Robert G. Meyer officiating. Burial will be in the church cemetery.

Mrs. Schober, 89, of Mazeppa, died Sunday (June 15, 2008) at Zumbrota Care Center, of cancer.

Rosella Anna Delva was born Nov. 7, 1918, in Chester Township, Wabasha County. She grew up on the family farm and attended Musty Country School. She then assisted local families with housekeeping needs. On Sept. 3, 1940, she married Raymond Henry Schober at Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Mazeppa. In 1941 they started a trucking business in Bellechester, and in 1951 they bought the Delva family farm. They moved to Mazeppa in 1973 following their retirement from farming.

Mrs. Schober also worked at Zumco and the Pine Cheese Mart. She was a member of Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church, the Mazeppa Senior Citizens and the Mazeppa Homemakers. She enjoyed many pastimes, including crocheting, embroidery, baking bread, bird watching, traveling, and playing cards and bingo. She treasured time with family and friends and was exceptionally proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by a son, Ralph (Juanita) of Poplar Grove, Ill.; two daughters, Irene (Ken) Berg and June (Pat) Blee, both of Mazeppa; and a sister, Dorothy Arendt of Bellechester. Other survivors include five grandchildren, Tamara (Tom) Berg-Beniak, Matt Schober, Theresa (Dale) Worley, and Miranda and Christina Blee; five great-grandchildren, Travis, Trevor and Tianna Beniak, and Wyatt and Dakota Schober; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband on April 3, 2007; and her parents, John and Clara (Frank) Delva.


Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Mahn Family Funeral Home-Larson Chapel in Zumbrota, and an hour before the service Thursday at the church in Mazeppa.
