Norbert A. Rohmer
1927 - 2015
Mass of Christian Burial for Norbert Anton Rohmer, age 88 of Muenster is set for
10:00 AM, Monday, December 14, 2015 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church with Father
Ken Robinson officiating. Burial will follow in Sacred Heart Cemetery under the
direction of Scott Funeral Home of Muenster. A Rosary and Vigil will be held at
6:00 PM, Sunday, December 13, 2015 at the funeral home. Mr. Rohmer died
Thursday, December 10, 2015.
Norbert was born April 16, 1927 in Muenster, the youngest of fourteen children of Leo and Anna (Koelzer) Rohmer. He attended Sacred Heart School and was a member of Sacred Heart Parish. Norbert married Ella Mae Voth on April 3, 1951 in Saint Mary’s Catholic Church in Gainesville. They were the proud parents of five children.
Norbert and Ella Mae lived on their farm north of Lindsay until moving to Muenster in 1988. In addition to farming and raising cattle, he also helped his brother Ollie drill water wells for 25 years. Each year he would combine his own crops as well as for friends and neighbors.
Norbert was a good provider. He loved his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He loved watching his grandchildren play sports. He enjoyed farming, taking care of his cattle, and gardening…tomatoes and especially onions. After moving to Muenster, he often drove back out to the farm to enjoy his memories of farm life.
He was mechanically inclined and enjoyed taking care of the maintenance items on his family’s vehicles. He was always under the hood checking the oil…and monitoring the number of miles driven – the kids were careful to not drive down the “drag” too many times.
He was very meticulous about the care of his tools – he could always tell if one of his children or sons-in-law had used them if they were not put back exactly as he had them. He would not be upset, but simply ask if it had been used because he noticed it had been moved. The same goes for his cattle trailer. If it was borrowed and not put back “just so,” he would put the trailer hitch on his pickup so he could reposition the trailer to his preferred exact spot.
At night time, after daddy said “lights out,” the kids would often read books by the glow of the light on their electric blanket controllers. Norbert also had “exceptional” hearing abilities. Also at bed time, if they had the radio on at a volume where they could barely hear it, he would let them know it was too loud and to turn it down or turn it off.
A story that Norbert would retell on occasion was about the time when some of the family went to the St. Jo rodeo. Carol came home, sat on his lap, and told him the funny joke a clown said. “Birdie, birdie in the sky. Why did you do that in my eye?” Norbert laughed each time he retold this story.
When Gene and Carol wanted to raise baby calves, their dad sectioned off a portion of a lot for them to do this. Carol admits that Gene often got the short end of the stick on this one because he got stuck with more feedings than she did. Their dad would buy the feed throughout the year and when the calves were sold, he was paid back every penny due to him keeping close track on costs.
Daddy, as his kids fondly called him, had a loud, boisterous laugh, that is sure to be missed and a long time memory for his family and friends.
Norbert is survived by his wife of 64 years and their five children and spouses: Betty Perkowski and husband Alan of Plano, Barbara Mosman and husband Jimmy of Gainesville, Helen Whitecotton and husband David of Montague, Gene Rohmer and wife Tammy of Gainesville, and Carol Bowman and husband Kenny of Prosper.
Surviving grandchildren include Stephen Tyler and wife Danielle, Lori Ruml and husband Kevin, Jeanie Martin and husband Joey, Lisa Reaves and husband Jaret, John Mosman and wife Amber, Thomas Whitecotton and wife Cassie, Sarah Morrow and husband Paul, Michael Whitecotton, Mark Whitecotton, Bobby Rohmer, Jonathan Rohmer, Cathy Blake and husband Patrick, Travis Weatheread, Jennifer Bowman, and Kailey Bowman. Great-grandchildren include Jake and Cody Tyler; Max, Julianna, and Spencer Ruml, Kenlea Reaves; Cameron, Kyle, and Carson Whitecotton; Bryson and Chryssa Morrow; Patty and Abby Blake. Two more are expected in May. His only surviving sibling is Gertie Voth. Norbert is also survived by two sisters-in-law: Imelda Rohmer and Viola Rohmer, both of Muenster as well as one brother-in-law, Patrick “Scotty” McCallion of Tucson, Arizona.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers: Albert, Arnold, Alois, Ed, and Urban Rohmer; and sisters: Mary Rohmer, Bertha Wooten, Rita Becker, Eleanor Sicking, Martha McKinney, Agnes McCallion, and Adeline Pettit.
Pallbearers are: Stephen Tyler, Thomas Whitecotton, Jonathan Rohmer, John Mosman, Michael Whitecotton, Travis Weatheread, Bobby Rohmer, and Mark Whitecotton.

1915 - 2015
Mass of Christian Burial for Tony John Trubenbach,
Jr., age 99 of Muenster, was held Wednesday, September 2, 2015 at Sacred Heart
Catholic Church in Muenster with Father Ken Robinson officiating. Burial was in
Sacred Heart Cemetery under the direction of Scott Funeral Home of Muenster.
Rosary/vigil led by Father
Ken Robinson was held Tuesday, September 1, 2015 at Sacred Heart Church. The family Rosary prior to
the funeral was led by Ella Mae Rohmer and Gloria Becker. Mr. Trubenbach died
August 30, 2015.
Tony was born Oct. 5, 1915 in Muenster to Tony Trubenbach, Sr. and Lena Temple Trubenbach. He married Thelma Margaret Fette on Oct. 6, 1936. Tony was a rancher.
Survivors include sister-in-law Agnes Stormer; nephews and spouses Karl and Beth Trubenbach and Richard and Shelly Trubenbach and their children Levi, Lacey, Lane, and Ty Trubenbach, and River Stewart; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his wife Thelma; sisters Catherine and husband Henry Voth, and Margrete; brothers Alois and wife Louise Trubenbach, Joe and wife Cecilia Trubenbach, and Martin and wife Lena Mae Trubenbach.
Tony John Trubenbach, Jr. was born in Muenster on Oct. 5, 1915 to parents Tony Sr. and Lena Temple Trubenbach. He had five siblings: Catherine, wife of Henry Voth, Alois married to Louise Schmitt, Margrete, Joe married to Cecilia Gieb, and Martin married to Lena Mae Schmitz. The family was raised on a ranch north of Muenster where they made a living farming and ranching.
As a child, Tony attended Sacred Heart School. He left school and continued to farm and ranch. Tony worked incredibly hard to take care of his farm and his animals.
On Oct. 6, 1936, the day after he turned 21, Tony married his soul mate, Thelma Fette. But the two were not always the best of friends, apparently. As the story goes, Thelma’s horse, Bailey made a frequent habit of stealing oats from Tony’s horse. They obviously worked it out, and eventually formed a very special relationship.
The couple worked together in all aspects of life, including investments in many industries. They opened Tony’s Seed and Feed in 1952, and a feedlot in the 1960s. But Tony’s real passion was ranching. He loved horses and cattle. In 1981, he won an Outstanding Farmer Award in Cooke County, and in 1995, he won an Outstanding Conservationist Award for Montague County.
Tony was truly an amazing man. Until his early nineties, he was always the one to run the iron during the fall branding.
Like Father said at the vigil, you can’t talk about Tony or Thelma, without talking about the other. They were well known by many people across the country, and an icon in the community. They loved to sit on the back porch and watch the kids play in the lot behind their house.
Among many others, his friends Tom, Roy, Joe, and Don Hartman, Loyd Trubenbach, Jimmy Jack Biffle, Joe Hellman, and their wives were very important to him. Specifically his special friend, Larry Hennigan. Those two spent countless hours together.
Tony and Thelma had a truly special marriage. One of his favorite things to say about making a marriage work for that long was, "You just have to start with the right one.” After 77 years of marriage, Tony was by Thelma’s side as she went to meet God. They lived a life of loyalty, dedication, and truly showed us how to live the Sacrament of Marriage.
The family has no doubt that he is happy, next to God, and next to Thelma.
Pallbearers were Karl Trubenbach, Richard Trubenbach, Loyd Trubenbach, Mike Trubenbach, Wayne Trubenbach, and Tom Hartman. Honorary pallbearers were Larry Hennigan, Jimmy Jack Biffle, Joe Hellman, Spunky Adams, and Roy Bryan.
Memorials can be made to Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch, P.O. Box 1890, Amarillo, TX 79174-0001.

to 8:00 PM, Friday, August 14, 2015 at the funeral home in Saint Jo. Mr. Cone
died Monday, August 10, 2015.
Steven Scott Cone was born October 16, 1940 in Jackson, Mississippi to Thaddeus Scott and Marilyn Leodora (Williams) Cone. He was one of their three children.
Steve attended college at Mississippi State, earning a degree in Engineering. While there, he served in the Civil Air Patrol and joined the Air Force through the R.O.T.C. His Air Force Service brought him to the Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth where he met his wife Carolyn. After leaving the Air Force he continued his career in aviation engineering which eventually lead to his own successful business as an Engineering Consultant.
After two and a half decades he and his wife realized their dream and moved to the country. He loved to do work on his tractor, hunt, and chase the neighbor's cattle out of his fields with his pickup truck. Unfortunately his hunting was cut short as his wife made pets of everything in the woods, especially the deer. Having a great sense of humor, which he passed on to his family, he took this disappointment in stride and even took to feeding raccoons for a while. That hobby ended when the mouths grew to dozens and they sought living quarters where they ought not.
Steve loved the Lord and God's word. He spent many years at First Baptist Church Dallas as a Sunday School teacher, a Sunday School Superintendent, and sung in the adult choir. After moving from the Dallas area he spent many years both in the Gideons, and outside the Gideons handing out the Word of God, The King James Bible, to anyone willing to take it. He was a man frugal in his ways except for tithes and offerings to the Lord and the money he spent on Bibles to place in as many hands as he could. His final church home was Saint Jo Landmark Missionary Baptist Church in which he had formed many cherishing friendships among the children of God.
Steve is survived by his wife, Carolyn (Brooks) Cone of Muenster daughter, Jeannette and husband, Eddie Chastain of Georgia, son, Darrin Cone of Marysville, Texas, brother, James Cone of Jackson, Mississippi, and sister, Susan and husband, Paul Rhinewalt of Jackson, Mississippi. He was preceded in death by his parents, Thaddeus Scott and Marilyn Leodora (Williams) Cone.
Pallbearers were: Dalton Lyons, Richard Graves, Hank Reed, Eddie Jo Reeves, Johnny Maxwell, Cecil Pitman, and Adam Reed.

Upon graduation from high school, Al attended technical school in Kansas City, Missouri, and, as a computer engineer, began a 40-year career in the fledgling computer industry before his retirement in 1998. He married Margaret (Bicsak) Heim, July 2, 1960. As their family grew to five children, Al and Marge moved around the country as required by his job. They lived in California, New York, Illinois, Oklahoma, and eventually to Texas, where they settled in Grapevine, Texas in 1970. While living in Grapevine he was an active member of Saint Francis Catholic Church for over 28 years.
Upon retiring from University Computing Company in 1998, Al and Marge moved to a farm north of Saint Jo and Muenster, and became members of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, and Al a member of Knights of Columbus Council 1459, in Muenster. He loved the German Catholic community of Muenster, as the town reminded him, of his German Catholic roots in growing up in Kansas. Both Al and Marge loved the fact that many in the community made them "one of their own". As a man of great and quiet faith, and love for his Lord Jesus, Al conveyed this faith through his life every day of his life. He loved his family and his many friends. Before his illness, Al enjoyed playing horseshoes, and was a past Texas state horseshoe champion. He loved to Country and Western with Marge, and was a proficient "beer-can holding" line-dancer. He loved playing cards and dominoes, and taking walks on the land with his beloved dog, "Jake". In earlier, days Al played softball, and enjoyed camping and canoeing with his family. He loved good-old-fashioned, "Germanic" humor as well. Dad, you aren't gone, just sailing, in wait for us, over the horizon. We who are earthbound miss you until we are reunited in Heaven.
Al is survived by his wife of 55 years, Margaret Heim of Saint Jo; daughters, Susan and husband Denis Moody, Saint Jo, Lisa Wilderspin, Grapevine, Amy and husband Don Early, Bedford, and Jennifer Heim and spouse Tina Capps, Grapevine; grandchildren Christopher and Eryn Moody, Zeke and Zoe Wilderspin, Jaxon Heim-Capps, Cira and Lincoln Early; sisters Millie and husband Jerry Green, and Lorene Reinert; brother, Ray and wife Annie Heim; brother-in-law Allan Halle; and many nieces and nephews and their children, who will sorely miss "Uncle Bud" at the annual Heim reunions. Al was preceded in death by his parents John and Margaret; brothers Father Cornelius, Julius, and Edwin; sisters Leona, Lillian, Irene, and Bernice; and by his only son Daniel David Heim.

Mindy will be remembered as a sweet kind soul that gave a lot of love and only wanted to be showed love back. She will be greatly missed by many.
She attended elementary through Jr. High at Saint Jo then high school graduating with the Class of 1998 Rains High School in Emory, TX. She finished Greenville Beauty School but never got her license due to family illnesses.
She loved photography and scrapbooking. She looked forward to the Rains County Fair photography contest for many years always winning blue ribbons. She also loved giving and sending cards to others for all occasions, making flower arrangements, getting tea from the DQ, finding new recipes and trying to cook, and to go swimming. Her favorite time was Christmas and then Halloween. She loved scary movies and watching them with her nieces and nephews she loved so dearly. They were her life.
She loved music. Her motto song was "Living on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi. She loved animals, especially her trusty companion of 6 years, her Maltese named Rusty Buttons. When she lost her only child she could ever have, a son, Jessie James Brimer, he became her world, her little BooBoo. With her severe hearing loss he was her watch dog and protector.
Having had kidney illness with a transplant in 1989 that she maintained for 20 years and being back on dialysis for the last 6 years while being on the transplant list for 4 years she was a big supporter of the National Kidney Foundation, Kidney Fund, and organ donation supporter for several organizations.
Most important was her belief in Angels, spirits, and her faith in God. She was a Christian and baptized at Lake Fork Baptist Church near Emory. She struggled from her first breath until her last but never lost the faith that God would make it better soon and that he had a reason for all he does. Even losing her only child she came to understand it was his plan.
She now knows no pain, no medications, no heartbreak or tears, no loneliness, or everyday struggles. Her angels came for her just as she said. She is now with her son and other loved ones she missed so dearly. She told her parents on Christmas Day she would be always be around when she was gone by visiting as a red bird or a golden butterfly.
Rest in peace our dear sweet Mindy. You will be greatly missed but we will see you again one day.
