Rosemary Stolleis, 89, a resident of The Good Samaritan Society Lake Forest Village in Denton, Texas entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, June 5, 2019. Rosemary was born in Bonham, Texas on Sept. 4, 1929 to the late Wilbur and Ethel Dearing (nee Compton).
She is survived by her children: W. Alan Stolleis of Dallas; Sherri Stolleis of Moulton; Karl A. Stolleis of Placitas, New Mexico; sister Linda Dearing Epperson of Garland and several nieces and nephews. Her husband Walter Adolph Stolleis; brothers Rogers and Morton Dearing and sister Lorraine proceeded her in death.
She graduated from Rice University in 1954 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. Living in Houston, she worked at First United Methodist Church as a secretary and met her husband.
In 1972, the family moved to Cuero, Texas, which she called home for 41 years. During those years, she was an active member at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Lindenau. She worked as a bookkeeper for Weber Insurance Agency and later Weber Motor Company. Upon retirement, she continued to enjoy sewing, knitting, crocheting and reading. In July 2013, after a short illness in Cuero, she became a resident at Lake Forest Village in Denton, Texas. She always said how welcomed she felt by other residents and how the Lake Forest staff always took great care of her.
The family asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the American Heart Society in her name.
