Thank You From Schroll Family

Met Schroll sent the following as a thank you for the cards and words of sympathy on the recent passing of Dave Shroll:

“The angels came down and took (Great) Grandpa to heaven today.” Our beloved 
Great Grandpa, Grandpa, Dad and Husband, Lester David  Schroll died 
peacefully at 5:50am on Sunday, August 24th. He was 85 years old.

We will all miss Dad’s beautiful smile, endearing  personality, and quiet 
but ever present faith in God.  A life-long Methodist, Dad was very active 
in the Morton UMC in Morton, Illinois; Seaside UMC in Sunset Beach, NC and 
most recently a member of Church of the Resurrection, in Leawood, Kansas. He 
and Mom helped launch the COR Livestream church services at Silvercrest 
Retirement Home, one of many ministry areas they shared over their 50 years 
of married life.

Dad and Mom’s devotion to one another was a gift they daily gave to each 
other. Dad was my Mom’s best suez chef, always ready and willing to help out 
with any family meal. Mom returned Dad’s love with her unselfish and 
constant care. She was the best nurse my Dad could ever have, especially 
this last year.

Before retirement Dad was a Farm Accountant. He loved all aspects of outdoor 
life. Favorite activities were golfing, gardening, bird watching, and when 
younger, track and skiing.

Those Dad loved with all his heart include his beloved wife, Metzell 
Schroll, daughter Donna Ackerman,  son Jeffrey Schroll; brother Dean 
Schroll; sister Jeanne Aden; 4 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. He 
was preceded in death by his brother, Don, and son, Steve.

Should a memorial contribution be a way to remember and support Dad in his 
new journey, you can join us in supporting ….Church of Resurrections 
Weekend Back-pack  program for hungry kids who take food home for week-ends.

A private gathering of family and friends to remember and celebrate Dads 
life will be held at a later date.
The Date is September 6th at 1pm.  Ashes will be enturned later.The service 
will be at Silvercrest retirement Home  where they lived.
