Aschliman, Rosa Mae Short

Rosa Mae Aschliman was born July 20, 1903 at Stryker, Ohio. On Dec. 25, 1924, she was married to Rev. Freeman Aschliman, who preceded her in death. To this marriage was born one daughter, Mrs. Colene Rich, Toledo, Ohio.
    Other family left to mourn her passing are: two sisters, Miss Martha Short, Toledo, Ohio, who shared a home with Rosa, and Mrs. Elizabeth Short, Archbold, Ohio; one brother, Mr. Maurice Short, West Unity, Ohio; one son-in-law, Mr. Willie O. Rich, Toledo, Ohio and three grandchildren, Sara, Rachel and Mark, Rich.
    Following their marriage, Freeman and Rosa lived on a farm until her husband came to Toledo to found a church which later became the Bancroft Mennonite Church. They happily
served that church until the untimely death of Freeman in March of 1967.
    After Freeman's death, Rosa continued her teaching until retirement just eight years ago.
Even after retiring, she continued her substituting in selected schools in Toledo until a year ago.
    Rosa departed this life in Toledo Hospital on Jan. 19, 1982, following a short illness.

    Good Night, Mother Mine
Life is so wonderful, life such as thine;
Death cannot end it, dear mother of mine!
Morning will come again gilding the trees,
Spring notes will sound again sweet on the breeze!

This is not dying, my brave mother dear,
Thou art but climbing up out of the Here,
Out of the struggles and out of thy pain,
Out wherewith Christ life will flower again.

So, then, good night, mother only good night,
Turn thy dear face to the mansions of light.
Life is so wonderful, life such as thine; 
Death cannot end it! Good night, mother mine!
