Rose Marie Slaugenhaupt
Born on January 11, 1929, in the Pine City area of Elk Township, she was the daughter of the late Martin A. and Rachel (Zagst) Beichner. There were eight sons and nine daughters in the Beichner family. Rose attended the Collhepp School, a one-room schoolhouse in the Pine City area. In 1947, she married Willard L. Slaugenhaupt. He preceded her in death in August 2001.
Rose was a member of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She was dedicated to her faith and drew great strength from it.
Rose was devoted to her family; her face lit up and her eyes shone a brighter shade of blue when her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren walked into the room. She was known for her beautiful smile and she shared that smile and positive outlook on living with those around her. She would do whatever she could to help those in need. Rose enjoyed crocheting, knitting and sewing and sharing the fruits of those talents with others. She cherished time in her flower garden, tending to the wildflowers, especially the daisies.
Rose is survived by her children, sons Michael L. Slaugenhaupt (Mary) of Knox, and Dan R. Slaugenhaupt (Eileen Wildern) of Michigan, and her daughter Robin M. Schill (David Hunter) of Knox; her five grandchildren, Jackie Renee Slaugenhaupt, Michael Blake Slaugenhaupt, Brian John Schill, Lori Lynn Likens (Christopher E.) and Billy Slaugenhaupt; and her 5 great-grandchildren, Zachary, Alec, Nathan, Korbin and Brian Tyler; along with a daughter-in-law, Mary Louise Slaugenhaupt of Kentucky.
In addition, she is survived by her siblings, brothers Cletus N. Beichner of Pleasantville, and Dennis A. Beichner of North Carolina; sisters Cecilia M. Daugherty of Brookville, Theresa A. Galbraith of Reynoldsville, Elizabeth A. Slike of Shippenville, Dorothy L. McGiffin of Knox, and Barbara J. Baughman of Millerstown; along with numerous nieces, nephews, and a large extended family.
Rose was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; two sons, William L. Slaugenhaupt and Ted E. Slaugenhaupt; and nine of her siblings, brothers Bernard, Gerald, Edward, Martin Jr., Steven, and Philip Beichner; and sisters, Agnes Winger, Adeline Wolbert, and Mary Baughman.
