WARREN, Ohio (MyValleyTribtues) – Roselynn Carol Imke, 77 of Warren, Ohio, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, April 7, 2022, after an extended illness.
Roselynn was born on December 21, 1944, in East Cleveland, Ohio, the daughter of the late Carl and Cora Yochum Imke.
Roselynn was a retired school teacher having taught third and fourth grade for 34 years at Leroy Elementary in Painesville, Ohio, a profession she truly loved. When not teaching school and after her retirement, Roselynn was an avid antique collector and antique dealer.
Roselynn was a very loving, caring, compassionate, generous and kind person. She will be sadly missed by many.
God gifted Roselynn with the ability to offer encouragement to all who she encountered and she possessed a servant’s heart that was always on display as she helped others. She loved rides in the country, nature, Bible studies, church services, animals, needlepoint, classical music and history. In her younger days she loved to travel around in her Karmann Ghia to visit relatives in Indiana. She was also a 40-year member of the New Connecticut Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and was related to the Revolutionary War soldier Ebenezer Paddock.
Roselynn lived by God’s word in scripture first Thessalonians: “Still, therefore encourage one another and build each other up”. That was Roselynn’s creed and she was wonderful at encouraging others and lifting them up.
Roselynn was preceded in death by her parents and more recently, by her brother and best friend, William C. Imke.
Roselynn is survived by an extended family of cousins, including Mike (Tresy) Trump, Rhonda Yochum Schellenberger, Bill and Carol Jones, Jean Alcala, Diane Darr; good friends, Trent and Joann Norris, Patrick K. Wilson and her dear friend, Jeff Bralich, who cared for Roselynn up to the very end.
