About Julia Fowler Rorick

Mrs. C.H. Rorick Dead

The Aged Lady Joins the Silent Majority After a Lingering Illness

Mrs. C.H. Rorick, of Oxford Mills, died at her home at that place on Tuesday morning at 10:30 A.M. after a prolonged illness of about three months duration. During that time the lady has been a severe sufferer, and death came to her as a great relief. Her life work is ended, and she joins the silent majority in that prolonged sleep from which no one wakens. Mrs. Rorick had been all that a good woman, a faithful and devoted wife and mother could be. Her family of eight children was her continued pride, and in their welfare and success were centered her highest ambitions. Those who have been nearest her, through life and for whose well being she labored, will not be alone in mourning her loss. Neighbors who have known her for years speak only in words of praise of her life work and, that it is now ended, all regret. She had outlived the allotted "four score years and ten," however, and when her work here on earth was ended, she passed peacefully into the arms of her Savior.

Julia F. Kimball was born in Patterson, New Jersey, October 14, 1831 [sic], and died at Oxford Mills, Iowa, August 27, 1901, aged near eighty years. In 1836, she was married to C.H. Rorick, to which union were born eight children -- G.H. Rorick of Lowden, Iowa; Dave Rorick, of St. Louis, MO; Sam Rorick, of Oklahoma; D.D. Rorick, of this city; Mrs. W.E. [sic] Tyrrell of Belmond, Iowa; S.E. Rorick, of Oxford Mills; Albert Rorick, of Oxford Mills; and Mrs. D.E. Strevelle, of Yorktown, Canada -- all of whom with the exception of G.H. Rorick are living.

In 1858, the family moved to Iowa and located in this vicinity, where they have since resided, Oxford Mills being their residence.
