Daily Democrat, Clinton MO, Oct 15 2004 - On October 7, 2004, the Feast of Our
Lady of the Rosary, Leroy Lawrence Brownsberger began to sing his Ave Maria in
Heaven. He is mourned by Dorothy Jean (Duewel) to whom his first words were "I
won't let you fall." Through 63 years of marriage, he bore out these words by
unwavering fidelity, heartfelt love and intimate devotion. His brother Martin,
still living on the farm in Germantown where Leroy was born on September 1,
1917, is witness to Leroy's impeccable honesty and exemplary work ethic. His
children, Marsha and Walt, have had in their father a vivid reflection of god's
own paternal love for them. Edie, Brenda, John, Bill, Donna and Nick have been
profoundly marked by their grandpa's life. By his self-sacrifice, they have been
given many opportunities in life. In his example, they have seen how life should
be lived. Leroy is also survived by his great-grandchildren, Jon, Nicole,
Madeline, Joseph, Noah, Marcello, Mariella and as-yet unnamed Dodson. Having
lost his own father at the age of six, Leroy, the youngest of nine children,
overcame drought and the Depression to succeed beyond expectation in farming. He
considered himself blessed to have spent his life on the land that he owned and
loved. All who have known him will miss his twinkling blue eyes and his witty
asides. Funeral services were held at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church,
Montrose, Monday, October 11. Burial was in St. Mary's Cemetery, Montrose.
