The angels came down and escorted our sweet Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother to Heaven where she was embraced by her loving family and eternal Father. Metzell Schroll’s final journey began on June 6, 2018 at 8:30 p.m. She would have been 90 years old in July.
We will miss Mom’s giving spirit, devotion to her family and her ever present faith in God. A lifelong Methodist, Mom was very active in Morton United Methodist Church in Morton, Illinois; Seaside United Methodist Church in Sunset Beach, North Carolina; and most recently a member of Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas. Mom and Dad helped to launch the COR livestream services at Silvercrest Retirement Community, one of the many ministry areas they shared over the 50 years of their married life. Mom and Dad’s devotion to one another was a gift they daily gave to each other. And now after four years, Mom has finally joined Dad and most assuredly is making his favorite roast beef dinner.
Those Mom loved with all her heart include daughter, Donna Ackerman and husband Dave; son Jeffrey Schroll; four grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Dave, and son, Steve.
Mom’s gift of servanthood began at a very early age and continued on as she began her career as a nurse for the next 50 years. Her motto was “do your work so well that no one can do it better!” From operating room supervisor to staff parish nurse at churches she served, Mom lived her life ministering to others.
Our family wishes to thank all of the loving care Mom received from Silvercrest Assisted Living Community and most recently, from the nurses at Catholic Community Hospice. Should a memorial contribution be a way to remember and support Mom in her new journey, you can join us in supporting Catholic Community Hospice.
A private gathering of family to remember and celebrate Mom’s life will be held on her 90th birthday, July 21st. A final celebration will be in North Carolina for family and friends before we spread Mom and Dad’s ashes.
