1920-2014

Rosalia Zuehl passed away Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014. She was born May 7, 1920, to John and Lucy (Wyrwich) Dylla in St. Hedwig, Texas.

Her name was Rosalia. Dad called her Rose; her children called her Mom, and she was also Starka, Grandma, and Great-grandma. Other family members called her Aunt Lily or Aunt Lillian. Mom was a beautiful lady, and like the flowers she enjoyed, brought beauty and happiness to her surroundings. Born and reared in St. Hedwig, there was little she did not know about when it came to farming, ranching, and country life. She was also a hunter and fisherwoman. When it came to gardening, Mom had a green thumb for anything she touched. Growing up during the Depression, the word “waste” was not in her vocabulary. Dancing, accordion, and harmonica brought her a lot of joy and she still played her harmonica up to the age of 91 years. She loved to share memories of her and Dad’s wedding day -- the all-day and night celebration at Lubianski’s Dance Hall and their Grand March and Julius Dietrich and his German Band. As a military wife, she enjoyed the different locations she was able to experience, from the Pacific to Europe and in between. Mostly Mom enjoyed her children and being the absolute “best mom” we were fortunate to have. In her later years, she would say, “The world is changing too quickly and people everywhere seem to be in too much of a hurry; everyone needs to enjoy life.” She always looked forward to receiving mail; ... not email but U.S.P.O. mail ... sitting down and reading it -- like the newspaper. If you were celebrating any type of special day, you could expect a card or letter. Shopping was always an adventure and she could really stretch the dollars looking for quality at a good price. Her favorite stores through the years were Joske’s, Dillards, JC Penney, and Sears (depending on what she needed), and of course H-E-B. The clerks got to know her and she got to know them. Mom was a woman of many talents, two of which were an accomplished seamstress and needleworker (embroidery and smocking). She could sew an item with or without a pattern or just by using a photo. Cooking and baking came naturally ... a great cook never really following recipes and making up her own. Polish Goulash, homemade bread, egg noodles, fried chicken, lemon pie, peach cobbler, potato salad, rice pudding (everyone wanted the recipe), mayonnaise cake, jams and jellies. We couldn’t wait to sneak a taste or wipe the bowls, pots, and pans clean. Sometimes there would be a little tiff over the remaining leftover meringue on beaters and spoons. She enjoyed nature -- trees, animals, and bird watching -- her yard was their haven. Rosalia was a member and former Chaplain of VFW Auxiliary Post 4815 (San Antonio) and American Legion Auxiliary Post 245 (Seguin). A devout Catholic, she was a member of St. Lawrence Catholic Church.

Much gratitude to granddaughters Autumn and Ryan for their support and the following: Dr. Nick Shannon and staff; Dr. Jude Espinoza; Dr. Stephen Reich; Nix Home Health-Grace, Elsa, and Megan; the Mission Trails second floor ICU nurses; VITAS Hospice; and the H-E-B pharmacy team at Pleasanton Road and SE Military Drive for many years of courtesy and service.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Henry A. Zuehl; her parents; her granddaughter, Ebony Rose; her sister, Regina Gutz; and brother Anton Dylla.

Rosalia is survived by her daughter, Antoniette Rosalia “Toni” Zuehl Moorhouse; sons Henry J. Zuehl and wife Sydney, Joseph V. Zuehl Sr. and wife Marcela, and James V. Zuehl and wife Darlene; 12 grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

Visitation was held on Friday, Aug. 22, from 5-9 p.m. with a rosary recited at 7 p.m. in the Mission Park Funeral Chapels South in San Antonio. A funeral Mass was celebrated on Saturday at 10 a.m. in the St. Lawrence Catholic Church in San Antonio.

Interment followed in the Mission Burial Park South in San Antonio.
