Sheryl Ann Jarosch of Plymouth entered eternal life Thursday evening March 31, 2016, following a courageous battle with gallbladder cancer.

Sheryl was born in Ogden, Iowa on July 22, 1942 to Lyle and Anna (Kolbe) Marlow and grew up on their family farm in Boxholm, Iowa where she attended Grand Community High School.

She developed a love for nursing while working at a nursing home during her summers while in high school and graduated from Evangelical Hospital School of Nursing with a diploma in nursing. She then graduated from the University of Iowa with a bachelor’s degree in Nursing and from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee with a Master’s Degree. It was at the University of Iowa that she was inducted into Sigma Theta Tau, the National Honor Society in nursing and it was there that she met her beloved husband Richard.

Sheryl worked as a registered nurse at the University of Iowa Hospitals, as an instructor in nursing at Columbia Hospital School of Nursing in Milwaukee for 2 years and Lakeshore Technical College in Cleveland, Wisconsin for 37 1/2 years.

She was honored to work with wonderful co-workers and students during this time and she continued to stay in touch with many of them as good friends. Following retirement, Sheryl worked part time as part of the “family” of the Road America Medical Team. Her experience with the medical team was joyful and rewarding.

Family was her first love. Sheryl and Richard were united in marriage in Boxholm, IA on June 19, 1965 and celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this past summer. Sheryl and Richard were blessed with two children, Janis and David, who were the center of their lives.

They lived in Sheboygan until 1974 when they moved to rural Plymouth. She participated in her children’s activities including Camp Fire leader for many years, PTA and numerous other activities. As a family, they enjoyed traveling throughout the United States and spending time together. She cherished the time she had with her family.

Sheryl was a member of Bethany Reformed

Church while living in Sheboygan and initiated the development of the South Side Children’s Center at the church in 1970.

Her family joined Salem United Church of Christ when they moved to Plymouth. She was active in many church activities including the church picnic, teaching Sunday School for 31 years, parish nursing, and was on numerous church committees.

She and her husband coordinated the church’s annual rummage sale with the help of 100 amazing volunteers. She also volunteered for the Plymouth Food Pantry, Mental Health Association, Christian Radio and Red Cross Blood Drives. Her hobbies included gardening (she started most of her own plants), traveling including cruises, golfing, fishing, and playing cards and games with family and friends.

Sheryl is survived by her loving husband Richard and children: Janis Jarosch of Sheboygan Falls, David Jarosch of Phoenix, Arizona; her sister: Joan Acela of Winterset, Iowa; brothers: Stan (Linda) Marlow of Center Point, Iowa, Jerry (Kay) Marlow of Ankeny, Iowa, and Cedric Marlow of Boxholm, Iowa. She is also survived by a niece: Allison (Kirk) Nabor of Des Moines; and nephews: Aaron (Heidi) Acela of Des Moines, Paul (Theresa) Marlow of Cedar Rapids and Pat Marlow of Rolla, Missouri.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
