PERRYVILLE, Mo. -- Ada Amelia Trapp, 79, died early Sunday morning July 19, 2009, at the Independence Care Center in Perryville.

After a several-year journey with Parkinson's disease and dementia, her spirit was released to the Lord. May she live the everlasting life in heaven which has been prepared for her.

Trapp was born June 18, 1930, to William Schnurbusch and Emma (Zoellner) of Apple Creek, Mo. Baptized and educated in the parish of St. Joseph of Apple Creek, she lived a life of grace in the faith of the Catholic Church and loved its devotional prayer.

She was a much loved and devoted wife, mother and homemaker. Those who had the privilege of knowing her and caring for her always spoke of her personal beauty.

During her life Trapp sang in the parish choir at St. Joseph Church, loved to sew, cook and provide the best for her family. She had enjoyed bowling, cleaning, manicuring, travel for music concerts and sightseeing.

She married Waldemar Trapp on Sept. 16, 1950. They raised three children, Kathy (Moll) and Ken, who are twins and reside with their families in Perryville, and Lynn, who resides in Minneapolis. In addition to Trapp's husband and children, survivors are five grandchildren, Tiffany, Dustin and Ryan Moll, Melissa and Brandon Trapp; two great-grandchildren (Devon Kutz and Kaitlyn Moll, both children of Dustin Moll); and brother Harold Schnurbusch of Cape Girardeau.

Trapp was preceded in death by her parents; and brothers Earl and Glennon; and a sister, Beaulah (Winkler).

Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Gathering Space at St. Vincent de Paul Church in Perryville.

The Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated with song at 7 p.m., with the Rev. Milton Ryan, CM, officiating.
