Rose Trinklein - Obituary


December 6, 2017

Rose Marie Robinson Trinklein, 92, left us on 12-3-17 at Good Samaritan Village in Loveland, CO.

Rose, and her twin sister, Rita, were born on June 11, 1925 in Oshkosh, NE. After graduation from Garden County High School she and Rita embarked on a lifetime of shared adventures.

They sang with the USO in South Carolina during the war, taught school in Garden County, and visited many places over the years including Mexico, Europe, Israel and Africa. To celebrate their 70th birthday they took a 7-day hiking trip to the islands of Hawaii.

She married Don Robinson on June 1, 1947 and they spent many years in Sidney, NE where Don had an accounting firm, Bond and Robinson. Rose worked in the County Treasurer's Office and they were active members of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. They were involved in the community and spent many summers at the lakes boating, fishing and water skiing.

After Don's death in 1982, she travelled extensively with Rita and her husband , Harry, in their motor home. They spent several months each winter at Happy Wanderer in Indio, CA. While there she met Don Trinklein and they married in 2002.

Don and Rose moved to Good Samaritan in Loveland in November 2006, where she has lived since. She loved spending time outdoors, reading, working crosswords and encouraging her many friends to stay active and involved in life.

Rose was preceded in death by nine brothers and sisters, her husbands, several nieces and nephews and a grandson. She is survived by her twins, Merrie Wicks (and husband Byron) and Mick Robinson; grandson, Jeff Wicks and great-grandchildren, Bryce and Charlotte Wicks.

Memorial services will be held at 10:30 AM, Friday, December 8, 2017 at Good Samaritan Village Chapel, 2101 S. Garfield, Loveland Colorado.
