Addie Groose Obituary

Addie Groose, born September 10, 1925, passed away peacefully at her Jefferson City home on October 10, 2023.  Addie was visited by many friends and neighbors in recent days, a testament to her devotion to her loved ones and the close relationships she had with so many.

Addie was born in Etterville, Missouri to Oliver and Jessie Bacon.  She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Leonard, and siblings Grant, Miller, Kenneth, Leroy, Helen Wilhite, Mary Baucom, Oma Henley, and Daughter-In-Law Lynn Groose.  She married the love of her life, Leonard Groose, on June 18th 1946 and they settled into farm life in Eugene, Mo.

At 98 years of age, Addie lived through some historical times.  She was alive when Amelia Earhart became the first woman to pilot a plane across the Atlantic Ocean.  She survived the Great Depression and talked of how dedicated her parents had been in caring for the family.  She was a young girl when Hitler rose to power and saw World War II as it developed.  She recalled D Day and Pearl Harbor news reports.  The war became personal to her when her brothers were sent overseas and her husband was stationed in Japan.  During the war, Addie did what many women her age did, she worked in a factory.

Addie's long life gave her subject matter for many stories.  We will remember the most joyful manner in which Addie shared stories of her life with others.  Many of these stories were shared with the community women while quilting many beautiful quilts.  Addie was most proud of her contribution to the quilts auctioned off to raise money for children with Cystic Fibrosis.  Her favorite social events included attending family and community fish fry’s and celebrating holidays with her family.

In addition to her biological family, Addie had a large group of friends at her residence who she thought of, and who thought of her, as family.  She was referred to as 'Mom' or 'Grandma' by many of them.  Her presence in the lives of all who knew her was one of unwavering love and devotion that clearly epitomized the ideals of family.  Addie's sons, grandchildren, and great grandchildren would like to extend endless gratitude to her Hyder Resident Family for all of the joy they brought her throughout the years.

Memorials would be greatly appreciated to the Spring Garden Cemetery Fund.

Visitation will be Monday, October 16, 2023 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM at Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church of Mary’s Home, MO with the Funeral Mass beginning at 12:00 PM with Rev. Ignazio Medina officiating.  Burial will follow at Spring Garden Cemetery in Eugene, MO.
