Alma M. Rowell

Alma M. Rowell, 95, Abrams, died suddenly Friday, Sept. 6, 2019, at home while doing something she enjoyed, working out in her yard. Her parents immigrated to the United States from Poland in 1904. Alma was born Dec. 17, 1923, in Abrams on the family farm to John and Walney (Rozinski) Jendrzejak. She grew up on the family farm and attended Knowles Elementary School in Abrams.

On Feb. 14, 1942, she married Harvey C. Rowell. The couple lived in Abrams all of their married lives where they owned and operated a family farm and raised seven children. Alma always liked being around children as well as caring and cooking for her large family. She was a 4-H leader when her children were young and volunteered as a children’s leader for the Farmers Union. Alma liked picking all kinds of berries, which she put to good use with her good cooking skills. While it was still operating, she belonged to the Abrams United Methodist Church.

Survivors are her six children, Edward Rowell, Green Bay; Carolyn Kittredge and friend Carl, Lena; Rita (Jim) Gatz, David (Debbie) Rowell, Michael (Lori) Rowell, Vickie (Richard) Jaeger, all of Abrams; 20 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild; nieces and nephews.
