Dwanna F. Trobaugh
Dwanna Faye Struble Trobaugh lost her battle with cancer on Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2022, but joined her beloved mother and daddy and her many family and friends who had passed before her.
Dwanna was born Nov. 2, 1936, in Mauckport, Ind., to James and Faye Singleton Struble.
She began school at Mauckport and was a proud Pilot until the school was closed and students were transferred. She graduated as a member of the Corydon High School class of 1954. That same year she married her high school sweetheart, Cecil Trobaugh, and the two would have celebrated their 68th anniversary on Christmas Day this year. Dwanna worked at Bell Telephone in Louisville and then Eureka Telephone in Corydon. Later, she began working for the firm of Bob Davis, Attorney, and finished her career at O’Bannon, Funk and Simpson doing the research for real estate contracts and deeds until she finally retired. She made many good friends during that time both at the firm and among the people working in the courthouse.
Dwanna was a member of Pfrimmer’s Chapel United Methodist Church where she enjoyed singing alto in the choir. She went on work missions to John’s Island, S.C., over a 30-year period. She taught Sunday school for many years and was an active participant in many other activities with the church. She was one of the earliest members of the Southern Indiana Emmaus Community. She was a member of the Lions Club and was a former member of Tri Kappa Sorority.
Dwanna was preceded in death by her parents; her in-laws, Carl and Harriet Curts Trobaugh; sister-in-law, Phyllis Ferree Struble; and her niece, Monica Struble.
She is survived by her husband; her son, Kevin Trobaugh; daughter, Melissa Trobaugh; grandson, Matthew Key (Gretchen); granddaughter, Carley Chestnut (Clint); and great-granddaughters, Millie and Palmer. She is also survived by her brother, Larry Struble (JoAnn); nephew, Mark Struble (Becky); niece, Marsha Stinnett (Steve); great-nephew, Adam Struble (Taylor); great-niece, Heather Andes (Isaac); and great-great-nephew, Dallas. She is also survived by her sisters-in-law, Norene Minor (Tom) and Karen Matherly, and several nieces, nephews and extended family.
Visitation will be at Gehlbach & Royse Funeral Home in Corydon. Visitation hours are Friday, Aug. 12, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The funeral will be Saturday at 1 p.m. at the funeral home. Burial will be in the Pfrimmer’s Chapel Cemetery near Corydon.
The family is extremely grateful for the cards, caring words, prayers and expressions of support during Dwanna’s illness. As we celebrate her life and the love she gave to this world, the family would like to ask that expressions of sympathy be made to the towns and community that Dwanna loved. She grew up in Mauckport and lived the rest of her life in Corydon (except for a brief time away when Cecil was in the United States Army in Lawton, Okla., and beginning a job in Barbourville, Ky.). The family believes she would like to support programs that will continue to encourage local work. Envelopes will be available at the funeral home or memorial gifts may be sent directly to the Harrison County Community Foundation, P.O. Box 279, Corydon, IN 47112 or to Pfrimmer’s Chapel Cemetery Foundation, in care of Norene Minor, 505 Pfrimmer’s Chapel Road, Corydon, IN 47112 in memory of Dwanna Trobaugh.
