Roscoe Adolph Corell
July 29, 1924 – December 1, 2020
Roscoe was a WWII Army veteran of the Asian Pacific theater, a retired Civil Engineer with the US Army Corps of Engineers, and a devout Catholic; he dedicated his time to several volunteer groups and in service to helping others. In addition to spending time with his family and watching Nebraska and North Dakota Bison football games, Roscoe loved working with the American Legion Post #1 in Omaha, listening to live bluegrass music, traveling with his Airstream trailer, and spending time with his many friends and activities at St. Robert Bellarmine Parish, in Omaha, NE.
Rosco was preceded in death by his wife, Charlotte A Corell; sons, Roscoe S. Corell and Ronald S. Corell, and Ronald’s child, Christopher Corell. He is survived by his sons, Raymond and Royce, and daughter, Rita, all of Omaha; seven grandchildren; fourteen great-grandchildren; and seven great-great grandchildren, as well as several nieces and nephews scattered across the country.
The family wishes to thank all of the doctors and medical staff who provided such skilled and loving care for Roscoe over this past year at Bergan Mercy Hospital. A special thank you also to the Rose Blumkin Jewish Home in Omaha. Having our father come to stay with you was the best gift that we could give him. The look on his face when you came to take him back after our window visits told us you treated him like family. We had to put our entire trust of his care in your hands with the pandemic, and you did a beautiful job. Thank you.
