Vervil Roush
1928 - 2019

Vervil (Bill) Roush, 91, passed away peacefully November 10, 2019 at the K C Hospice House. Bill was born April 9, 1928 to Lester and Ruby (Riley) Roush in Siam, IA. Ruby insisted that all 10 of her children graduate from high school. As a senior at Maryville, he caught the eye of freshman Rosemary Shelton. They dated while he installed lightning rods in 24 states. Bill and Rosemary wed on Sept. 23, 1950 and he was drafted into the Army Nov. 28, 1950. Corporal Roush spent two years in Okinawa often being placed on high alert to ship to Korea.
Bill and Rosemary moved to Kansas City where Bill spent his career as a proud UFCW union member with A&P. Together they enjoyed Royals games, parenting and the bliss of being Grandma and Grandpa to Skylar and Logan.
Golfing 5 days a week helped after Rosemary’s death in 1997 as well as attending every event for Skylar and Logan, traveling to 10+ National Parks and 16+ baseball stadiums. Though an accomplished wood craftsman, Bill started painting at age 90. His paintings now are on 3 continents and in many homes.
Bill was a loyal, gentle model for his family. He is preceded in death by his parents, his brother Harold, sisters Laberta and Loraine and his love, Rosemary. Celebrating Bill’s life are his brothers, Charlie (Barbara), Junior (Marjorie), Ed (Donna), Jerry (Fern), Leon (Carolyn) and Deon (Jodee), his brother-in-laws, Billy Shelton (Deloris) and Russell Freemeyer; son Bill (Kay), grandsons Skylar(Fabiola) and Logan, Kay’s sisters’ families, and many nieces, nephews and friends.
We will celebrate his life on Tuesday, Nov. 26 from 3-5 pm at A&G Restaurant, 208 N. Main, Maryville, MO 64468. Private burial. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Harvesters-The Community Food Network at or mail checks to Harvesters-The Community Food Network c/o Check-Out Hunger Food Drive 3801 Topping Ave. KCMO 64129.
