Rosella H. Hornberger, Sunman, was born July 4, 1922, in Batesville, the daughter of Jesse and Alma M. Walter Hoff. She married Clarence Hornberger June 14, 1941, in Harrison, Ohio.
Rosella kept busy as a homemaker and the bookkeeper for Hornberger Plastering. She had many hobbies, including flower and vegetable gardening and canning, but her favorite was bowling. Rosella was part of the "Wednesday Afternoon Housewives" bowling league in Batesville - even later in life she spoke fondly of bowling and how she wanted to get back to it. Rosella was a member of St. Jacob's UCC and played the organ there many years. She was also a member of the St. Leon Legion Ladies Auxiliary. On Tuesday, July 25, 2017, at the age of 95, Rosella passed away at Margaret Mary Health, Batesville.

Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Clarence, and one sister, Betty Jobst.
