Roma H. Roethel, 95, of Sheboygan Falls, passed away on Friday, December 11, 2020, at the Shores of Sheboygan where she has resided for the last four and a half years.
Roma was born on October 15, 1925 to Louis and Emma (Dickman) Boeldt. She married Willard Roethel on June 24, 1944. They were married for 41 years before Willard passed away on August 30, 1985. She attended Holden grade school as well as several other country schools.
Over her lifetime, Roma worked at Richardson Brothers, Bemis Manufacturing, and most recently she worked for Curt Joa in Sheboygan Falls. In addition to these jobs, Roma also baked the desserts for the Cauldron Restaurant.
Roma enjoyed playing sheepshead, playing darts, day trips to Oneida, crafts and ceramics, and crocheting doilies and afghans. She took pride in her cooking and baking skills, and would always have fresh cookies in the cookie jar and candy in the candy dish.
Roma was a member of Grace UCC for many years. She also was a long-time volunteer for the Red Cross.
Roma is survived by her daughters, Nancy Christian and Betty (George) Lorenz; grandchildren, Sheryl (Gregg) Schuessler, David (Trina) Christian, Nicholas (Diane) Roethel, Keith Lorenz (Carrie), Dawn (Brad) Ziegelbauer, and Brenda Lorenz (Brian); great-grandchildren, Jacob Lorenz, Valerie Schuessler, Colton and Braeden Ziegelbauer, Adaline Christian, and Ellie Lorenz; and great-great-grandchild, Onyx Lorenz. She is also survived by her sisters, Clarice Rohde and Joyce Loessl; special nieces and nephew, Jane, Judy, and Ron; and many other nieces and nephews.
Roma was preceded in death by her husband, Willard; son, Gerald (Sonja); son-in-law, Ordell "Ozzie" Christian; brothers, Lester (Rebecca) Boeldt; Raywald Boeldt, Louis Boeldt Jr.; sisters, Norma (Elmer) Schmidt and Mabel (Norbert) Sommer; and brother-in-law, Gerhard (Dorothy) Roethel.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date when it is safer to do so.
The family would like to thank the Shores of Sheboygan for the wonderful care and compassion they showed to Roma. A very special thank you is also extended by the family to Dr. Kuttickat for helping Roma stay healthy through the end of her life.
