Marieta Roth Obituary

Marieta Mary Roth, the 6th child born to Harry and Velma (Miller) Roth, on January 2nd, 1941, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on September 6th, 2023, at the age of 82. Marieta was baptized at East Fairview Mennonite Church on January 24th, 1954, where she was a lifelong faithful member.

Marieta grew up on a farm south of Milford, Nebraska, and she attended Country School District #92.

 As a young lady, Marieta worked at Formfit in Crete and later became a Certified Nurse’s Assistant. She spent her career working at Anna Sunderman Home in Seward, NE. After retirement she worked at Crestview Care Center and Sunrise Country Manor both in Milford, NE. She was a very caring and loving caregiver for ‘her’ residents in the nursing homes. At home she was always the quiet one, in the background showing her love to family by meeting needs that needed to be done and even ones that didn’t need to be done, going above and beyond to show them how much she loved them.

Her hobbies included watching Nebraska Football, shopping, doing word searches and crossword puzzles, volunteering at Etcetera Shop in Seward, playing dominos, and traveling when the opportunity presented itself. Her favorite travel memory was when she was able to go to the Holy Land and walked where Jesus walked.

Survivors include… Brothers Roger (Nancy) Roth, Beaver Crossing, NE; Lonnie Roth, Joseph Roth, and Leonard Roth, all of Milford, NE; Sisters Janice Oswald, Milford, NE; Ila (Larry) Kremer, Congress, AZ; Carolyn Miller, Millersburg, IN; Sharon (Roger) Lehman, Washington Boro, PA; Brother-in-law Cloy and Delores Roth, Cairo, NE; many nieces, nephews, and a host of other relatives and friends.

Marieta was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Velma Roth; her brother & sister-in-law Herbert and Jeanene Roth, her sister, Ora Roth; and brother-in-law’s Larry Miller & Gale Oswald; a niece Audrey Roth, a nephew, Darrel Roth, and a great nephew Henry Benjamin Izeke.
