Carley J Roth | Seward independent

Carley June Roth was born on a farm near Milford on July 27, 1941 to Lawrence and Bernice (Klopfenstein) Hauder. Carley died in Lincoln on July 12, 2022 at the age of 80.

From an early age, Carley accepted Christ as her personal Savior. Carley attended country school before transferring to Milford High School. On September 16, 1962, she was married to Norman M. Roth of Beaver Crossing. They lived in Denver, Colorado for the first two years of their marriage and then returned to Beaver Crossing to start their own farming business. Norman and Carley were blessed with three children and their spouses, five grandchildren and one great-granddaughter with another great-grandchild expected in December 2022. Carley was a member of Milford Mennonite Church, where she attended until she moved to Lincoln four years ago. She attended Lincoln Berean Church. She enjoyed country life, gardening – especially her flower garden, playing the piano for church and sewing. Carley made children’s quilts for MCC sales and volunteered at the Et-Cetera Gift Shop in Seward for 20 years.
