Pauline was born September 16, 1927, near Shields, ND, to Louie and Aurora (Ternes) Koch. She grew up on the family farm and attended school in Carson, graduating from Carson High School in 1944. On October 6, 1949, Pauline married the love of her life, Joseph Roll, at St. Gertrude’s Catholic Church near Raleigh. The two made their home in Carson for a short while before moving to the farm south of Heil. Together they raised their family of 21 children.

Pauline loved spending time in her garden and tending to her beautiful flowers. She also enjoyed knitting, crocheting doilies, and sewing which included most of her children’s clothing. She also enjoyed cooking and baking for her family and friends. Everyone was invited to Pauline’s table because “what’s one more?”. The holidays and family gatherings were a special time for her and her family. Pauline was a devout Catholic her entire life, prayer and the Rosary were of such importance to her life. She was given the key to the church because everyone knew she could be relied upon to be there.

Pauline is survived by her children, Claudia Ostermiller, Theresa Metz, Loretta (Jim) Schumacher, Joseph Jr. (Norma) Roll, Shirley (Ray) Schutt, Maynard (Donna) Roll, Linda Johnson, Evangeline Roll-Tebeau, Della Ficek, Janice Hansen, Beverly Winkler, Dorothy Klopfer, Nicky (Lorna) Roll, Roger Roll, Bradley Roll, Duane (Karen) Roll, and Madonna Walden; 98 grand and great-grandchildren; sisters, Magdalena Deichert, Rufina Stegmiller, Cecilia (Herman) Gustin, Angelita Schafer, Peggy Weber, and Daisy Heinrich; brothers, Pius (Jeanette) Koch and Richard Koch; sister-in-law, Irene (Duane) Hellman; and brother-in-law, Phillip Roll.

Pauline was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Joseph in 2008; children, Hildegaard, Mark, Maevonne, and David; two grandchildren, Chastity Morris and Jennifer Schumacher; brothers, Lawrence, Steven, Niklous, Blaise, and Louie; sisters, Genevieve Tishmack, Mary Lou Bohn, Letvena Koch, infant sister, Letvina Koch, Fanny Deichert, and Agnes Friesz.
