Ella Roth was born on Thursday, March 9, 1922 to Emanuel and Amelia (Buchholz) Wormsbecher on the family farm near Avon, South Dakota. On June 7, 1942, Ella was united in marriage to Walter Roth at Emmaus Lutheran Church in Tripp. Together they made their home nine miles southwest of Tripp where Walter would farm his entire life. Ella was baptized on May 16, 1948 at Emmaus Lutheran Church, where they would be lifelong members.
Ella was a hard-worker, who took great pride in fulfilling her duties as a farmwife, housewife, and mother. She was neat and tidy, a perfectionist in her household work that was seen in her quilting, patching, and bright whites. She loved quilting, embroidery, and crocheting and also enjoyed bingo.
Ella passed away on Thursday, February 12, 2015 at Avera Bormann Manor in Parkston having attained the age of 92 years, 11 months, and 3 days.
She is survived and remembered by her three children: Marcine (Allen) Schoenfish of Menno, LeRoy (Judy) Roth of Tripp, and Myron (Diane) Roth of Tea; seven grandchildren: Ann (Justin) Verba, Scott (Terah) Schoenfish, Sherri Schoenfish, Steven Schoenfish, Ryan (Amanda) Roth, Fawn (Chris) Vogt, and Cody (Angie) Roth; fourteen great-grandchildren; and brother Harvey Wormsbecher of Tripp.
She was preceded in death by her husband Walter Roth in 2013, her parents, two brothers: Clarence and Elmer, and six sisters: Esther, Lillian, Hulda, Lorraine, Ruth, and Julia.
Any undesignated gifts of memorial funds will be directed to the American Diabetes Association.
