It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Waltraud 'Wally' Roehrle. After enduring a lengthy struggle with vascular and Parkinson's disease, she peacefully passed away on March 20, 2015 at home surrounded by the love of her family. We are comforted in knowing that she is now at peace.

Wally is survived by her loving husband of 52 years, Josef; three children, daughter, Petra, two sons, Andrew (Erin) and Marc (Mo); and five grandchildren, Kylie, Carter-Catherine, Ethan, Oliver, and Anya, all of whom she adored. She also leaves behind two sisters, still residing in Germany.

Wally was born on February 15, 1940 in Hamburg, Germany. After attending apprentice school, she became a Book Seller and in 1972, Josef, Wally and their three children moved to Hampton. Wally worked part time for the Adult Education Program in Hampton and was an active member of the Willow Oaks Garden Club for over 30 years. She thoroughly enjoyed gardening, the outdoors and was an avid reader. Josef and Wally were traveling companions. Together they shared innumerable adventures on both land and water, traversing America several times and spending over 200 days at sea. Wally was a friend to many, a devoted mother and a loving wife. In addition, we would like to thank Pastor Christine Farrow for her dedicated compassion and support.

Service will be held at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 807 West Mercury Blvd., Hampton on Monday, March 30 at 10:00 a.m.
