Theda E. Rolerson

1925 – 2018

AUBURN – Theda E. Rolerson, 92, passed peacefully in her sleep on Oct. 21, 2018 at her home with family by her side.

Theda was born in Auburn on Oct. 25, 1925, the  daughter of Grover and Lillian (Holmes) Rolerson.  Theda graduated from Edward Little High School in 1943.

Theda spent her early years of marriage in Lynn and Swampscott, Mass. In 1960 she moved to Robbinston, Maine, where she and her family operated a general store and animal farm.

For the past 37 years Theda has lived in her home town of Auburn.  She enjoyed being an R.A. for St. Mary’s School of nursing.  She enjoyed bird watching and creating habitat by planting trees and shrubs on her suburban property.

She is survived by sister, Marjorie Arnold; daughter, Jane Brooks, and her husband, Kenneth; sons, Kimmel, Karl, and Dan Webster, and Dan’s wife, Tracy; grandchildren, Emily, Allison, Matthew, Hayley, Stefan, and Justin; nine great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. Theda especially appreciated visits and Christmas cookies from niece Kathy Fyfe.

Theda’s family extends heartfelt thanks to Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice and Elite Homecare caregivers for their exceptional care of Theda and help they provided to the family.

A celebration of life will be held at Park Avenue United Methodist Church, 439 Park Avenue, Auburn, on Nov. 13 at 1 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
