Dorothy was born January 16, 1928 on the family farm in Granite Rock Township, Minnesota, one of 13 children of John and Mary (Pavek) Dolan. She graduated from Milroy High School, then Glencoe Teachers College, and taught country school in Vesta District 82. Dorothy met and married Roy Rohlik June 21, 1950 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Milroy. The couple had 10 children, 29 grandchildren, and 29 great-grandchildren. Dorothy “Doris” loved her family, her community, and her church. She was a woman of God and His servant on this earth. Dorothy loved baking, making quilts, baseball and watching the Minnesota Twins. She was a lifetime member of the CCW at Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church in Lucan. But most of all, she truly cared about everyone, especially her children, grandchildren, siblings, in-laws, and nieces and nephews. Dorothy will be missed, but we rejoice that she is with the Lord in heaven and reunited with all her loved ones, especially her husband Roy, the love of her life, and her son, Kevin, who died in 1976.
Dorothy is survived by her children: Becky Rohlik, Remi (Darla) Rohlik, Carl (Chris Hess) Rohlik, Diane (Mark) Christensen, Mark (Nancy) Rohlik, Clara (Kevin) Schnyders, Scott (Kathy) Rohlik, Stan (Wendy) Rohlik, and Sherri (Don) Rose; 29 grandchildren; 29 great-grandchildren; and many other relatives and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents, husband Roy, son Kevin, four sisters, and five brothers.
