Carol Rohrig was born in Lincoln, Nebraska to Charles and Helen Borner. She graduated from Lincoln High School in 1956. Carol married Bernard “Bernie” Rohrig of Friend, Nebraska on August 29, 1964, and were married until he passed on April 18, 2000. They had five boys: Douglas, Steven, Jeff, James, and John.
Carol had a very strong faith and Christian values that she obtained from her lifelong Lutheran upbringing. Her home church was Friedens Lutheran Church in Lincoln, Nebraska where she was baptized, confirmed, and married. Carol then became a 40-year member of the Lutheran Church of the Master, starting in 1981. She taught Sunday School for 15 plus years. Carol really enjoyed attending services, church functions, and her friends from church.
Carol enjoyed shopping, traveling, Husker football games, and decorating her house for every holiday. She was also the owner of Déjá vu Consignment Store from 1982 – 2005. After retiring in 2005, she volunteered at the Assistance League.
Carol made many moves before settling into the same West Omaha home for 25 years. She then moved into a condo for 12 years before moving to Elk Ridge Assisted Living Facility in July 2018.
To all the Rohrigs….So sorry to read about your Mom, Carol, passing away. You may not remember but we are the Silvermans that bought your house on Morrison Drive about 45 years ago. We still live here. Jamie, I believe that you went to school with our daughter, Ann. I would see your Mom periodically and she was always such a kind woman. May she rest in peace.
