Phyllis was born on August 24, 1933 and lived on a farm northwest of Napoleon, ND. That’s where she grew up and learned to milk cows. She decided early on that education was the only way out of the milking parlour. After graduating from Napoleon High School in 1950, she moved to Bismarck to attend St. Alexius School of Nursing. Her teachers were the Benedictine Sisters, who she credits with playing an important role in her love of nursing. She graduated in 1953. She began her nursing career in Bismarck at St. Alexius and during this time she met and married Ervin Roemmich on July 29, 1955. She put her career on hold to raise their family. They moved to Billings and later returned to Bismarck, where Ervin and Phyl started several businesses. She was an active part of these efforts. Phyllis continued to care for their family and eventually returned to nursing. After retiring, she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and volunteering.

Phyllis had high standards of living that she passed on to her family:

By faith all things are possible with God… including going to Mass by snowmobile in a snowstorm.

  • Look for angels all around you.
  • Family Sunday dinners of fried chicken, mashed potatoes and a homemade dessert celebrated special events and scrutinized her daughters’ suitors.
  • Family brings joy to life.
  • Respect your parents. Parents and grandparents need to be loved and cared for, especially as they grow older.
  • Find a career you love and you’ll never have to return to the parlor again. Work hard to take pride in the work you do because it offers both challenges and relationships.
  • Roses, flowers and vegetable gardens are beauty and abundance. Her daughter’s garden was a place where she enjoyed learning this and shrubs can be pruned back to nothing and come back stronger.
  • Dance in the kitchen, be strong and feisty, travel, rearrange the furniture, read a good book and enjoy a cup of coffee: these are the icing on the cake of life

Phyllis is survived by her four children, Kathy (Kevin) Seidel of Bismarck, ND; Bruce Roemmich of Florida; Jane (Lee) Bertsch of Pick City, ND; and Lynn (Glenn) Mitzel of West Fargo, ND. She has four grandchildren, Cole Bertsch of Mandan, ND; Jennifer (Jake) Thorud of McHenry, Ill.; J.D. (Angie) Seidel of Bismarck, ND; and Joslin Seidel of Boca Raton, FL. She has three great-granddaughters, Myla, Rylee and Hadley. She is survived by two sisters and a brother, Marion (Dwayne) Thiel of Bismarck, ND; Sandra (Rick) Harris of Anderson Island, WA; and Bernard Marquart of Napoleon, ND in addition to many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband Ervin and a granddaughter, Lacey Seidel. She was also preceded in death by her parents Bernard and Clementine (Kuhn) Marquart, three sisters and three brothers-in-law Betty (Peter) Sperle; Marjorie (Jesse) Jackson; Janet (Richard) Scholl.
