Mary Josephine Roholt was born November 6th, 1928 to Fred and Clara (Bye) Enger on the family farm in rural Hatton, ND.


After high school graduation in 1946, Mary began working at the old Union Hospital in Mayville, ND.  She later met H.C. Bill Roholt and they married in 1951.Together they had 2 sons.


In 1968 they moved to Fargo, ND and she worked at the Fargo Nursing Home.  In 1971 they returned to Mayville and she worked for a few more years at the hospital while raising a family.


They divided their time between Mayville, the lake, and eventually Arizona.


In 2021 she moved to Fargo and remained there until some health issues brought her back to Mayville for the remainder of her life. She passed peacefully May 19th.


Mary is survived by her 2 sons William and Michael, Mayville; 2 grandchildren Jesse and Nikki, Arizona; 2 sisters Monica Anderson, Mayville; and Donna Gramstad, St. Paul, several nieces and nephews, and many close friends.


She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, 3 brothers, Douglas, Clark and Fred Enger Jr., one sister, Dorothy Enger, 4 sisters-in-law, 2 brothers-in-law, 5 nephews and 1 niece.


Mary was an outgoing person who enjoyed people, her daily walks and meditation, going to church, entertaining, her bridge clubs, knitting, golfing (especially in the winter), the holidays wherever they were, and entertaining the grandchildren in Arizona while they were growing up.


Special thanks to all those who helped care for her the last couple years, she thoroughly appreciated everything. Blessed be the memory of Mary J. Roholt
