Lorraine Frances Roller

Lorraine Frances Roller was born Lorraine Dvorak to Joseph and Loretta Dvorak of Minneapolis on September 28, 1922. She graduated from Holy Angels Academy and went on to the University of Minnesota for one year before enlisting in the United States Marine Corps and serving her country in World War Two. Following her honorable discharge she then attended Ray Vogue School of Design in Chicago. After graduation she was employed by Trans World Airlines working with a select group of women that TWA called the “Mary Gordon” program. The women traveled the world acting as fashion and travel advisors and encouraged other women to be independent and travel the world as well. While working for TWA she met the love of her life, John Thomas Roller. They were married and settled down first in Chicago and later in Elmhurst. The couple had two children, Janet and John. Although Lorraine was a homemaker for a number of years she eventually returned to work first with Arcade Travel Agency and later for Lord and Taylor where she remained for many years until her retirement. She is survived by her daughter, Janet and three grandchildren John, Matthew and Margaret. Funeral and Interment Services are being planned for later this year. Arrangements handled by Gibbons Funeral Home, Elmhurst. 630-832-0018 or www.gibbonsfuneralhome.com

    Oh Janet—I remember your mom! My mom just passed yesterday and I was checking to see if the obituary was up and saw your mom’s. Much love to you.

  2. Janet Roller Schmidt says:

    I am so sorry for your loss Tekki! This was truly a surprise as I was just checking my moms obituary. You are truly a voice from the past! I do hope you are well. I would love to see you if you are in the area. I remember your mom very fondly. She was a great lady! I hope this reaches you- I am just learning my way around the website as we waited for services until my sons could join us. One on active duty and one in DC. They will both be here next week. Love to you and your family. My cell # is 630-939-4888
