Mildred M. “Millie” (Ballweg) Roth
Our Christmas Angel, Mildred M. (Ballweg) Roth, age 82, formerly of Springfield Corners, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Saturday, December 24, 2022, at Homestead Living in Waunakee after battling dementia. She was born on March 19, 1940, in Sauk City, Wisconsin to Norbert and Frances (Ripp) Ballweg. On June 21, 1960, she married Werner Roth in Roxbury, and they shared 61 years together before he passed away on November 16, 2021.
Millie attended elementary school in Roxbury and graduated from Sauk Prairie high school. After high school she worked in the office at Hamilton Supply in Madison. After she and Werner married, she devoted herself to family life. In 1978, she started her own housecleaning business until she retired in 2015. She gained her customers by word of mouth and some of her clients were with her for the entire 37 years! She took great pride in her work and it showed in her own house too.
Millie loved her flower gardens and would often have a fresh bouquet of flowers on the table. She and Werner enjoyed bowling, dining out, playing cards with their friends, and traveling, including trips to Germany, Canada, and various places throughout the United States. Millie also loved her annual Mother’s Day pedicure and lunch with her daughters and making Christmas cookies and candy with them. She was an excellent cook and always had a well-balanced meal on the table. When unexpected visitors showed up, she could throw together a delicious meal in no time. When the kids were in school, she would get up early to make them a special breakfast of pancakes, french toast, or eggs. Other things she enjoyed doing were sewing, crocheting, crossword puzzles, reading magazines, looking through recipes, sitting on the swing with Werner looking out at their many beautiful gardens, and most of all she loved spending time with her family. She was a devoted member of St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church in Martinsville where she was on the Council of Catholic Women and volunteered at many church breakfasts and lunches.
Millie is survived by her children Mike (Helen), Kevin (Jennifer), Bonnie (Dennis) Dohm, Dale (Michelle), Kris (Rob) Ulfig, and Jennifer (Mark) Niesen; grandchildren, Whitney and Matthew Roth, Michael (Ashley) Schmidt, Mikaela and Brianna Roth, Emily and Nick Ulfig, Valerie and Megan Niesen. She is further survived by her siblings, Eunice Valenza, Phyllis Breunig, and Kenny, sister-in-law Karen, and many nieces, nephews, and lifelong friends. She was preceded in death by her parents Norbert and Frances, husband Werner, brother Tom, brothers-in-law John Valenza and Jim Breunig, and son-in-law Mark Schmidt.
