HARTFORD, Kan. – Cynthia Jane Roller, 73, passed away Friday, Sept. 25, 2020, at Stormont-Vail Hospital, Topeka, Kan. She was born Aug. 8, 1947, in Topeka, the daughter of David C. and Kathryn Smith Chesler.

Cynthia’s father served in the military, which caused her family to move throughout Kansas, Arkansas and Missouri during her childhood. Cynthia attended Bible college in Missouri, and would eventually become an ordained minister in the Christian Church.

She was joined in marriage to Robert G. Roller, July 18, 2001, in Osage City, Kan. During the first few years of their marriage, Cynthia and Robert lived in Osage City while she worked as a LPN at Stormont-Vail. They moved to a farm south of Hartford, Kan., in 2005. Cynthia took a position with the Coffey County Hospital, Burlington, Kan., until her retirement in 2010. In 2015, Cynthia and Robert moved into Hartford, where they remained in their current home the rest of her life.

Cynthia loved to sing and was a member of the Flint Hills Harmony vocal group in Emporia. Her other many interests and talents included making countless quilts for her family and friends. She and her husband regularly attended the Hartford United Methodist Church.

Cynthia will live on in the hearts and memories of her devoted husband, Robert G. Roller, of their home in Hartford; three grandchildren, Jayden (Rebekah) Kemmerer, of Hartford, Justice (Beca) Kemmerer, Hartford, and Shailee Kemmerer, Emporia; great-grandson, A.J.; sister, Debbie; and many extended family and countless friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and brothers, Brian and Danny.

Cremation is planned and memorial services will be 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 10, at VanArsdale Funeral Chapel, Osage City.
