Obituary of Barbara Anne Roff

Surrounded by family, Barbara Anne Roff, 68, joined her mother, Elizabeth Chappuis, father, Donald Chappuis, and sister, Carol Chappuis, in heaven on July 19, 2020.  She was born in Fergus Falls, Minnesota.  Barb and her beloved husband and soulmate, Calvin F. Roff, PhD, met in 1974 and married in 1978.  They laughed and danced their way through an incredible life together.


His Barbie Anne is now dancing in heaven, pain free.


Her infectious laugh, limitless strength, and vivacious personality will live on through her four daughters and son-in-laws, Robin (Steven) Dekelbaum, Kerry (Steven) Hilst, Elizabeth (Chris Brueske) Roff, and Collette (Josh) Jonte; her Grandchildren, Emily Hilst, Shawn Hilst, Zachary Dekelbaum, Shayna Dekelbaum, Linus Brueske, Mackenzie Jonte, and Elizabeth Jonte; her brother, Greg (Amy) Chappuis; and her many nieces, nephews, and friends.


A life in memoriam celebration will be delayed until later this year because of COVID-19. Details will be forthcoming.


In lieu of flowers or gifts, please consider making a donation to the American Cancer Society, Red Cross, or Salvation Army in memory of Barb.
