In Memory of Nancy Mary (Szluk) Roth

​August 23, 1942 - September 4, 2018   


​Nancy Mary (Szluk) Roth, 76 years old, passed into God's loving embrace on September 4, 2018, surrounded by her family. She was born on August 23, 1942, to John and Irene (Lucas) Szluk and grew up in Lincoln Park, MI. 

The Salutatorian of her class at Lincoln Park High School, Nancy attended the University of Michigan, graduating in 1964 with a degree in nursing. Nancy was devoted to the Maize and Blue and loved passionately singing all the UM glee club songs! 

Nancy was a nurse at Evanston Hospital (IL) when she met Donald (Don) Richard Roth, whom she married on
July 2, 1966. She became a dedicated flight attendant at United Airlines, flying for decades, bringing enthusiasm and a quick wit to passengers around the globe. She traveled the world many times over and as a patriotic and proud American, she especially loved the U.S. troop transports. Nancy never met a stranger! 

Nancy was blessed with three children (Donald Jr., Eric, and Carolyn) and multiple grandchildren, with whom she was very close and spoiled like only a doting Grandmother can. Nancy is survived by her husband of 52 years, three children and many grandchildren. 

​In lieu of flowers or other items, donations can be made in her honor to the Ocular Melanoma Foundation.
