Mrs. Roth enjoyed owning Long Lake Bar where she hosted numerous events for the community and her family. She was well loved by the employees and were one big happy family. Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren at 4th of July BBQ, floating down AuSable River on inner tubes with fireworks later that night. She always enjoyed attending school and sporting events with her grands and greats.

She tried to do everything she could to make life easier for all by serving grand meals with a helping of tough love. She will be sorely missed by all.
