Sorry to hear about Rollies dealth. I metRollie during the 90s at JFCS for helpful counseling for myself and my children. She was a very kind and wise person who helped many people, and she will be greatly missed. God bless your family.
I met Rollie at a new student Orientation at MCTC. I was so impressed by the way she jumped right in to assist students. Her kind words and encouragement were so essential to these students, who were just beginning to find their educational and career path and feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the information they received at Orientation. She was a vibrant, lovely woman. My prayers to her daughters and extended family.
Our deepest condolences to Rollie's family. I was a classmate of Rollie's at North High School and my wife and I have served on the Reunion Committee.
She will be missed so much by all. God Bless you in your sorrow.
March 9, Sorry to read about Rollie's death. Fondly remember our connections as neighbors on Burnham Blvd. It was always nice to run into her whenever I came into the Cities now that we live out in rural Wisconsin. Regards to the family especially to Kristy.

To the family of Rollie and Leonard Langer, M.D. Your parents are remembered here at Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare. Condolences to you at this sad time.
I'm so sorry for your loss. Rollie helped me with an English paper last year at MCTC, and not only were her suggestions helpful - when I shared the circumstances that led me to go to college in my fifties, she was so supportive, encouraging and kind. What a treasure she was! - - Denise Davis
My deepest condolences to Rollie's family. I spent just one brief evening with Rollie at the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance support group in Minneapolis. I immediately fell in love with her spirit, kindness, and warmth. We talked briefly on the phone once after that just to check in with each other and I wish I could have gotten to know her better.
Best regards, Judy Prokosch
I never met Rollie, and reading through her obituary and these tributes, I'm sure I would have found her to be extraordinary.
I was a classmate of Sara's and am just extending my condolences to you all.
How lucky many of us are to have our parents in our lives for so long; may the many memories you have of your mom be a comfort to you as you adjust to life without her.

Rollie was one of the first folks I met when I too joined the tutors at MCTC. Her devotion to students was so obvious. She was a wonderful role model for all and will be truly missed.
Dear Maren, Sara, Elizabeth, Kristen and Family,
My heart goes out to all of you. Our moms were such good friends most of their lives and I got to know her even better one summer in Madison. She was such a help to me during that time. I will greatly miss her gentle spirit. All my love,

I met Rollie in 2011 when I started working for Starting Point at MCTC. It was very clear how much she cared for our students, and in return, how much they care for her. I am truly blessed to have known Rollie, even if it was for a short amount of time. Langer family, thank you for sharing her with us.
I only got to know Rollie in August, 2012, when she came to a tutor training at MCTC, and she became a steadfast friend. She immediately figured out that I was the daughter of one of her former high school acquaintances, and the bond was formed. She would stop by my office each Tuesday to check in and see how my mom was doing with her cancer struggles, and her compassion was endless. I followed Rollie, too, as she made her decisions about the path to follow with her own cancer. With her passing there is definitely a hole in the lives of the many people she helped. May her memory be a blessing.
I met Rollie in 2008 when she starting volunteering as a tutor for the TRiO Starting Point program at Minneapolis Community and Technical College; she was with us until December 2012. She was so gracious from the beginning,I knew our students and staff would love her. And we did! Her beautiful spirit glowed every day she was with us and she truly cared about our students. We will deeply miss her. Our thoughts and prayers to you all.
Kristen, Maren, Sara and Elizabeth: I feel in some ways that I've lost my second Mom, a wonderful person I knew for most of my life and who loved you all so much - unconditionally and forever.
My thoughts are with you at this time.
Dear Maren, Sara, Elizabeth, Kristen and Family,
It was our privilege to provide care for your beloved mother. We share in your grief and send you our love.

Charles, Sally, Jill and Jack Bedow of Port Lavaca, Texas can not find the words since I have known both Doc and Rollie since 1963 and Sally since 1965, words can not express our sorrow and the family's loss. We watched the daughters grow into a great assets to them.
Rollie is going to be missed by so many of us. She was one of our BOND Bridge players and such a lovely wonderful
classy beautiful lady. With my deepest condolences and sympathy,
Rollie was very kind to staff and students in the TRiO Starting Point program at Minneapolis Community & Technical College. She always had kind and encouraging words for everyone and was a very wise and humble person. She will be remembered for her graciousness and all the other beautiful things about her. I enjoyed working with her.
Rollie was such a beautiful lady that my family has known all of my life through The Little People of America. She was incredibly patient and kind to everyone around her. Heaven has truly received another amazing angel. I hope she and Len can now take their long walks together and enjoy the deep conversations just like before. Rejoice in Rollie's lovely life and know that her pain and suffering is gone. Prayer to the family.
