Enid Z. Roland

MARION, Va.: ENID Z. ROLAND, age 83, died Friday, February 5, 2016 at Smyth County Community Hospital, Marion Va. Enid for many years was the first person someone moving to Marion would meet. She was the official Welcome Wagon Ambassador. If you were looking for a bank, church or business, Mrs. Roland knew how to take care of folks. She was wonderful wife, mother and grandma. As a matter of fact, she loved being a grandma and cherished her family. Never to let her husband, Don, “get one up on her”, she took up fishing to spend more time with him and eventually ended catching bigger fish than he did. She had the mounted fish to prove it! Enid was a giver and always a positive force. She was so active with her church, helping with finances, traveling with the Joy Group and growing closer in her walk with her Sunday School Class. Mrs. Roland never stopped learning. Don had half of a plane, she learned how to fly. She loved playing the piano and reading. It’s been said, Enid Roland could open a library out of her home. The Virginia Cavaliers and the Atlanta Braves lost a huge fan, but if there’s a cheering section, a creek bank or an official Welcome Wagon in Heaven, you can bet Enid’s found her place, her Don and her Lord. She will be missed. She was preceded in death by her husband, Donald Nelson “Don” Roland, Sr.; and her parents, Charle and Winifred Angel Ziemann. Enid is survived by her daughters, Patti McCambridge and husband, Jack of Chesapeake, Va., Angela Roland of Marion, Va.; sons, David Roland of Suwanee, Ga., and Donald Roland, Jr. of Triangle, Va.; grandchildren, Keirstin McCambridge of Chicago, Il., and Andrew Roland of Atlanta, Ga.; special cousins, Bill and Ida Pugh of Marion, Va. Funeral services will be held Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at 11 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church, Marion, Va. with Reverend David Woody officiating. Burial will follow in Rose Lawn Cemetery. The family will receive friends Monday, February 8, 2016 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to First United Methodist Church, 115 South Church Street, Marion VA 24354 or Alzheimer’s Association-Virginia Chapter, 1160 Pepsi Place, Suite 306, Charlottesville Va. 22901. Expressions of sympathy may be made to the family at www.seaverbrown.com. Seaver-Brown Funeral Service and Crematory is honored to serve the Roland Family.

My best friend is what I would always call Enid and she would always say, "Well you must not have many friends if I'm your best friend." I loved this lady and will never forget her because at the time she was my best friend. She will always have a special place in my heart. I miss you dearly Enid...Love your friend, Kathey

Patty, David, Donnie and Angie. Due to health issues we are unable to be with you. Your Dad and Mom have been friends for many years. Sure will miss them. Love to each of you.

Patty, Angie, David, and Donnie: We are saddened to learn of your Mother's death but know that she is celebrating to be with Don once again. She was a lovely lady whom we missed this past year when we turned around to shake hands at church. We are in Florida until late April but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. If we can do anything for you when we return to Marion feel free to call. Ron and Charlotte Faris

Dear Patti, David, Donnie and Angie. I am so sorry your Mom is not with us, but so glad she has joined your father and her Jesus. My last memory of her will be from last October when Jan and I stopped by. She was in her rocker and smiled the entire time we were. May God's strength guide you in the difficult days to come.
