Jovita was born November 6, 1946 in Emmons County to James and Barbara Wald.  She attended country school and Catholic boarding school in Hankinson graduating from Annunciation Priory in Bismarck. Jovita married Clemens Rohrich on June 12, 1965 and six children were born during that union.  She married Rodney Anderson on April 18, 2018.

Jovita held variety of job positions before working for University of Mary as information desk and switchboard operator, which made her the “Voice of University of Mary.” Her love for life was contagious. Jovita loved to cook and bake for family and friends and celebrate birthday and holidays.  She loved to dress up for holidays, especially Halloween. Retirement provided more time for grandchildren, which she adored and cherished.  Jovita loved to travel, cruise garage sales with Rita, do an occasional casino run and attend birthday club gatherings. 

Jovita is survived by her husband, Rodney; daughters, Charlene (Rick) Rohrich-Reiswig and Pam (Vern) Kuntz; sons, Kevin Rohrich, Calvin Rohrich, Darin (Tara) Rohrich and Steve Rohrich; brother, Francis (Charlene) Wald; sisters, Diane (Mike) MuJadin and Charmaine (Rich) Skjonsby; grandchildren, Jordan (Michelle) Rohrich, Kathryn (Alex Spilman) Reiswig, Carson, Gabrielle, Grace, Mary, Julianna, and Caroline Rohrich; aunt, Jolanta (Albert) Horner; 22 great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends; step-children, Pat (Vicki) Selzer, Kari (Ron) Simek, Julie (Dan) Pfliiger, Gerry (Karen) Butler, Joni Bennett, and Mark Anderson; step-grandchildren, Jen (Ben) Schiermeister, Dustin Selzler, Ashley Selzler, Eric Kuntz, Levi Kuntz, Tanya Kuntz, Christina (Ross) Jensen, Lane and Lauren Wilkens and Deklan Pfliiger.
