A Mass of Christian burial for Miss Rollman, who was 76, will be offered at 10 a.m. today in the chapel at Stella Maris, 2300 Dulaney Valley Road.

She started working in the Catholic chancery office in 1935, then moved to the rectory of the Basilica of the Assumption.

She worked with matrimonial records at first and, during World War II, often was drafted as a witness at weddings hastily arranged because of orders for overseas assignments.

She was a volunteer at St. Martin's Home for the Aged of the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Born in Baltimore, she was educated at St. Joseph Passionist Monastery School and at Seton High School.

In 1970, Pope Paul VI awarded her the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Award for her work for the archdiocese.

In 1975, she went to Rome on an archdiocesan charter flight for the canonization of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.

Her survivors include a brother, Leo Rollman of Orlando, Fla.; and two sisters, Mary Kirchgessner of Rochester, N.Y., and Zita Miller of Florence, Colo.
