Rosella was born on August 4, 1918, in Elbowoods, ND, to James Hall Sr. and Sarah Fredericks. She was one of 11 children, and at the time of her passing was the oldest living member of the Three Affiliated Tribes.
Rosella married her sweetheart, Nathan Little Soldier, on October 16, 1938. To this union were born five sons, two of whom died in infancy. Their son, Shotae, died in 1996. Surviving children are Dale (Suzie) of Mandan, ND, and Arby (Patricia) of Albuquerque, NM. Nathan died in August of 1980.
Rosella served others in many capacities throughout her long life and was lovingly called Mother or Grandmother or Auntie by many who were not her own. She worked for North Dakota State Extension Service for 20 years. She was a member of the Twin Buttes School Board as well as the Twin Buttes Congregational Church Council. The roll she enjoyed the most was being the caretaker for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
