If she is going to withdraw the funds in the near future, what is the use of contributing to a ROTH?

I was thinking mainly of the flexibility that this account would offer -- and the (probably) higher return than could be made by parking the money in a savings account. By flexibility I mean she could take the funds out in three years, say, if she needed them. Or she could let them ride for a dozen or so years if she didn't need them. (It's not that we intend to use the funds quickly, but we have the possibility.)
