Roberta was a woman of strong faith who, throughout her life, was involved in many church activities, and was dearly loved by all who knew her.  She always enjoyed her many trips back to Minneapolis visiting family and old acquaintances, and loved having coffee with her many friends.  Roberta was a member of Calvary Baptist and Emmanuel Churches for many years and recently attended Redeeming Grace Church.
