    To the family, I met Roberta many years ago as I was a classmate of Linda’s at CC during the early sixties. Then my husband taught some of Roberta’s grandkids at CC. I think Rich and Nicky were the ones. Our daughter, Julie, was a teammate of Reanna’s at CP. Our fondest memories of Max and Roberta were their role as grandparents supporting their Central and Prairie granddaughters. They owned both Central and Prairie apparel and would wear 1/2 and 1/2 when the two teams played each other. Many of the girl’s teammates called Roberta, Grandma. Rest now Roberta and find joy in being with your daughters again.

    Roberta, and Max too, were the most wonderful neighbors. I have lived beside them ever since I was a little girl. In fact, they used to watch me for my parents when I was young. She was such a kind, giving woman. It seems she never knew a stranger. Every Halloween, I would stop at their home to show off my costume. As I grew up and had kids, the tradition continued. They were still wonderful neighbors to all my family, including my late grandparents, the Jones’s. They were especially kind to Grandpa after Grandma died. While they lived at the home place, I took my kids to their house to show off their Halloween costumes. I’m so sorry for the family’s loss of such a wonderful Mom, Grandma, Great-Grandma. The good thing is that she and Max get to be together again. Fly high my dear sweet friend, Roberta.

    We remember Roberta coming to the many athletic events her grandchildren were in and how she enjoyed them. We remember her working at Treece’s and how quickly she got things done. We also remember her at the Boyleston Baptist Church. She was a kind lady and always seemed to have a smile. We’ll keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.
