June E. Roberts Obituary

June E. Roberts, 87, of Chico, California, passed away peacefully with her family by her side at Townsend House in Chico on May 2, 2014 after a long illness.

Memorial services will be held at the Church on the Esplanade in Chico Friday, June 20th at 2:00 pm.

She was born in Forest Park, Ill, on June 24, 1926, to Ralph and Elsie Koeller, and grew up in El Monte, CA.

She is survived by two sons, Daniel L. Roberts and wife Barbara of Roseville and Richard D. Roberts and wife Jerri of Chico; two grandchildren, R. Christian Roberts of Santa Clarita, and Heather A. Martin of Chico; five great-grandchildren, Ryan, Eli and Cody Martin, Andrew and Joshua Roberts; a sister, Shirley Gallagher of Monrovia; two nieces, Anna Wilson of Huntington Beach, and Kathleen Ballard of Altadena.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Wilbur Mayfield Roberts.

Together they established, owned and operated the Canyon Cooler Frosty Stand in Sedona, Arizona, in 1954, and the Mobile Home Ranch Park in Yuba City from 1966 until 1982.

June loved music, painting, sewing, reading, camping and cooking. Her greatest love was for her Lord and Savior, and for her family. June's life of love and service is a testimony to the life of Christ in her. She was the church pianist for many years in El Monte before moving to Colusa in 1960, and then to Yuba City in 1966. June was a member of Grace Baptist Church in Yuba City before moving to Chico in 2010. She had always been an active member of her church, teaching Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, and singing in the choir wherever she attended. She was the church organist while attending Tierra Buena Baptist Church in 1968. In Chico she attended Church on The Esplanade and Grace Community Church.
