Roberta Ann Callais-Brown, at the age of 60, was called home by her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Dec. 25, 2010, after her battle with pancreatic cancer.
The Guest Book is expired.
Roberta was born in Rice, Minn., but lived most of her life in Livingston. For the last eight years, she lived in Bozeman at the Legion Villa apartments, where she enjoyed playing cards and board games with her friends. She also loved listening to Elvis Presley music and often watching his movies.
Robbie's beloved family and friends were always excited to see how she had decorated her home for every holiday. Christmas and Easter were her favorites. It is a comfort to her children to have the Lord take her on Christmas day, so that they may always be able to celebrate her life on such a blessed occasion.
She always took great interest and celebrated the accomplishments of her children and grandchildren, showering them with praise and love, and was always ready with a picture or story to share about them.
Roberta Ann-Callais Brown is survived by her father, Robert Callais of Livingston; her two daughters and their families: Sheila (Don) Swanson of Belgrade and their three children, D.R., Calvin, Aubrianna; and Jody (Steven) Johnson of Belgrade and their two children, Jalissa and Marissa; her sisters, Betty Hankinson and Sharon Payne; her first husband and the father of her two daughters, Edward Boggio; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
Robbie was preceded in death by her mother, Hazel Callais (1985), and her sister, Delsey Tecca (2007).
All of her friends are invited to help celebrate her life with us at 4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 30, at Fellowship Baptist Church, 2165 Durston Road, Bozeman. A reception will follow the service.
