She passed away peacefully on January 22, 2016 surrounded by loving family members and nursing staff at Bay Health Hospital in Dover, Delaware. She was preceded in death by two children, Roberta (Candy) and Cornell; and one brother, John. Her late parents relocated to Delaware in 1952 where Roberta spent all of her life.

Roberta leaves to cherish the memories of her life: one son, Anthony (Tony), a daughter-in-law, Nicole; three daughters, Sharelle, Cornelia, and Tammy; and a host of grandchildren and great grandchildren. Left with precious memories of their baby sister are two sisters: Elizabeil (William); Alice (Norwood, Sr.); and five brothers: Benjamin, Jr.; William (Shirley); Matthew (Rosa); James (Dorothy); and Thomas (Luvenia); and many nieces/nephews; great nieces/great nephews and great/great nieces/great, great nephews. One aunt one uncle, and many cousins as well as her friends will cherish fond memories of Roberta. The family recognizes all friends who visited our dear relative at Silverlake Nursing Home, Capitol Nursing Home and at Bay Health Hospital during the course of her illness.

We thank God for all the prayers for our dear relative's life and now we pray that her soul will rest in peace.
