Roberts, Anita Gertrude (Nee Wattam ) Age 84, of New Berlin, died peacefully Wednesday March 26, 2014, at home surrounded by her loving family. Anita was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, November 24, 1929 to the late Kenneth and Verdi (nee Albin) Wattam.

Above all else, she loved her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews and had a very special place in her heart for Mary Helen and the late Paul Strong, Mary Margaret Roberts, Fran and Judie Roberts. She had a very deep love for her Illinois family, rooted in many childhood visits and time spent with cousins and good friends in Newman. Her love of travel and journeys around the world inspired her many decorated Christmas trees at the holidays and her enthusiasm for collecting "all things pigs" will be remembered fondly. She had a special affection for the Les Cheneaux Islands and Northern Michigan. She volunteered for many years for the Girl Scouts, The New Berlin Lioness Club and Church Women United.
