Our very loved and special Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother, Roberta Girdler, went to be with our Lord on April 27, 2014, after a long illness.
Roberta was born in San Francisco, CA to parents Arnold and Bernice Hutto on July 7, 1928. She lived the majority of her life in California, raising her children in the San Francisco Bay area wither husband Fred. They moved to Vacaville in 1990 to be closer to their daughters, Dorothy and DeeDee.
She loved spending time with family and friends. She was a great cook and generous hostess who welcomed all into her home and to her table. She loved sharing with all the special people in her life who were touched by her loving heart.
One of her favorite things to do on a Friday night was to ride her 4-trax to Joyce and Marv's barn, bringing a meal for all that had gathered. Joyce was the "adopted" daughter.
After her husband passed in 2000 she moved to Anacortes, WA to be closer to son Mark and family.
Roberta is survived by son Mark and wife Jean Girdler of Anacortes, WA, daughter Dorothy and husband Rick Gourley of Yreka, CA, and daughter DeeDee and husband Kim McCall of Anacortes, WA. She also leaves behind grandchildren and great-grandchildren who affectionately called her "Candygram."
Roberta lived a long and full life. She was cherished and loved by many. We will miss her sweet spirit and loving smile.
The family suggests donations be made in Roberta's name to Hospice of the Northwest in Mount Vernon, WA.
Arrangements are in the care of Evans Funeral Chapel and Crematory, Inc., Anacortes, WA and the San Juan Islands. To share memories of Roberta please sign the online guest register at
