Witt, Roberta age 88, of Burnsville, passed away gently on 4/24/12. She left this world with a smile on her face as she entered God's loving embrace, surrounded by her family. She is forever loved and missed by her three children, Lanny Witt (Mary) of Fremont, CA, Lu Ann Carter (Dave) of Edina, Gregg Witt (Meg) of Carver; 8 adoring grandchildren, Kim, Nikki, Tommy, and Molly Carter, Amy, Shannon, Amanda, and Garret Witt; as well as brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Julian Witt. Roberta was a devout Catholic and an eternal optimist whose greatest joy came from being surrounded by her family and friends. Her sense of humor, zest for life, incessant curiosity and selflessness were a gift and an example to all who knew her. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. Whether singing with her music group, the Troubadours, playing cards with her card club, or taking organ lessons, she was always up for anything. SPECIAL THANKS TO THE LOVING, CARING STAFF AT N.C.
