Roberta Helm Bremer Notice
Dec. 3, 1917 - April 18, 2013
Resident of Crockett, Roberta (Bobby) was born in Vallejo to Robert Burdus Helm and Mary Veronica Connors. She is survived by her granddaughters, Terri Murray, Kelli Bremer, Jacki Matejka, Robbi Porter and by her grandson, Scott Bremer, all of Crockett. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jack W. Bremer; son, Robert W. "Sonny" Bremer; granddaughter, Jill N. Bremer and grandson, Max K. Bremer.
She leaves great-grandchildren, Gus Murray, Naomi Murray, Addi Peterson, Trevor Cross, Heidi Tank, Kiersti Matejka, Robert S. Bremer, Christi Bremer, Max. W. Bremer, Tyler Gendreau and Bremer Porter. Her great-great-grandchildren are: Gus and Angelo Murray, Andre Murray, Clarici Peterson, Lexi and Gunnar Tank and Aiden and Kenzi Bremer. She is also survived by her cousin, Karen Yates Lafferty of Woodland, CA.
Through her mother, Mary Conners, Bobby descended from a San Francisco Irish couple, Terrence and Maggie Connors, who purchased a lot on First Street, Crockett, in 1879 for $10 in gold coin and by 1884, had established a grocery store in town.
Bobby worked as a driver at the Richmond Shipyards during WWII, as a sales person at Valli and Crivelli in their Crockett and Rodeo emporiums, and as a bookkeeper for Home Laundry and Hosselkus Mortuary, both local businesses. She owned and operated Bobby's Flowers in Crockett for more than 10 years. The 25 years before retiring were spent with Del and Emma at the Mortuary. Bobby and her husband, Jack, enjoyed traveling in their motor home to Mexico and throughout the western and southern sections of the United States, including Alaska.
She was the loyal matriarch of the Bremer Family. When a birthday, shower or graduation party was scheduled, she would cancel all other engagements - being with "the kids" was a pleasure.
Bobby was a Director of the Crockett Museum and Historical Society. She was president in 1953 of the Carquinez Parlor of the Native Daughters of the Golden West, Crockett, and most recently held membership with the Vallejo Native Daughters. Bobby belonged to the Vallejo Women of the Moose, where she enjoyed many friendships.
Memorial donations may be made to the Crockett Museum, P.O. Box 194, Crockett 94525.
A Celebration of Bobby's life will be held in Crockett at noon on Sunday, May 19, at the Hosselkus Chapel of Wilson & Kratzer. 510-799-1411.
