Roberta Kinkaid Obituary
November 8, 1941 - January 6, 2018

Born in Park Ridge, Illinois in 1941 to Robert Kinkaid and Olga Michelson Kinkaid, Roberta Ann Kinkaid spent her youth in Kenilworth, Illinois and Lakewood, Ohio graduating from Lakewood High School in 1959. She and her Mother moved to California in 1963 settling in Santa Monica initially. They moved into their home on Crespi Street in 1967 where Roberta lived for 48 years until she had to enter a Board and Care.

Roberta contracted polio when she was five years old which affected her physical abilities and life choices. Nevertheless, it did not hamper her determination to live a full life. Roberta worked as a medical secretary in a physician's practice in West Hills for years. She was an enthusiastic pet owner and animal lover, and a good neighbor to those who lived on Crespi Street. Roberta was a woman of great faith and was active in St. Luke's Church. She often said that her faith in God gave her the strength and courage to keep on in the face of many medical setbacks. She experienced post-polio
syndrome in her 60's with further muscle weakness causing more medical complications. She was thankful to the doctors, medical personnel and caregivers who treated her and cared for her over the years.

She is survived by her brother, James Kinkaid and his wife Sharon, of Palmetto, Florida and her cousin, Catherine Salisbury and her husband, William, of Hingham, Massachusetts.
