Roberta Faith Blossom-Skinner Obituary
November 15, 1938 - May 23, 2016 Entered into rest May 23, 2016 in San Jose, Ca. following a lengthy and courageous battle with lung cancer. Born November 15, 1938 in Red Bluff, Ca. she lived much of her life in Los Angeles residing in Playa Del Rey. Roberta was predeceased by her loving husband Robert H. Skinner in 2008, her only brother Edward James Blossom in 1956, and survived by her beloved mother Eleanor E. Fritzell. Roberta is the treasured sister of Ellie Krail, zany auntie to Mark and Lisa Krail, Kelly and Krzyzsztof Adamkiewicz, and great auntie to Kevin, Courtney, Matthew and Ryan, "Earth Mother" to Jeffry and Karen Skinner, and Cathy Cornell, and loyal and trusted friend embraced by many. Roberta was a highly valued and respected Paralegal specializing in probate, trusts, and post death matters for over four decades with several prestigious law firms, retiring from the Los Angeles firm of Jeffer, Mangels, Butler, and Mitchell around 2010. Roberta was an avid world traveler, loving the sandy beaches and historical venues equally. Her insatiable passion for poetry, history, archeology, fine dining, Neil Diamond, and Blazing Sevens were exceeded only by her love of family, friends, humor, and drama. Roberta brought the gifts of laughter, light, and love to all who knew her - We will never be the same. A memorial celebrating Roberta's life will be held on Friday, June 24th, 2016 at the home of Mark and Lisa Krail from 4 to 7pm.
