She wore rose colored glasses, seeing the world full of possibilities. Her witty humor, love of the arts and go-get-it attitude blossomed her into a very accomplished woman of music and film. Roberta was an opera singer, choral singer as one of the original members of Grammy-Award-Winner "The Gregg Smith Singers", SAG Actress, Script Supervisor, Technical Coordinator and Director. She was the top script supervisor. Her gifts and skills were well known and she was a joy to work with. Just ask Alan Ada!
