Not sure what to say?

I will ALWAYS remember Roberta very fondly. She made a wonderful, lasting impact on my life, and on the lives of many. My condolences to the family!

Oh the lovely memories I have of Roberta as a colleague. She arrived with that twinkly smile of hers and soon had stories to tell, filling our day with laughter. Such a joy to know.

Joe and family, I hope you can find some comfort in your special memories of Roberta and in the happy years you shared. Roberta was my life long friend. From the first grade until our graduation from Frenchburg High we walked to school together every day. So many good memories, Girl Scouts, cheerleaders and chorus together. We stayed in touch and loved each other for 80 years. I will really miss her and know someday we will meet again.

So sorry to learn of Roberta's passing.I taught with Roberta for several years at Overton High School. She was a class act, and supported the Choral program I headed. Everyone loved her. I am sad to learn of her Alzheimer's battle. It is good to know she passed peacefully. David Spencer

(Oh, she played matchmaker with me and an anonymous (and very cute) guy in my class. It didn't work out, but she did give it her all.) I love her for that, and all I wrote above.
My heart goes out to her family.

Mrs Daws was the best teacher I ever had. Brilliant, witty, kind. She encouraged not only learning the rules of grammar, but also encouraged creativity in her students. I owe so very much to her. (Oh, she played matchmaker with me and an anonymous (and very cute) guy in my class. It didn't work out, but she did give it her all; and she and I had fun) I love her for that, and all I wrote above.
My heart goes out to her family.
