Muria Ann Roberts Obituary
ROBERTS, Muria Ann Muria Ann Roberts, 73, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 at Heartland Healthcare Center in Austin, Texas. She was born on August 20, 1944 in Orleans, VT to Maurice Roberts and Evelyn (Roberts) Jenne. At the core of Muria's life was her desire to help others. This was conveyed through her employment as a therapist, a mental health crisis worker and ombudsman while advocating for the elderly. Prior to this she had received her Master's degree in Psychology. Muria moved to Austin, Texas in 1996 and grew to love Texas life and the people. Muria's life reflected her spiritual nature and her love for animals, especially her cats and all of the many, many cats she helped over the years. She was truly visual & artistic and it showed in her surroundings. Muria was a part of a very supportive and loving community and her life was touched as much as she touched those around her. She is survived by her daughter, Deborah Forcier of Williston, VT, a son, Anthony Forcier of Bowdoinham, ME, her mother Evelyn of Newport VT, brother, Peter Roberts and his wife Nancy, sister Barbara Roberts and her partner Jim Webb and brother Philip Roberts. She was predeceased by her father Maurice & step-father Norman Jenne. Her family would like to extend their gratitude to Heartland Healthcare Center, Hospice Austin, her friends at the Church Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and especially her friend, Hope. Muria's friends in Texas were there for her consistently over the years. The generosity and selflessness will always be remembered. A private ceremony will be held.
