EAST BERLIN Carole "Fritzi" (Miller) Roberson departed this world Friday, December 2, 2011 from her beloved second home in Ajijic, Mexico. She had been a long-time resident of Buffalo Ridge Farm in the hills outside East Berlin. Born in 1941 in Chicago, Ill., and raised in Gobles, Mich, she was a Graduate of Western Michigan and Shippensburg Universities. Carole relocated to York/Adams County in the late 1960s and was a longtime member of the Immaculate Heart of Mary parish in Abbottstown. She'll be remembered as an astute business woman, a rabid historian, a fascinating hostess, and a boundless creative. She loved her family, history, antiques, horses, the arts and good gossip. Her regular emails to family were often unintentionally hilarious as her typing was spotty and her typos were legendary. Regardless, Carole wrote short stories and was working on a screenplay. She was a difficult mother and a horrendous mother-in-law. She will STILL be missed. Carole is survived by her children: Marc (Lynne Ann)of Venetia, Amy (Jeff Beck) of Melbourne Beach, Fla., Brad (Jaya Sharma) of West Chester, Eva (Christopher Rupp), of NY, and Sarah (JebAnderson) of East Berlin; 12 grandchildren; sister, Virginia "Bunny"Guilfoil of Allegan, Mich.; a niece and two nephews. A memorial service will be held in the coming months.

Please know how sorry we are to learn of your loss. I haven't seen your mom in years but always enjoyed conversing with her. She was so different and that made her so unique and interesting!

To all of Carole's family - We are so sorry for your loss. Carole lived down the street from us and my children and I had just begun to get to know her before she moved to Mexico. My husband, Joe, knew your mother for years in East Berlin and tells many a story about her life there! Please let us know when the memorial service might be. God bless.
