Roberta retired as a general manager from the Illinois Secretary of State Driver Services. She was an extremely talented crafter, adept at everything from crocheting to weaving. She enjoyed trips to the riverboat and playing the slot machines. She liked collecting and treasure hunting for antiques. She was into salvaging and restoring old items before it became as popular as it is today. A very giving person, she gave much back to her community, often in ways that went unnoticed. She loved spending time with her grandchildren.
