One of her longest spans was providing support to the Physical Sciences Branch of Computer Services Directorate. She received many outstanding performance awards during her career. She retired as a Budget Analyst on 03/03/2003 from NAWC AD Comptroller. Roberta decided to continue working and did so for various defense contractors until present. She will be remembered by many of her co-workers “as a knowledgeable and fun person to work with”.

Roberta was a very sweet, kind and loving woman who was always taking care of others ahead of herself. When she did have relaxation time, she enjoyed listening to Beatles music and reading on her Kindle. She loved lighthouses and the season of fall. She never played sports herself but she always cheered for the Redskins.

She was a member of the First Saints United Methodist Church, St George’s Island Campus. In fact, she was the President of the St George’s Island UMC Chapter of United Methodist Women for 15 years. Roberta also taught Sunday school to her sons and later her grandchildren.

As a young mother, Roberta was soon to take on the role of “Single Mom”. She accepted this role with strength and dignity and dedicated her time to make sure that her sons had all they needed to achieve their goals in life. She was active in their Cub Scout Pack 561 (Piney Point) and all their school activities. She was most proud of both of her sons’ involvement in volunteering for the Fire and Emergency Services.

Her grandchildren have brought her great joy. She learned how to play the Battleship game and was skilled at playing UNO. She always praised them for their achievements. She loved being their “Berta”. She always told them “I love you a bushel and a peak and a hug around the neck”.
