Loved by all, Roberta could warm your heart with just a smile, her happiness and joy contagiously filled any room, no matter the size. Roberta was naturally a leader and deeply rooted in community involvement throughout all stages of her life. Among numerous accolades, Roberta's educational journey included degrees from CCBC, Geneva College and a master's in Rehab Counseling from Pitt University. Recently retired from her position as Assistant District Administrator at OVR, New Castle. She made significant contributions to the world of adaptive rowing, and she was involved with the Three Rivers Rowing Association and Founder of the Beaver Valley Rowing Association. 

She found solace and purpose in her active involvement with Holy Family (Our Lady of the Valley), where she shared her melodious voice in the choir and imparted her wisdom as a CCD teacher. She devoted her entire life helping others. Her selflessness and compassion continue to inspire us all. May her soul find eternal peace and heaven renew her body as her legacy of love and kindness live on.
