A dedicated mother, wife, and sister, Roberta loved her Lord, her family, and the sisterhood of P.E.O. She was a lifelong member of P.E.O. and served as president of her Chapter. Roberta recomposed the opening Ode for P.E.O. Displaying the heart of servant, she spent many hours as a church and hospital volunteer.

It has been said that of all the books in the world, the best stories can be found between pages of passports. Roberta certainly proved this adage true and was an enthusiastic traveler. She especially loved family travel trips. When one trip was winding down, Roberta was already planning the next! She was adventurous and curious. When Roberta wasn’t traveling, she was playing her Steinway grand piano. Music was among her many passions in life and it brought joy and comfort to many.
Roberta is survived by her daughter, Michelle Lindly, her sister Phyllis Robinson, her niece, Sharla Davenport, her nephew, Steven Metz, her grandchildren, Weston Wooddell, Jordan Wooddell, Frank Jackson, Ashley Lindly, and her great grandchildren, Paisley Wooddell, Penelope Wooddell, Addie Wooddell and Julien Jackson.
