I am so sorry to hear of Roberta passing. My favorite memories of Roberta were listening to her tell stories. She had such a knack for it and she made simple themes like sledding in the winter into adventures by "climbing up onto the roof to get a good start." Her sharing of her time in California as a teen should be made into a movie, what with the fancy Hilton party out on Catalina Island and then her walking back to where she was staying because of the bus strike and then walking through Watts at a time when a young woman, especially a white women, at that particular time could cause some tension to say the least. The years we worked together at MCMH in residential care allowed for these stories to unfold and she shared her ways of getting things done with staff and clients alike. She was always a delight to talk with, whether joking or complaining. She just made everything more interesting.
That's my little snapshot of Roberta. I know she led a big busy life and I admire her for all she overcame and all she accomplished.
With love, Joel Horne
