Roberta’s lifehas been richly blessed through her children, D.J. Barker, Shanona (Brian) Johnson and Craig (Jacey) Barker and her beloved granddaughters who she adored, cherished and gave unconditional support. She loved her role as nana.
The last 20 years, Roberta shared her life with her best friend and husband, Mark Hardy. They have been very devoted to each other, creating a deep bond that carried them through this difficult time. Mark stayed by Roberta’s side and comforted her and celebrated with her as they rejoiced with each victory.
Roberta was an amazing woman who gathered friends wherever she went. These friendships have enriched her life. She was an example of unselfish love and gave of herself and her time to everyone, especially her family and friends. Roberta loved to bake, sew and quilt. She sent many extra treats with Mark in his lunchbox to share with all his crew. Roberta was the favorite Aunt and loved that title.
