Everyone of our friends called her Momma Roberts. She was like a mother figure to all of them.  She was a devoted fan of the Cincinnati Reds and loved big band music.  Loved going out to dinner with her family and friends and talking long car rides thought out the city and reminiscing of her childhood days.  Sneaking into the Reds games at Crosley Field. Listening to the Reds on radio at the local store fronts a few businesses would put radios out front of the store for people to gather. Taking the river boat to Coney Island to go to the Moon light garden to listen and dance to the big bands.  Times were tough back then she started work at 15 making bullets during World War ll at the Heekin Can company.  She worked hard all of her life to raise her children. RCA 22 years and Osborne & Doran for 30 years retired and went back to work for a few more years.  She loved her family and all of her friends.  We were blessed to have her in our lives.
