    Roberta and Lew were well loved and always a blessing to the Grove Church. Roberta was always smiling and happy to chat a bit and Lew always had a story for me ( i loved his tie collection). They obviously were very much in love and enjoyed each others company. They will be sorely missed…. My sincerest condolences to Roberta’s family and friends. A big HUG and God’s blessings to Lew.

    Roberta will be sorely missed by all who knew her– Lew and Roberta were very much a part of my family’s get togethers for many years and were a part of our family. Roberta had a contagious smile that would light up a room. Her dedication and pride to and for her faith, family, and country was an inspiration to us all. She and Lew are great examples of what a marriage should be- full of love, loyalty, dedication, faith, and fun. Our hearts go out to Lew and their family now. And our thoughts will be with you as you celebrate Roberta’s life. God Bless you Lew and know you are in our prayers. Love ya, Karen and Rusty
