Marian G. Roberts of Oviedo was reunited with her late husband, Tom W. Roberts, Sr. on June 8, 2017. Born February 17, 1930, she was the daughter of Anthony and Mary Elwartowski. An Air Force veteran, she dedicated her life to volunteer work through many civic and veteran organizations, bringing special attention to “Women are Veterans Too”. She loved to do needlepoint and invariably anyone who crossed her path did not go away without accepting one of her handmade gifts. Everyone knew Marian for her great sense of humor and even two hours before her death, she was still making people laugh.

Marian will be lovingly remembered by her eight children- Debbie Micoley, Dawn McMichael, David Knutson, Darlene King, Tom W. Roberts, Jr., Terry Lyons, Mary Hayes McGrane and Lanse Roberts, 20 Grandchildren, 22 Great-Grandchildren and 5 Great-Great-Grandchildren.

A memorial service, celebrating her life, will be held on August 9, 2017 at University Carillon United Methodist Church of Oviedo at 10:30AM, followed by a luncheon at the church. There will be a military service at 2:30PM at The Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, FL.

The family requests those attending honor her by wearing something in her favorite color, purple. Memorial contributions can be made to any veteran organization of your choice.
