Roberta Jean ROSS

(nee: Aitken)

Mar. 23, 1933 – Nov. 22, 2011

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Roberta on Tuesday, November 22, 2011 at Powell River, BC. Born in Chilliwack, BC on March 23, 1933.

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Thomas, her children Kathy (Randy), Valerie (Jack) and Scott (Leslie), her grandchildren Langley, Shawn, Krista and Katie; and great-grandsons Ty and Trenton. Also, survived by her two sisters, Jane Hansen (Edmonton), Nina Racine (Abbotsford) and brother Raymond (Heather) Aitken (Chilliwack).

Roberta grew up in Chilliwack, and after completing high school, she completed her nurses training at Vancouver General Hospital and became a qualified registered nurse. Upon her marriage to Thomas and the arrival of their three children, she and her family relocated to Powell River where she resided until her death.

We welcome all to a celebration of life on Monday, December 20 at the Powell River Seniors Centre from 12-4 pm.

In lieu of flowers the family requests anyone wishing to do so make a donation to Oncology Unit of the Powell River General Hospital.
