Roberta Watson

Roberta Jean (Smith) (Hall) Watson was born into a family in 1925 that worked hard, loved each other and focused on God as the center of life.
She was born to George and Althea Smith and lived with brothers Wilmer and Neil and sister, Opal. They all taught her how to value others, the importance of humor and fun and a strong work ethic that carried her through life.
Roberta married Charles Hall and together raised three children: Charles, Kathy and Patty. All three married and had spouses Anne, John and Jon.
Roberta later married Warren Watson. She adored her family and cherished every minute she could spend with them and had grandchildren Mark, Jeff, Karen, Angela, Susanne, Justin, Mary Ellen, Adam, and Taylor; great-grandchildren Daniel, Damien, Isaiah, Eleanah, Abby, Colin, Gavin, Lily, Charlie and JoJo; and great-great-granddaughter Hazel Rose.
Roberta worked for Woodmen Accident and Life until her retirement in 1985. She was known for her easy smile, caring heart and character. She was a giver in all aspects and took her faith in Jesus as the paramount issue of her life.
Roberta was a testimony of “healthy living,” which allowed her to battle cancer and withstand chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery for four years. She later switched to organic living and alternative options to allow her to live a quality life. 
Roberta died March 10, 2020. She was 94.
A celebration of life memorial will be designated at a later date. Direct any memorial donations to Grace Baptist Church, 1115 Vine Street, Grand Island, NE 68801.
