On March 2, 1946, Roberta was married to Lloyd A. Wolf in Gaylord where they raised their family and spent their lives together. She was a dedicated, loving wife to Lloyd and mother to daughters, Connie, Barbara, and Rebecca.
She will be remembered by her family and friends for her love of nature and gardening, and her independent, fun-loving, adventurous, and generous spirit.

She sewed many of her daughter’s clothes and knitted sweaters for children and grandchildren, which are still being worn. The family belonged to the Gaylord First United Methodist Church where Roberta was a Sunday school teacher.
They worked as a team in many ways. Lloyd and Roberta operated and owned the Rollaway Roller Rink ran the rink for years. Lloyd operated Lloyd Wolf Construction, and Roberta was the bookkeeper for the business.
In her 40’s, she pursued her passion for flying, becoming a licensed pilot and a member of Civil Air Patrol. She and Lloyd enjoyed snowmobiling and motorcycling with their many friends.
