 She was born on October 30, 1935, in Frederick, Colorado to Edward and Mary Walsh.

She married Earl Covey, they later divorced but were blessed with a wonderful son Robert.  She married Lee Carling and spent many years living in Plain City.  They later divorced but were blessed with two daughters Nancy and Connie. 

Roberta was a devoted and loving mother, grandmother, and friend. 

She loved spending time with her grandchildren who all have many fond memories with her.  She found joy in serving others, supporting family, and seeing the good in life and others.  These were qualities Roberta exemplified taking care of patients as a nurse’s aide.  She enjoyed square dancing with the Quarter Promenaders in her younger years and cheering on professional sports teams in her later years.

Roberta was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints where she served in many callings and especially loved the children in the nursery. 

Surviving are two daughters, Nancy (Steve) Shaw and Connie (Loren) Hurd, sister Carol (Dale) VanMeeteren, and brother Jerry (Rosanna) Walsh, five grandchildren, and four great-grandsons.
