December 9, 1926 – November 17, 2019
“I love you mom, until we meet again”
Roberta Mae Rickson passed away peacefully on November 17, 2019 at the age of 92. She is survived by her loving daughter Sandra Gail, her sister Lois, daughter-in-law Helen, her three grandsons Mark, Ryan, and Michael as well as 5 great- grand-children and one great-great grandson. She is predeceased by her son Mark (1995) and her little dog Holly.
Roberta lived in Vancouver and Surrey until 2016 when she joined her daughter in Nanaimo, BC. Roberta lived her final three years at Nanaimo Travellers Lodge and Eden Gardens where she stood out with her purple hair, bright nail polish, and she was always in her signature colors purple or pink.
Roberta was a homemaker most of her life, however, she was always so proud of her first job dipping chocolates at Purdy’s.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to her caregivers at Eden Gardens for their diligent care and compassion, words can not express our gratitude.
There will be a gathering in the Spring to Celebrate Roberta’s life. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in her memory to Eden Gardens or the SPCA.
