Loving Mother and friend, passed away on May 8, 2020.

She was a New Years Baby born in a home in Lovell Wyoming January 1, 1931.

Roberta was loved by all who knew her. She taught several nursing home residents how to play rummy and soon some of the nurses were playing also! She enjoyed activities such as bingo and sang at the ice cream socials.

Roberta was a true American Patriot! She loved the flag and our Country. Denver Broncos was her favorite team and she supported them whether they won or lost.

She went to culinary school in Ft. Collins, CO. in 1964 and worked at Park Elementary School in Durango, Co.

Roberta was raised in Chama, NM but lived most of her life in Durango, CO. She also lived in Las Vegas, Nevada, and resided in Farmington since 2010. She is survived by her sisters Molly Upton of Forest City, NC, and Frances Salazar of Chama, NM, daughter Melody and husband Marty Hostetter of Farmington, NM, and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. She was preceded in death by her sons Jon and Frank Preuss, brother's Eddie, Roosevelt, Raynell, Arthur, Tony, Jake, and Sister's Caroline and Mela.

Services for Roberta will be tentatively held on August 22nd, in Durango, CO. We would like to thank LifeCare of Farmington's Staff and San Juan Regional Medical Center nurses and doctors for all their care and support.

Mother, singing at the Ice Cream Social!
My mother was genuine. There will never be another quite like her. The saying" never met a stranger" is so true for my mother. She loved all people.

My Dear Melody!:
It was with great sorrow AND sadness that I read the obituary of your dear mother, Roberta!
While growing up in Durango, CO., she was always the modicum of respect AND engagement with myself. She possessed, as yourself, a genuine respect for life AND others!
I shall arrange a Mass enrollment for the eternal rest of her soul.
Let's keep in contact, please?
With deepest sympathy AND condolences,
Dr. Don Contreras, DCN., MD. and Family.
