ROBERTS Josephine (Jodie). July 22, 1927 ~ Sept. 6, 2013. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Josephine (Jodie) Roberts on September 6, 2013. Jodie was pre-deceased by her husband Edwin (Ed), six brothers: Mike, Alex, Peter, Orest, Walter and Roman, her two sisters: Julia and Annie. She is survived by her daughter Dorothy (Jerry), her son Russel (Kim), grandchildren: Daphne and James, great grandchildren: Reina, Colton, Haleigh, Shaelyn, and Ariana. Jodie was born in Vilna, Alberta and came to BC in her late teens. She married Ed in 1950, had her children in the lower mainland then they moved to Williams Lake in 1958. After they both retired, Jodie and Ed moved to Abbotsford. They loved traveling in their motor home. After Ed’s passing, Jodie became hooked on cruising and took several over the years. She loved going to the Caribbean. She and her best friend Claire (from her late teen years) took one of her most memorable trips to Europe and the Mediterranean, then spent a week going down the Nile on a barge to the pyramids. Jodie was President of the Abbotsford Seniors Association, now known as the Abbotsford Social Activity Association for several years and was dedicated to that organization. After a short fight with cancer, she passed peacefully in her sleep at the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission. There will be a Celebration of Life Service on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 1:30 pm at the Abbotsford Social Activity Association Building at: 33889 Essendene in Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation in Jodie’s name to any Hospice Society you would care to support.
