Roberta, Skip and her children lived in Whittier, Ventura, back to Whitter and finally in Houston, TX due to Skip’s job relocations.

After their retirement Roberta, Skip and her beloved dog Smokey would travel the country in their mobile home. When not traveling, her passion was fishing at her home away from home at Lake Limestone, TX with family and friends.
