Roberts, Lois Marie, 82, 1934 - 2016 Lois Roberts "Mimi" passed away peacefully on November 16, 2016 in the comfort of her home in Huntington Beach, CA surrounded by her family. We take comfort in knowing that she is once again with our father, "Papa" and at rest in the merciful arms of her Lord, Jesus Christ. Lois Marie Roberts, an only child, was born to Donald and Goldie Stack on March 23, 1934 in Miles City, Montana. Her family moved to South Dakota and Utah before settling in Richmond, California, where she spent her childhood. She met the love of her life, James "Wally" Roberts on a blind date in San Francisco, CA while he was serving in the US Navy. They were married on September 26, 1953. They lived in several states and finally settled in Huntington Beach, California in 1965. Wally and Lois moved to Mission Viejo shortly before Wally died in 2003. Lois moved back to Huntington Beach in 2010 after a minor stroke that left her unable to drive. Fortunately, she was able to lease a home right next door to her son Terry, and his partner Kurt, who became her primary caregivers until her death. Lois was a devoted wife and stay at home mother for many years. She made home cooked meals nearly every night and fresh baked cookies for her children's school lunches. When her children were grown, she decided to go to college and received her AA degree in Interior Design from Orange Coast Junior College. She loved interior design and had a flare for decorating. In 1982 she became the Office Manager of a busy physicians' office in Huntington Beach. She managed a medical group with 12 doctors as well as their staff, who loved her dearly. She retired in 1996 to take care of her husband who had developed many health problems. Lois loved doing arts and crafts, whether making Christmas ornaments, taking a cross stitch class, or sewing Halloween costumes for her grandsons. She loved playing cards and belonged to pinochle card groups in Mission Viejo and Huntington Beach. She loved hosting dinners for family and friends and she also made the best homemade strawberry jam ever! Lois is survived by her four children (and spouses): eldest son Don (Terri Roberts) of Black Diamond, WA; twin sons Terry (Kurt Weston) of Huntington Beach, CA and Larry (Tony Smith-Roberts) of Big Bear City, CA; daughter Tracey (Don Smith) of Mission Viejo, CA; her two grandsons Kyle and Austin; and many nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank Dr. Evelyne Llorente and her staff for the excellent and loving care they provided mom over the years. They would also like to thank Heritage Memorial Services for their professional and compassionate assistance during this difficult time. An ecumenical funeral and celebration of life will be held at St. Wilfrid of York Episcopal Church in Huntington Beach on January 7, 2017 at 11:00 AM. Address: 18631 Chapel Lane, Huntington Beach, CA 92646. A lunch will immediately follow the service in Sacquety Hall.
