Roberta was born in Estevan, SK and spent
most of her formative years in the US and the prairie provinces. Her work in funeral service began in 1996 in
Regina, SK at Lee Funeral Home as an Aftercare Specialist. She then worked as an Administrator, acquired
her license as a Funeral Director during those years and moved into managing that
location in 2002. Following a 4-year break from funeral service, working with
special needs equipment and then managing an independent living complex in
Regina called Queen Victoria Estates, she returned to funeral service at Speers
Funeral Chapel, also in Regina and enjoyed 11 fulfilling years there.
Roberta has three married daughters, and
nine grandchildren so her time away from work is usually spent visiting one or
more of those families. She enjoys the
outdoors, exploring the beauty in and around Salmon Arm. She also loves to have company, sharing time
with all her new friends. Roberta is also a certified End of Life Doula offering
support to our community.
An unexpected opportunity presented itself
here in Salmon Arm and Roberta jumped at the chance to experience a total new
part of the country as well as a new group of funeral professionals, all of
which have been such a gift to her. She
continues to express her love of this work and the honor that it is! She is always open to chatting about her work,
providing education, answering questions and providing encouragement. Please
drop by Bowers anytime!
