On the morning of April 1st, 2016, Roberta passed away after a year-long battle with CJD (Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease) while residing in Galt, CA and surrounded by family. She was 60 years old. Roberta was born in Sacramento to Lawrence and Bonnie Wall. She graduated from Mira Loma High School and met her husband, Paul, of 37 years while attending UC Davis. Roberta graduated in nutrition and was a Registered Dietitian and Diabetes Educator, working in area hospitals and for the Stanislaus County.

Roberta is known for her kind and gentle spirit. She loved animals and saved every stray that crossed her path. She was an avid gardener and fabulous baker. She was involved in her community and enjoyed giving back by helping those in need. After returning back to California last year, grandson Blake was born to Scott and his wife Trinity.
