Roberta (Bert) was an avid lover of the sea and a collector of its beautiful and unique treasures. Roberta loved adventuring to new beaches to discover their beauty with friends and family. Roberta created many special memories while on the hunt for beach glass and used the many pieces she found to create beautiful jewelry and other wire wrapped designs that those who are blessed to have, will cherish forever.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the VON, the Aberdeen Palliative Care Program, Westville Medical Clinic, Pictou Sobeys Pharmacy and the Nova Scotia Health Authority Continuing Care Program for their remarkable care and compassion.
