Nancy Jane Roberts
March 31st 1959-March 6 2023
It is with great sadness in our hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Mother, Nancy Jane Roberts in her 64th year. Cherished and dedicated Mother to Kaitlind Jane Dutrizac (Dwayne Ashley), Desiree Bernice Dutrizac, and our dear, departed sister, Rosalind Gwendolyn Dutrizac. Nancy was a loving, protective, and doting Momo to her grandchildren Kyrie and Kenzo Ashley, who loved and adored their Momo. The only daughter of Alfred Edwin and Phyllis Gwendolyn Roberts (both deceased), dearest sister to William Roberts (Tania Grimmer), Dr. Alfred Edwin Roberts (Sarah West), and Raymond and Connie Roberts. Nancy also held a special place in the hearts of her many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.
She worked for many years as a Registered Nurse at St. Joseph’s Hospital in London, ON, where she cared for and touched many hearts. Nancy’s love of music, singing, and sense of humour were remarkable. If you knew her you will recall a lovely singing voice and a great, joyful laugh – she was happiest when surrounded by family and friends. Nancy’s celebration of life will be held at O’Neil Funeral Home on Saturday, March 18th; visitation 2pm - 4pm; service 4pm - 5pm. Interment of Nancy’s ashes at Elmdale Memorial Park Cemetery in St. Thomas at a later date. If you wish to honour Nancy, donations may be made to the Ark Aid Street Mission or 519Pursuit. “I cried endlessly when you died, but I promise, I won’t let the tears mar the smiles that you’ve given me when you were alive”.
