Order Flowers now for guaranteed delivery before Roberta's visitation.
Wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt who was very very loved by her surviving family, Raymond (Pete) Verville (husband), Patricia Verville (daughter), Brad Barthell (son-in-law), Cathie Dill (daughter), Don Dill (son-in-law), Cindie Verville (daughter), Todd Fellman (son-in-law), and Ella Fellman (granddaughter). She is preceded in death by Connie Verville (daughter).
Roberta was born in Walhalla ND in 1929. She and Pete lived in several places in the United States in an attempt to nurture her adventurous spirit. She spent the last several years back in Walhalla ND where she passed away, age 91, peacefully on October 31, 2020.
After graduating from Walhalla High School, Roberta earned her RN degree from St. Joseph's School of Nursing in Fargo ND (1951). She practiced as a Nurse for several years in several different parts of the country, then finished her working career as a Dental Hygienist in Chatfield MN. Roberta was a pioneer at balancing work life and home life for her family long before it was the norm.
Roberta was an amazing mother in so many ways, a caring devoted wife, a caretaker for all, not to mention an AMAZING cook. But, what she loved most of all was being a grandmother to a granddaughter who thought the world of her.
Due to current health concerns, the family will not be having visitation or a service at this time. We ask that you take a moment to think about one way Roberta made you smile at some point in time, and possibly share that memory with someone else.
Condolences may be expressed through a memorial contribution to Pembilier Nursing Center, Walhalla ND 58282.
I have so many great memories of my Aunt, She always had a smile on her face and always in the kichen! I remember a time in Chatsfield,MN. when she all the cousins in the bath tub after a day on the farm, nothing but legs and black water.She always made time for me when i came to visit, she holds a loving spot in my heart.

Roberta was a very kind person. She was my neighbor growing up in Chatfield Mn. We broke a couple windows of their camper and shed out back (playing football or baseball) and Pete or Roberta never even yelled. I am sure Pete had it fixed by the next day. Always a pleasant smile and she bought everything I ever tried selling her as a kid. Such a great family and Roberta just brings fond memories of my childhood. Rest in Peace

Roberta was always kind and giving. She made delicious sticky buns. After dinner we would often play cards and listen to a good story or spirited joke. She could tell a good story and make the best pies. We love you Bert. You were number one.

I remember visiting Roberta and Pete as a child on our many family visits to ND, then in LH and again on our trips to see Grandpa Leo again in Walhalla. What a sweet woman full of humor and the love she shared with Pete was so beautiful. Rest In Peace, precious soul.
