“For a mother is the only person on Earth who can divide her love among all her children and each child still have all her love.” Author unknown
Heaven gained another angel on Monday, January 22, 2018, Roberta W. “Bobbie” Peters, who passed away unexpectedly in her 79th year at her residence in Mountville. Bobbie worked as a server most of her life in various restaurants: J.C Penney’s, Woods Edge, Manor Plaza, Willow Valley and most recently, Dutch Apple. She was an amazing woman who loved life and spent each day enjoying it to the fullest. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family and many friends. She greatly enriched her family’s lives by attending at holidays, family get-togethers, milestone achievements, every athletic event, (rain, sleet, or snow), and travels to New York City, the Shore, Cape Cod, Aruba, and Disney World. Bobbie was quite the social butterfly and loved spending her days with her many friends playing cards, eating meals, and chatting. She was an avid Eagles and Phillies fan, and watched every game that she could. She warmly shared her smile with both friends, and strangers and generously had a way of helping people by putting other’s needs before her own. She was a longtime member of Hempfield United Methodist Church.
Bobbie is survived by her daughter: Sherie J. Fisher, Mountville. Sons: Larry Fisher, Landisville; Kent W. (companion: Jane Flemming) Peters, East Petersburg; and Jeffrey S. (Lisa) Peters, Mountville. Grandchildren: Kristin Coleman; Doug Fisher; Colin, Cole, Asher, and Quinn Peters. One brother: David Leas, Lancaster. She was preceded in death by her mother: Violet Neudorff and her son: Lance E. Fisher, Clinton, MD.
Roberta leaves a legacy of many memories, love, kindness, and faith that will continue to live through the many lives she touched.
