Roberta H. Lancaster passed peacefully from this life into her heavenly home on Saturday August 6, 2011.

She was born on June 2, 1928 in Fountain, Colorado to the late Robert & Helen Christian. After graduating from Fountain High School, she moved to Colorado Springs where she met and married her soul mate of 57 years Everett Lancaster. They were blessed to have 4 children together. Roberta began her 40 year career at Mountain Bell (Qwest) where she faithfully served as a long distance operator.

Generous, relational, cheerful, encouraging, compassionate, true friend to all, zealous for life, passionate for Christ, lover of family and friends. These are all words that perfectly describe Roberta.

Grace Presbyterian church was richly blessed to have Bobbie, as she was called by her friends, service as both a regular church member and a faithful deaconess.

She is survived by her sister Margaret Gililland, 2 brothers Jerry and Ron Christian, 4 children Debbie (Joe) Farrington, Diana (Dave) Sobotka, Mark (Julie) and Brian (Jennifer) Lancaster. She also had 9 grandchildren.

We cherish the wonderful memories of Roberta and she will be sadly missed because of the lasting impact she made both as a prayer warrior and faithful friend to alI.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Grace Presbyterian Church, 2511 North Logan Ave., Colorado Springs, Colorado 80907.

A Visitation will be held on Friday, August 12, 2011 from 12:30pm to 1:30pm with the Entombment to follow. Both will be held at Memorial Gardens Cemetery and Funeral Home. The Memorial Service will take place on Saturday, August 13, 2011 at 10:00am at Grace Presbyterian Church.
