December 13, 1919 ~ January 15, 2011

Roberta Geidl passed away peacefully at the Ray Hickey Hospice House in Vancouver, WA on Sat., Jan. 15, 2011. Her son Pete and dog, Lucy, took care of her at his home in Washougal, WA for two years and then she moved to Polly's Country Adult Family Home in Vancouver, WA for almost two more years. She was born on Dec. 13, 1919 to Robert and Agnes Crowley, the 1st of four children.
Roberta married Donald Geidl on April 25, 1947 in Vancouver and in May of 1954 they adopted their son, Pete Geidl.
In the late 60's and 70's, she attended Portland State University and graduated on her 54th birthday in 1973 with a Bachelor of Science degree.
She and Don liked to travel the United States and Europe until his death in 1987. Roberta continued traveling well into her 80's.
She was very active in the local democratic party for years and she also loved to play bridge anytime until her health wouldn't allow.
Roberta is survived by her son Pete and dog, Lucy; and a very good friend, Bert Williams.
As per Roberta's wishes, there will be a Celebration of Life later this spring at the home of her son in Washougal.
If you care to make a donation in her memory, please make it to the animal shelter of your choice.
