WEARE - WEARE - Roberta I. Townes, of Weare, NH died at home at the age of 76 on Feb. 7, 2019. Born Jan. 30, 1943 in Rochester, NH.

Daughter of the Late Robert and Irene Colburn.

She was survived by her husband of 24 years Ralph E. Townes.

Roberta is also survived by her children: Wanda (Charles) McLain, Wendie (Brad B.) Andrews, Michael Andrews, Leon (Tracy B.) Spooner, and Aris Johnson. 12 Grandchildren and 7 Great Grandchildren.

Roberta was predeceased by Mathew Andrews and Carolyn Arsenault.

Roberta grew up and went to school in Weare. She worked for the Goffstown News, and the Weare Post Office as a mail carrier for over 20 years. Most people knew her as "Bert". She was an avid golfer and won NH State Pro Am tournament in the 70's. She was a Girl Scout Leader for many years. She liked to duck and deer hunt (or run anything else down). She was always there at the ring of the phone if you needed something hemmed, swen or made. Enjoyed crocheting and knitting as well. She enjoyed going out in her flower garden with a beer and a cigar to keeps the bugs away! She's raised cows, pigs, and her latest baby laying hens.

Roberta was full of "piss and vinager". She could be very harsh with words if you made her mad, and people knew it. They loved it because she never sugar coated anything! Her door was always open to anyone for any reason. If you needed something and she had it, she'd give it to.

SERVICES: A graveside service will be held in the spring at the convenience of the family.
