Marilyn Roberts, 79


M arilyn Roberts passed away at her home on Saturday, Aug. 21, 2010, following a short illness.
Marilyn was born on Oct. 9, 1930, in Saginaw, Mich., the daughter of Adin W. and Antoinette (Martuch) Lewis.
Marilyn was employed for many years as an accountant for Rising & Nelson Slate Co. in West Pawlet, Vt., and also as a secretary for Paul Douglas, Esq.
Marilyn had the distinction of being the first female member of the Board of Selectmen in the town of Pawlet. As a young girl, she was an avid equestrian. She loved traveling and had the privilege of doing so throughout the world with her husband, Ernie. Places she was particularly fond of were Spain, Africa, Morocco and the Panama Canal. And even though she was a seasoned world traveler, she still was drawn to rides on back roads in our area. Marilyn was a member of St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Granville.
Marilyn was predeceased by a son, Robert L. Burdick in 2004, and her husband, Harold “Bill” Burdick, in 2000.
Marilyn was blessed with the love and companionship of Ernest Roberts, whom she married in 2005, and who survives her. She is also survived by a son, William Burdick; a beloved daughter-in-law, Leslie Tarbell; a granddaughter, Lauren Sady of Granville; and a sister, Joanne Sharp of Detroit, Mich. Upon her marriage to Ernie, Marilyn’s family circle grew to encompass Ernie’s seven children and their families.
A funeral Mass was celebrated on Wednesday, Aug. 25, at 11 a.m. at St. Mary’s Church, 23 Bulkley Ave., Granville, with the Rev. Thomas Zelker presiding. Calling hours were held Tuesday, Aug. 24, at the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville.
