God and family were the most important to Roberta Lundquist of East Portland.
Roberta was born in Colville, Washington to Johnny and Maureen (Watson) Lundquist. She was raised with two siblings in SE Portland and graduated from Centennial High School in 1979. She enjoyed roller skating, swimming, and close friends during her adolescent and young adult years. Her heart was her family. She raised four strong independent daughters and completely adored their spouses and grandchildren. She would often say God sent me the best son in laws. Roberta was a mother that was present and never missed an event, for her children and grandchildren. She would often reminisce and tell stories of her childhood and life with her siblings; these stories never seemed to get old.
Roberta enjoyed going to the movies, live concerts and going out to eat. She also enjoyed, gardening, crafts and playing card and board games with her grandchildren. If she wasn't working she was with her grandchildren. Faith and her church family were extremely important to her, as well. She was a member of Greater Grace Christian Church and would often volunteer and spend time with the community there.
