Alona May Roberts, 86, died peacefully on Monday, March 25, 2019 at Ware Presbyterian Village in Oxford, PA surrounded by family.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 66 years, Kenneth S. Roberts; son Stephen K. Roberts (Sarah); daughters Glenda M. Reynolds (Charles), Melissa E. Watson (Frank) and Stacey A. Floyd; seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her four younger siblings and one granddaughter.

Born in Sayre, PA, Alona was the daughter of the late Owen and Mabel Fassett. She graduated from Athens High School in Athens, PA in 1950. In her younger years, Alona loved riding Indian Chief Motorcycles and was an avid bowler.

She and Ken were married in 1953 and moved to East Smithfield, PA to start their family. Alona was a telephone switchboard operator and also worked in the SRU school cafeteria for a number of years. In 1969, the family relocated to southeastern PA, where she was a member of the New Garden PTA, the Kennett Square Presbyterian Church and later the Union Presbyterian Church.

She was an excellent seamstress and enjoyed doing counted cross-stitch, crocheting, puzzles and above all, spending time with her family.

A memorial service for family and friends will be held at a later date.
