Roberta was born on August 12, 1939, in Pittsburgh, a daughter of the late Robert and Gladys (Surgeon) Moody.
Mrs. Tobin was a homemaker by trade, but did so much more within her community. She was a devoted member of St. Alphonsus R.C. Church, now St. Isadore the Farmer Parish, McDonald, where she participated in the choir, lectured, was a eucharistic minister, helped with many of the church dinners, and was the leader of the funeral luncheon ladies. Roberta’s helping hand did not stop here. She was an active advocate for the Heritage Public Library in McDonald, where she was able to combine her love of helping others and reading.
Surviving are her children; Jennifer (Joseph) Pollack of Aliquippa, Patrick (Karen) Tobin of Michigan, Robert Tobin of McDonald, and David Tobin of Bridgeville, grandchildren, Emily and Sean Tobin, and sisters, Junita Berthold of Florida, and Shirley Lanoue of Ohio.
Roberta is preceded in death by her loving husband John P. Tobin (2010) and her son, Mark Tobin (1980).
