Roberta was born on January 5, 1949 in St. Paul, Minnesota to parents Arthur and Caroline (Marlow) Case. She grew up in her family home in St. Paul spending many hours and days hanging out with her cousins and friends. In her 20’s she attended a truck driving school and got a job working for Midland.
In 1977 she met the love of her life, Mark Thomas Reynolds, and they married on April 29, 1978. They lived their first year of marriage in Little Canada before moving to their home in Mora in the fall of 1979. Together they raised two children, whom she home-schooled through the 12th grade. As a family, they enjoyed camping and many vacations together. One of her favorite things was coaching H.E.A.R.T. baseball. Roberta enjoyed watching baseball, playing cards, fishing, and knitting. She put God first in her life but also loved her husband, children, and grandchildren dearly. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
