Cheryl K. Roberts

Cheryl K. Roberts, 75 died September 16, 2020 in her residence. Mrs. Roberts was born January 17, 1946 in Braddock, Pennsylvania to Ann Helen Krivanski. Cheryl was a high school graduate of Swissvale High. After high school, she married her late husband, Robert Roberts, in 1965 and they would have celebrated 55 years together this year!

In 1967, she had her beloved late daughter, Colleen. That’s when she decided to be a homemaker first and then found herself working as a dental hygienist for 15 years before making the big move in the early 80s. Mrs. Roberts and her family would move to the Outer Banks, where they would vacation every year.

Over the years, Cheryl would work as a clerk at Jockey’s Ridge State Park until she retired. As the years moved on, Cheryl would become a loving “Grammy” to two grandchildren; Jessica Merritt (Chris) of Colington, NC and Cody Hill of Kill Devil Hills, NC and two great-grandchildren, Lilly and Ryder Merritt. Cheryl also leaves behind her beloved sister, Kathleen Allen of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The family will hold a private memorial service. A small gathering at the Merritt residence was held on Monday, September 21, 2020 at noon. Please sign to online register at www.gallopfuneralservices.com. Gallop Funeral Services, Inc.
