Rita Roberts

January 6, 1938 — August 28, 2021


On Saturday, August 28, 2021, after a long illness, Rita Carboni Roberts passed away in Littleton, CO.  Rita was born on January 6, 1938 in Pittsburgh and lived in Pittsburgh for most of her life.

Rita was a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and was a teacher for Pittsburgh Public Schools for 38+ years.

She is preceded in death by her husband, John T. Roberts.  Rita leaves behind two daughters, Shelley Driver and Mary Elizabeth Graff; two sons-in-law, Timothy Driver and Michael Graff; and four grandchildren, Zachary Driver, Caroline Driver, Aaron Graff and Casey Graff.
