Farrell Denise Pelletier

May 5, 1956 - March 10, 2018

Farrell passed away suddenly after a short, but hard fought battle with cancer.  She was born and raised in California; moving to Oregon in 1974, where she spent the past 30 years with her husband, raising their family in Keizer, Oregon.  She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend to many. 
She is survived by her husband of 44 years, Robert Pelletier of Keizer; her two children, Bob Nita Pelletier of Keizer, and Jennifer Pelletier of Keizer; her two grandchildren, McKenzie and Addison; and her five siblings, Shelly Larry Robberstad of Chico, CA, Michael Joyce Robberstad of West Salem, Debra Robberstad of Silverton, Sharon Sweaney of Silverton, and Cynthia Andy Koch of Hurricane, UT. 
She is preceded in death by her parents, Harold Robberstad and Lena Taylor.
The family would like to thank Salem Health Oncology Department and Dr. Renee Prins of Oregon Oncology Specialists for their kindness and determination to help Farrell up until the very end.  Service arrangements are being held until a later date to allow family time to process and grieve their sudden loss.  Farrell will be deeply missed by those that knew and loved her.

A Celebration of life will be Saturday April 28th at 10:30am at Broadway Commons 1300 Broadway St NE in the Mexico Room, which is on the third floor.

Gone too soon, but will forever live on in our hearts.
I love you sis.

You were an amazing person!  There when l needed someone to open their heart and home. You loved me like l was your own. Thank you so much for the memories and security. You have the biggest heart of anyone l have had the honor of having touched my life. l might not have been around lately but l have NEVER EVER forgot when you brought to my life. 

So sorry for your loss. . May she rest in peace. Glad we reconnected. It will always be a memorial connection. After 49 years we met again. Maybe again we'll meet in heaven.

I love you, Mom.

Farrell is one of the kindest people I have ever known. My heart broke when I heard she was gone. I will never forget her or the time we spent together at State Farm. Rest in peace my friend.

Farrell touched so many lives, both with her beautiful spirit and also her love of art. I am very proud to have been her "Sis" for many years now. We were so alike in a myriad of ways. It pains me greatly not to have her in my world now, but I have great faith in the resurrection and look forward to seeing her again. You will forever reside in my heart...
