Alice Josephine Roberts

April 11, 1928 - December 31, 2018

Alice Josephine Roberts, long time resident of Salem, peacefully passed away at the age of 90 on December 31, 2018 after spending her final days surrounded by family. She is survived by her loving husband of 66 years, Frank Roberts, her six children Ken (Julie), Katie Moore (Tom), Pete (Kathleen), Pat (Patty), Matt (Lori), Joe (Monique), 15 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.


Alice was born the sixth of seven children to J Peter and Margurite Schmidt in Bismarck, ND and moved to Salem with her parents in 1936. She graduated from Sacred Heart Academy in Salem and briefly attended Oregon State University before working as a keypunch operator for the state of Oregon and later Continental airlines. Her proudest career, however, was as a wife and mother to her family. She was loved by family, friends, and her many “adopted” children and was also well-known for her baking prowess which included snickerdoodle cookies, cinnamon rolls and Boska (Easter bread).
All are invited to her Mass of Christian burial that will be celebrated at Queen of Peace Catholic Church on Monday January 7, 2019.  Rosary will begin at 10:00am with Funeral Mass at 10:30am followed by a reception in the hall. Private interment will be later at Willamette National Cemetery. One of her favorite places to visit was Mount Angel Abbey so in lieu of flowers please send donations to the Abbey Foundation of Oregon. Special thanks to Virgil T Golden Funeral Service.
