Peacefully on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 at the age of 60. Daughter of the late Patricia Kealey and Gerald King. Beloved wife of Gregory Yeldon. Cherished mother of Allison (Oliver Platzen) of Hudson, Christopher (Madeline Bongers) of Ottawa, Ontario, Sean (Allison Milne) of Ottawa, Ontario, Erin of Wallace, Nova Scotia, Kelsey of Fernie, British Columbia, and Liam of Hudson. Loving grandmother of Josephine, Elias, Freya, Beatrice, Caspar, and William. Dear sister of Kathy McSheffrey (Jim), Caroline Casey (Bill), Geraldine Low (Philip), David King (Heather Riopelle), Michael King (Paula), and Maryanne King (Paul Conlin).
Roberta was an adoring wife, a devoted mother, a loving grandmother (Mango), a soul mate to many, a dear friend to everyone she met. The breadth and scope of her caring and generosity were enormous, from her beloved town of Hudson, to her hometown of Ottawa, to her special Cape Breton Island and beyond. She was a saint walking amongst us. Her faith was her foundation, so we will gather and collectively celebrate her life with a Memorial Mass at a later date this year.
Family and friends may pay respects below. A private Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Saint Thomas Aquinas Parish on Monday, March 29th at 4 pm. A live-stream broadcast of the mass will be available on the Parish’s website.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to The Pure Art Foundation, a cause dedicated to children and families in Peru that was very dear to Roberta’s heart. www.pureartfoundation.org/robertayeldon
