Roberta Stein

April 5, 1942 — May 28, 2023

Roberta Stein

Roberta Stein, 81, of Atlantic, Iowa, died Sunday, May 28, 2023, at Atlantic Specialty Care.

Roberta Jean was born on April 5, 1942, in Woodbine, Iowa, the daughter of Robert Louis and Bertha Catherine (Felber) Clements.  She was born on Easter Sunday and was therefore always called Bunny by her family.  Roberta graduated from Kearney High School. 

She was united in marriage to Ray Stein on September 23, 1961; four children were born to this union, to whom she was a devoted mother.  In 1976, the family moved from Harlan to Atlantic.

Roberta was a supervisor at Cass Incorporated for 26 years and in retirement a greeter at Wal-Mart for 13 years. 

She rarely sat idle, always doing something to keep busy, but when she did it was usually with a book in her hand; her family described her as a ferocious reader.  Roberta enjoyed weaving baskets, crocheting, crosswords and word searches.  There was no question that Roberta loved and would do anything for her children, but she would share they were a little stubborn; well, the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree!

Roberta was a ray of sunshine to many and will be deeply missed by her son, Jeff Stein; sisters, Barbara (Duane) Timperley, Claudia Anderson and Mary (Art) Huff; close friend, Calvin Krause; and extended family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Bertha Clements; daughters, Jackie Stein, Lisa Stein and Kim Clemons; and brother-in-law, Mitch Anderson, Sr.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Thursday, June 1, 2023, at Roland Funeral Home in Atlantic. Immediately following the service lunch will be served followed by burial at SS Peter and Paul Catholic Cemetery in Atlantic. Visitation with the family present will be held prior to the service at the funeral home beginning at 10:00 a.m., Thursday.
