Brenda Jean Roberts, 51, from Buxton, Maine and Clinton, Tennessee, died December 26, 2018, after an eight month stay at Massachusetts General Hospital, in Boston. Brenda was surrounded by her family when her beautiful soul joined the angels.
Brenda had an adventurous spirit and loved to bicycle, hike, sky dive, zip line, travel and just enjoy nature and all it had to offer. Brenda made friends wherever she was and always made an impact on their lives. Children gravitated towards her inviting personality and she enjoyed them immensely.
She was born in Rumford, later moving to Buxton, where she attended schools and graduated from Bonny Eagle High in 1985. Brenda moved to Missouri, California and eventually settled in Tennessee in the Sevierville/Pigeon Forge area, bought a home and worked for Osh-Gosh/Carters for many years. She held the position of Manager and earned the title of Manager of the Year. Because of her health, Brenda had to leave her full time management position, and finally worked for Kirkland, shortly before moving back to Maine where her family assisted Brenda in her brave fight to recover.
In May, Brenda was admitted to Mass General, where she fought valiantly, and in true Brenda style, left a lasting and loving connection with the transplant staff and Doctors that enjoyed their daily interaction with her.
Brenda is survived by her father, Lawrence Roberts and stepmother, Janice of Buxton, mother, Roselle (Goguen) Larkin and stepfather, Roger Larkin, of Clinton, Tenn.; brother, Richard Roberts and wife, Shellie, of Jay, sister, Christina Roberts and husband, John St. Pierre, of Buxton; and her much loved fur babies.
