Roberta Jane Beaton Eyberg

Roberta Jane Eyberg passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 9, 2014 in Houston at the age of 94.

She was born Jan. 10, 1920 in Corsicana to Walter Beaton and Roberta Whitaker Beaton and grew up among a loving family, including her sister, Katherine, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Roberta spent many of her early years on the family farm before moving into town. She attended Texas Women’s College in Denton before embarking on a secretarial career with an energy company in Tulsa, Okla. It was in a Tulsa church youth group that she met her husband of almost 65 years, Quentin, from Duluth, Minn. Together they lived across the globe and made life-long friends along the way — in Tulsa, Antwerp, Belgium, Le Havre, France, Kansas, Canada, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Southern California and the Washington D.C. area. Roberta and Quentin chose to spend their retirement years in Woodcreek, Wimberley, Texas where they enjoyed traveling, golf, bridge, new friends and the hill country pace. She often awed us with her uncanny ability to accurately recite the dates and addresses of the 48 moves she and Quentin had made. They continued to travel to interesting places like Prince Edward Island, the Panama Canal, New Zealand and Duluth, Minn.

Roberta was a beautiful and gracious Southern lady with bright blue eyes, and a sweet smile that made an impression on everyone. Roberta was a loving and dedicated wife, mother and homemaker, honing her skills as a wonderful cook and seamstress. She loved a good game of bridge, baking family meals, intimate social gatherings and being with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  

She is preceded in death by her husband, Quentin, and is survived by her children, Douglas Eyberg and wife Lynn, and Sarah Siniaho, her grandchildren, John Peissel and wife Estrella, Christina Pastrana and husband Janer, Eric Eyberg and wife Lethurzia, Brynn Siniaho and Alicia Siniaho, and her great-grandchildren, Mayra Nunez, Adriana Peissel, Francesca Peissel, Brayden Eyberg and Valentina Eyberg. She is also survived by her beloved sister, Katherine Sharp, and nephew Dick Sharp and wife Marge, as well as brother-in-law, John Eyberg and wife Margaret.

 A memorial service will be held at Chapel in the Hills, Wimberley at 3 p.m. Saturday, March 22, 2014. In lieu of flowers or other gifts, please consider contributions to the American Heart Association or the Alzheimer’s Association.
