Roberta J. (Campbell Rose) Porter, 82, of Covington, passed away peacefully on Friday, Aug. 2, 2019, at Pruitt Health in Lilburn. She was born Aug. 26, 1935 in Sheldonville, Massachusetts. A long-time resident of New Hampshire, she moved to St. Petersburg and Pinellas Park, Florida in the early '80s before moving to Covington.
She was a faithful parishioner at First Baptist Church of Covington.
Roberta spent her time building friendships, many of which lasted a lifetime. If you knew her you could be counted as a friend. A stop at any of the Gulf Beaches was a great way for her to start a day of flitting from one friend to another to play cards or just for a chat.
She was predeceased by her parents, John and Deborah (Lampky) Campbell; and husbands, John Porter and Raymond Rose Sr.; brothers, John Campbell, Jerry Campbell and Leonard Campbell; and sister Lillian Ciccone.
She is survived by her son, Raymond Rose and his wife, Christine Dubois, of Manchester New Hampshire; daughter, Donna Price and husband, Gregory Price, of Stone Mountain; grandchildren, Jeffrey Rose and Kristine Freirose and her wife Anne; great grandchildren, Madelyn Rose, William Rose, Star Freirose and Aidan Shea Motola.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial contribution to the building fund of First Baptist Church of Covington or a charity of your choice.
