Obituary for Dorothea Roberts

July 14, 1950 - May 14, 2017
Eagleville, Pennsylvania | Age 66


Dorothea Roberts recently of Eagleville went home to the Lord peacefully on Mother's Day, Sunday May 14. Born on July 14, 1950 to Jay and Irene Battle (nee Holiday) in Philadelphia, she spent much of her childhood in Orange, Virginia.

Dorothea was the beloved mother to her devoted and loyal daughter Zenita Henderson. Dorothea lived in Montgomery county for over 40 years, residing in Blue Bell, Horsham and most recently Eagleville. She worked for Ford Motor Company, Sun Oil, Sperry Univac, Philadelphia Bulletin, Decision Data and EDPAC in various positions across her career; and owned a neighborhood restaurant in Philadelphia in the mid-seventies. Dorothea had a deep passion for human rights, politics, and before her illness volunteered with Montgomery County Emergency Services, Inc., but her true joy was spending time with her daughter. Zenita and Dorothea had a special and inseparable bond; they were more than just mother and daughter, they were best friends. Dorothea will be deeply missed by her family and friends.

Memorial service will be at the convenience of the family.
