Roberta H. Lowe died peacefully on Feb. 21 in Venice, Fla. She was 90.

Born in Taunton on March 16, 1924 to the late Millicent and Charles Hackett, she was the devoted wife of John A. Lowe Jr., to whom she was married for 65 years.

A retired registered nurse, Roberta graduated from New England Deaconess School of Nursing in 1947. In addition to raising five children, her career included working for the Visiting Nurse Association as a private duty nurse and for many years at Planned Parenthood in Syracuse, N.Y., as its director of nursing.

A lifelong resident of the Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association in Oak Bluffs, where her family had spent summer seasons since 1842, Roberta had unique claim as a fifth generation camp grounder. Her parents Charles and Millicent Hackett and maternal grandparents Robert and Nancy Cooke owned cottages in the Camp Ground. Roberta and John purchased their own cottage in 1977. She cherished her time at their cottage, surrounded by family and friends, rocking on the porch, watching boats in the harbor, people passing by and especially sunsets over Sunset Lake.

Roberta was loved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed for her unyielding positive attitude, engaging smile, strength of spirit and zest for life.

She is survived by her devoted husband John, a daughter Nancy and her husband Casey, three sons, Craig and his wife Edie, Gary and his wife Libby and Tim and his wife Terry. She is also survived by six grandchildren, Matt and his wife Maria, Andy, Spenser, Megan, Mitchell and Josie, brother in law Charles Lowe and his wife Alice, sister in law Marcia Schutt and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her oldest son, John A. Lowe 3rd, in 1974.

A celebration of Roberta’s life was held at the Evangelical Covenant Church of Venice Isles in Venice, Fla., on Saturday, Feb. 28, attended by family and friends.

An Island celebration of her life will be held Saturday, June 27, at noon at the Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Roberta’s memory may be made to the MVCMA Tabernacle Restoration Fund.
