Remembering Debbie Roberts

The Garden Club of the Back Bay lost one of its most active members on January 15, 2014, when Debbie Roberts passed away suddenly while on vacation with her husband Bill in Hanoi, Vietnam.  Debbie, a resident of Beacon Street and Nantucket, served as Corresponding Secretary of the Club, and was a volunteer for the annual Wreath Project and for the Twilight Garden Party.  In addition to her husband, she leaves behind her son Brian and his wife Becky, her son Tyler and his wife Kelly, and two grandchildren, Owen and Fisher.  In lieu of flowers, donations in Debbie’s memory may be made to The Debbie Roberts Memorial Fund at the Community Foundation of Nantucket ( or as a tribute donation to Doctors Without Borders (  We mourn her loss.
