Roberta Farley

Feb. 5, 1916 — April 14,2013

Roberta Agnes Farley (Pat) was born to Robert and Agnes Buzza on Feb. 5, 1916, in Sacramento, Calif. She was welcomed into Heaven on the morning of April 14, 2013, after a quiet, final visit with beloved son, Robert and his wife, Maryanne. She was 97 years old and lived a full life as a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother and friend to many.

Pat built a life and raised a family with her husband of more than 50 years, James “JC” Carlisle Farley. Together they served this great country through the U.S. Navy and Southern Pacific Railroads during World War II. Their patriotic and civic duties took them many places until they settled in their dream home in beautiful Council, Idaho. Pat spent her retirement engaging in favorite activities: cooking (lots of wild game and fish to be had with “JC” around), crocheting, amassing a huge collection of Avon bottles and owl “bric-a-brac,” or playing a spirited game of “Aggravation” with her grandchildren. Her life was characterized by her service to loved ones, friends and neighbors. Her dedication to volunteer work in the community and at church won her the title of “Woman of the Year.”

Pat later relocated to Placerville, Calif., to be closer to family. She continued her volunteer work at Snowline Hospice until her health no longer allowed her to do so. She was preceded in death by her husband, James; and her grandson, Jerry. She is survived by her only son, Robert; his wife, Maryanne; grandchildren, Richard Farley and Dianne Heidemann and their families; step-grandchildren, Sean and Erin Denny and Susan Wilder and her family; and her devoted caregivers, Russell and Rebecca Friend. She will be greatly missed by all who she loved and befriended.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, May 3, at 2 p.m., at Chapel of the Pines Funeral Home in Placerville, Calif. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made in Pat’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association, 1455 Response Road, Suite 190, Sacramento, CA 95815, or online at alz.org. Online condolences may be posted at chapelofthepinesfunerals.com.
