Roberta J. Bane Bashioum, 74, of West Newton, PA, returned to her heavenly Father Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020, surround by her beloved family. Roberta was born May 11, 1946 in Clairton, PA. Daughter of the late Tommy and Catherine “Kit” Bane. Roberta worked for Nutrition Inc. in West Newton for over 30 years as a cook and a Supervisor. Her true passion in life was her family. She was at her happiest when spending time with her children, her grandchildren, and her siblings. Roberta was a true matriarch who everyone could and did depend on. She tried to never miss a birthday, a graduation, or a baseball game. She found a love for travel in her later years when she road tripped across America on three separate expeditions with her brothers and sisters, seeing over 25 states. In her free time, you could always count on finding her at her weekly bingo game in Rostraver. She is preceded in death by both parents, two infant daughters – Sally A. and Nancy B. Bashioum and one sister – Ruth Demarco. She is survived by a thriving and devoted family: her loving husband of 50 years - Richard W. Bashioum of West Newton, PA, four loving children, Charlie (Robin) Bashioum, of Scottdale, Roberta (Dan) McGervey of Pittsburgh, Richard (Hillary) Bashioum of Westminster, Maryland, and Denise (Scott) Ewing of West Newton. In addition, her five siblings Patty (Corbin) Bales, Marion Bane Lewis, Robert (Jenny) Bane, Kathy (Ray) See, and Dennis (Crystal) Bane. She is also survived by her ten grandchildren Sam (Kelsea) and Matt Bashioum, Nicolas and Danny McGervey, William and Dori Bashioum, R.J. Lee and Eric Ewing, and Elliott and Sam Epstein. Lastly, she had one great-granddaughter Madison and was excitedly expecting a second. Roberta was enormously and undeniably loved by all of them and many others.
