Florence Marie (Savarese) Roberts, aged 89, went home to the Lord peacefully at her beloved daughter Donna’s home; where she has resided for the last 8 years on June 24th 2020, with Donna, Nicole and Courtney by her side. Florence, or “Wawa,” as she was affectionately referred to by her granddaughters was born on November 19th, 1930 to Louis and Rose Savarese in New York City. Florence moved to Auburn at a young age with her family. She resided here for all of her life. She worked as a nurse’s aide at Auburn Nursing Home until the time of her retirement. She enjoyed watching baseball and eating ice cream with her grandchildren.
Florence is survived by her 4 children; Richard, Steven (Carol), Mark (Paula), and Donna Christina (Joseph), her grandchildren, Timothy, Bryce, Nicole (Ryan), Courtney (Joseph) and Margaret (Andy) and her cherished great grandchildren Anthony, Adeline, Dominick and Joey. She is also survived by her niece Kathy and her daughter Tina with whom she enjoyed spending time with.
She was predeceased in 2001 by her loving husband, Laverne E. Roberts, in addition to her mother, father and her sister Anna.
