AUSTINTOWN - Roberta Kay Gibson McNab, 72, passed away peacefully in her sleep early Monday morning, Jan. 4, 2021, at her home.
Roberta, who was affectionately known to many as “BobbieDee,” was born May 17, 1948, in Uniontown, Pa., and was a daughter of the late Robert and Kathleen Talbert Gibson. She was a 1966 graduate of Albert Gallatin High School in Point Marion, Pa., and came to this area shortly after her graduation.
BobbieDee was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother who also worked outside the home. In her younger years she worked as a cook and waitress at many local restaurants, including Michelangelo’s, The Royal Oaks, The Ohio Pig House, The Old Dutch Mill, The Boatyard, and the Covelli Center, and more recently, she owned and operated her own cleaning service.
She enjoyed cooking and sharing food with family and friends, and she liked caring for the elderly, including providing meals for several of her older friends. She was a member of the Youngstown Dart Association, and loved tending to her vegetable and flower garden.
Bobbie leaves her husband of 31 years, John A. McNab, whom she married on her birthday in 1989; her daughter, Danielle (Bo) DeSicy Wortman of Lexington, S.C.; two granddaughters, Brooke (Jason) Smith and Brittany Wortman (David Campbell); a great-grandson, Nolan Lafayette; a great-granddaughter, Rylee Campbell; a brother, Ronald Gibson of Point Marion, Pa.; a sister, Jane (Lewis) Taylor of Point Marion; and several nieces and nephews, including Jonathan and Julie, and Christopher and Tara.
Three brothers, Patrick, Mark, and Arthur Gibson, are deceased.
Due to the current pandemic conditions, there will be no calling hours at this time, but a memorial service will be held at a later date.
Please keep Bobbie and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
Mrs. McNab’s family thanks Visiting Physicians, Comfort Keepers (especially Susan), and Traditions Health Hospice, for the kindness shown and care given to BobbieDee and her family.
