Margaret Roberta Nese

Passed away peacefully in her home on Friday July 3rd, 2020. Although she lived in Pittsburgh much of her life, she grew up with two sisters and four brothers in Lumberton, MS. To the world, Roberta was kind, generous and most importantly forgiving. To those who knew and loved her, she was simply Gram and she wore that title with pride.

At an early age, Roberta had dreams of becoming a stewardess so she could travel to new places. She found a better dream when she met the love of her life, Bud, became a mom and grandmother and still got to see much of the world.

She is preceded in death by her husband Joseph Anthony Nese, Jr.; parents, Braxton and Elnora Jones; three brothers B.B., Cecil and Jimmy Jones; and sister Dorothy Jones.

She is survived by her children Kathy Jo Nese, Debbie Ann Nese and Joseph Anthony Nese, III; her grandchildren Joie, Niki (Mark), David, Anthony (Antoinette), Alysha(Ric), Angela (Frank); great-grandchildren Julia, Aubrey, Anthony Jr., Chase, Carmella, Parker, Scarlett and Valentina; A sister Mary and Brother Roland(Shirley) and host of nieces and nephews

In the end, she fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith.
