FRAMINGHAM – Roberta A. (Herlihy) Guertin, 84, a longtime resident of Framingham, passed away from natural causes on Wednesday, May 18, 2022.

Roberta was born in Worcester, the daughter of the late Robert D. And Dorothy A. (Roche) Herlihy and she was the divorced widow of George P. Guertin.

 She was a graduate of St. Mary’s High School in Milford and spent her early married life in Maryland. Later in life she moved to Framingham to be closer with her best friend and sister, the late Margaret Davitt.

Roberta was a manager at General Cinema, and she was voted 1992 Woman of the Year in Framingham.  Her work and fundraising for the homeless was legendary. She made lifelong friends along the way and never forgot a birthday, anniversary, or special memory. Bringing joy to others was her greatest joy.

Roberta is survived by her children, Stephen M. Guertin and his wife, Sharon Guertin of Maryland. She is also survived by her son Patrick M. Guertin and his wife Mary Guertin of Mendon, her grandchildren, Jennifer Bowen and her husband Jason and Alyssa Auman and her husband Nicholas, and her great grandchildren Isabella and Liam Bowen all of Maryland.

 She is also survived by her granddaughters Shannon Guertin of Worcester and Lauren Guertin of Bellingham.

 Family and friends will honor and remember Roberta’s life privately.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Norton Funeral Home, Framingham.
