Obituary of Roberta L. Marks

SILVER LAKE - Roberta Marks passed away on April 13, 2021 after a courageous battle against Pulmonary Fibrosis. She was predeceased by her parents, Louise Raymunda Leppek Ewing and Dr. Robert Thornton Ewing, her sister, Rachel Corrigan, and her brother James Ewing. Roberta is survived by her husband of 32 years, Stanley, step-sons and step-daughters, Steven and Jeannine Marks, Dr. Neal and Pamela Marks, grandchildren, Jordan, Samantha, Wyatt, Mackenna and Brady, nieces, Christine (Adolfo Rafael Galicia Rocha) Corrigan, Sharon (Allen) Stevens, nephew, Robert Corrigan, brother-in-law, Daniel Corrigan, sister-in-law, Rita Marks, and best friends, Evelyn and Richard Eshelman. Roberta was born and raised in Monroe, MI and graduated from the University of Michigan where she also received a Master’s Degree in Music. She taught music to thousands of elementary school kids throughout a 30+ year teaching career at Cuyahoga Falls City School System. She was an avid musician and accomplished in many instruments. Stanley and Roberta were married in 1988 creating a base and infrastructure for the family that would give lifelong memories for all that would be touched. They would travel the world together while Roberta would proudly put together elaborate and meticulous photo books documenting their trips. She especially loved the trips that included her grandchildren who affectionately called her “Grandma Birdie”. She never met a person she did not like, never forgot a birthday or anniversary, and was generous and caring to so many people. She loved to volunteer her time and expertise to Arizona Musicfest in Scottsdale, AZ where she and Stanley spent the winter months for the past 30 years. She also was a benefactor and volunteer to many Akron area organizations such as Stewart's Caring Place, The Akron Marathon, Good Neighbors, Summa Hospital, and Akron Children’s Hospital. Roberta’s life impacted so many people ... she will be missed. The family will be having a private ceremony. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to Holy Family Catholic Church, 3179 Kent Road, Stow, OH 44224 or Cuyahoga Falls Good Neighbors, 1742 2nd Street, Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44221.
