Roberta Parvin

Roberta Parvin died Sept. 25 at Spring Hill Manor in Grass Valley. She was 70.

A memorial service will be at 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, at First Baptist Church, 300 Main St., Nevada City.

She was born June 28, 1940, in Los Angeles, Calif., to Robert and Evelyn (Forslund) Bower.

Ms. Parvin moved to Camptonville, Calif., in 2008.

She was truly happy living quietly with wide vistas where the stars shone bright at night. She also enjoyed reading, being with her church family, attending American Baptist Women events and spoiling her two cats. She spent the last 2 1/2 years living right next to her daughter and son-in-law in Camptonville.

Ms. Parvin is survived by her daughter, Kym (Dean) Du Pont of Camptonville; and sister, Cheryl (Rudy) Rapske of Wildomar, Calif.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to an animal shelter of choice.
