Helen P. Roberts COOPERSTOWN - Helen "Pat" Roberts, a longtime resident of Cooperstown, died April 12, 2018, at Absolut Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Endicott. She was 93.
Born May 28, 1924, in Lowville, Pat was the daughter of John and Anna (Kosdemba) Paterek.
After graduating from high school, she attended nursing school and became a registered nurse. She moved to Cooperstown and was employed for many years at Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital.
Soon after she came to Cooperstown, she met Lloyd A. Roberts, who was working as a room clerk and bookkeeper at The Cooper Inn and The Otesaga Hotel. On April 19, 1952, Pat and Lloyd were united in marriage at a ceremony in Roxbury.
During her years in Cooperstown, Pat served as a caregiver to young and old alike for several area families. A faithful and devoted member of the Cooperstown United Methodist Church, Pat was a member of the United Methodist Women. She especially enjoyed quilting and knitting and was a member of Prayerfully Made, a knitting group at the Clark Sports Center. Pat also volunteered her time with the Bassett Auxiliary.
Pat is survived by one son, Donald Roberts; and a granddaughter, Chelsea.
She was predeceased by her husband, Lloyd, who died Oct. 22, 1992; and their son, Timothy John Roberts, who died unexpectedly July 4, 1996, in Germany, at the age of 42.
