Roberta Loringer

(November 1, 1935-June 12, 2013)

According to Oscar Wilde people are either charming or tedious…Roberta was never tedious.  Gifted with a sense of charisma that simply enveloped those around her a stranger became a dear friend within a few minutes.  This was even apparent during a casino trip; the normally statuesque and imposing Pit Bosses instantly became warm and approachable when they met her.  Recently, after moving to Mt. Laurel she began frequenting Aziza’s Restaurant.  It wasn’t long until the folks there saw her in the same light, they adopted her as extended family and vice versa.  They would host their Thanksgiving dinner in their restaurant even though they were closed as well as hold their Easter Egg Hunts.

But, if she treated the world like family, she treated her family like gold.  Sunday mornings were for family breakfasts.   Her favorite holiday was Thanksgiving Dinner with the entire family.   Coming together monthly with her “Sorority Girls” for over 55 years to just catch up on life and chat, which included three generations of family.   In her years of driving the school bus she gained the nickname “TK” (Turtle Killer) in reference to when she could not swerve her school bus fast enough to save a turtle.  Watching her grandkids play ball even converted her into a ravenous Phillies fan, she once had a serious health crisis, but waited until after the game to seek medical attention.

Roberta is survived by her children: Bob (Donna) of Willingboro, Jim (Kathleen) of Delran and Trish Frenz of Burlington and by her daughter-in-law Kathy (the late Chuck) as well as by her 11 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren, with 2 more on the way.  She is also survived by, her cousin Billy Ludmann, her special friend Fred Wetherby and her many, many friends.

Come celebrate Roberta’s 77 charismatic years (Nov. 1, 1935-June 12, 2013) Saturday from 9 AM at the Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside, where the service will be at 11:30.  Interment private.  In lieu of flowers memorial gifts may be made to Samaritan Hospice 3 Eves Dr., Suite 300 Marlton, NJ 08053.

    Known to all of us at Burlington County Special Services, “Ro” was one of the nicest and kindest lady’s I have ever met. She was cheerful and funny and her presence was, at times, the only way I made it through a really rough work day! My prayers are with her family at this difficult time – I will definitely miss you, Ro.

She made all of us feel like family. I will always love you Mom Loringer. You will always be in my heart. Give brother Chuck a big hug for me. Xoxo Rest in Peace ♥

    I am so sorry to learn of the loss of your mom. I remember how she lit up the room at the Brody’s annual Christmas Eve party or at Janie’s holiday bash! Your whole family is in my thoughts and prayers. I know that Chuck is up in heaven and welcomed her with open arms.

    Bert–hope you can bring the Phils some angels and your favorite “pop-up” Jimmy.

    You were always fun and could take all my insults with a smile, even when I’d steal your walker.

    May God and all the Angels guide you in this next level!

    Roberta…such a warm friendly lady! To my dear friends, the Loringers, Know that I am thinking of you. I’d like to share my very fav quote. It was written by Dr. Seuss and has helped me along the way…”Don’t cry ’cause it’s over…Smile ’cause it happened.” Hope your wonderful memories make you smile every time you think of your mom.
    Love to all of you! Donna D.

    Neither Google nor Google Scholar proffer an API — for love nor legal tender, as away as I can confess, nucleus me to it if I am inexact — that would let us do a Google Search and then sort/filter/enhance the results to count up value and purchase in scrutinize and in brainy tools.

    Totally unallowable as a search clarification representing the scholarly literature. Over of the opportunity cost to research and research tools, and all the things that recovered research tools facilitate.

    Every once in awhile I google My Daddy Chuck and my Grandma Roberta just to see such lovely and sweet things written about them. I’ve grown up knowing that my family is huge, not just relatives but friends. Grams and Dad were so much alike, always making people smile and laugh, building relationships and making memories all through out there travels. These were two people this world and all of us were beyond blessed to share our lives with. I know there together watching over all of us, laughing at how crazy we still are even without them here. Grams was known as TK the turtle killer, a nickname she got from some of her friends. and Daddy was known as my teddy bear. both incredibly loving, forgiving, sweet, hilarious and oh so strong people; always putting others ahead of themselves. I love these two more then words can ever describe and they were so lucky to have such loving group of friends and family. The world lost the most outstanding two people i ever been so lucky to know, but i can smile knowing that there still here watching us all grow. I love and miss you both thank you for leaving us with so many fond memories of you two! <3 xoxo
