In Loving Memory of Olivia L. Roberts



August 9, 1957 – September 11, 2020

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Olivia L. Roberts. Olivia was born in New Orleans, moving to Seattle in 1969 with her family after Hurricane Camille. She graduated from Garfield High School in 1975. She had a successful career in both marketing and sales. She encouraged all to reach their highest limits while still being graceful and kind. She never met a stranger befriending all that had the pleasure to be in her presence.

She was a loving mother, sister, aunt, grandmother and a friend to all. She is survived by her children (Robert, Shawnda, Curt & Michael); siblings (Walter & Georgia); grandchildren (Ciara, Robert, Kelly, Ki’Mon, Za’Niya, Cur’shyun, Zy’ren, Shalaya & Curt); nieces (Shawntell and Rainell) and nephews (Walter, Stuart & Melvin).


She will be laid to rest at Washington Memorial Park at 12pm on Monday, September 28th. For additional Memorial Information, please contact the family at bland.shawnda@gmail.com.

Thanks to everyone for their prayers and support during this time.
