Sheila DeRoberts1948-2024On January 17th, 2024, Sheila DeRoberts joined her husband, Frank, to watch over their family. Sheila passed away peacefully in her sleep after fighting lung cancer in 2019 and its return in 2023. She was surrounded by family including her daughter and son, Heather and Frank Jr., and her five grandchildren and great grandchild. She was also surrounded by friends, loved ones, and those who are family by choice. Sheila was born in Orange, NJ, on August 1st, 1948, to John and Jeanette Ciaramella. She grew up with five brothers. In 1968, her and Frank got married, had two children, and in 1981 moved to Oregon. Sheila was a dedicated lady of the church, a hardworking employee, but most importantly she was a loving, compassionate, kind, smart, and beautiful wife, mother, and grandma. Sheila loved doing things with her grandchildren, especially during the summers. One of her favorite things to do with her grandchildren was bring lunches and snacks to the Oregon Zoo and Children’s Museum so they could spend the whole day having fun. She enjoyed camping with them, going out for dinner with them, and overall, just loved spending time with them. She also loved sewing, crafting, baking, and just going places to walk and people watch. She was initially diagnosed with lung cancer in 2019. Supported by her family, she did radiation and chemotherapy and successfully beat cancer. After years of no signs of remission, in December 2023 there were two masses found in her lungs. She was ready to fight again and had her family ready behind her. Her health started to go quickly afterwards, and she was unable to do treatment. Sheila never stopped fighting, she never stopped living her life, and she never gave up. A rosary and service will be held on Saturday February 10th, at St. Patrick Catholic Church at 10:30am and 11am respectively.

After the Army, Ben started building pole barns. He later started his own construction company as a general contractor. When you drive around the local community you will see many barns, buildings, and projects that Ben built with tremendous pride. His customers were like family. He was also a great mechanic and fabricator. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t build. He enjoyed the outdoors, camping, and riding dirt bikes. Most of all, Ben enjoyed using his talents to help others. One day driving home from Newberg he saw an older couple broken down on the side of the road. He stopped, and after speaking with the husband, found out their RV wouldn’t be towed until the following day. Ben went back and was able to repair their RV, getting them back on the road continuing their trip to the coast. That couple was so grateful and overwhelmed. Ben’s kindness will be missed by all. A beautiful family starts with a good man. We were so blessed with Ben! He set the bar high. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He enjoyed being with his kids – he was always beside them, coaching and supporting them in their passions.
