Obituary for Roberta S. Ronan
Roberta Ronan, 71, of Larchmont, NY passed away peacefully on December 18, 2014.
Roberta was born and raised in the Bronx, and graduated from St. Raymond’s School, Elizabeth Seton High School, College of Mount Saint Vincent, and Monroe College School of Business. She started Cornell University School of Nursing, but left to marry her beloved husband, Martin W. Ronan, Jr.
She devoted her life to raising her four children, and actively participating in, and generously giving to, her community. A resident of Larchmont since 1976, Roberta’s volunteering included her long-time participation in the Mamaroneck school PTAs, working for many years in the Youth Employment Office at Mamaroneck High School.
She was devoted to her spiritual community, including the parish of the Sts. John and Paul Church, where she sang in the choir, was an Adult Advisor for the Teen Club, and served as a Co-President of the School of Religion and a Co-President of the Women’s Guild. At Sts. John and Paul, she scheduled the altar servers for over twenty-five years and served as coordinator for the Food Bank.
She was a Board Member of the Larchmont/Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force since its inception; worked for over twenty-five years for the late Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR; was active at Abraham House, in the South Bronx; and founded an on-line prayer chain.
Her good works were recognized by The Sarah Neuman Nursing Home, the DayStar Program, which runs the Good Counsel Home for unwed mothers on the grounds of St. Vincent’s Hospital in Harrison, and The St. Augustine’s Ladies Auxiliary and Sts. John & Paul Women’s Guild, from whom she received the Sylvia Muldoon Woman of Spirit Award in 2013.
In addition to her husband, Roberta is survived by her children, Christopher (Melissa), Sarah Boraczek (Robert), John (Victoria), and Matthew (Kimberly), her ten grandchildren – with whom she shared countless hours and adventures — and her brothers, John Sabatini (Patricia), and Richard Sabatini (Dale). She was predeceased by her father and mother, and her brother William.
