Roberta Retrum

Roberta Michelle Retrum, 72, of Eagle River, passed away at Marshfield Medical Center on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022. She was born in Milwaukee on July 29, 1950. She was the daughter of the late Michael and Norma (Farris) Popek.

Roberta worked at several different jobs throughout her life but enjoyed doing accounting-type work the most. In more recent years, she enjoyed chatting with her friends on Facebook and getting involved in politics. She was a volunteer driver at the ADRC and enjoyed helping out other people as much as she could. Roberta also enjoyed gambling and met some of her great friends while doing it.

Roberta is survived by her daughters, Stephanie (Vaughn) Robinson and Bonnie (Jesse) Davis. She is also survived by four grandchildren, Mykala (Tyler) Chandler, Perry Smith Jr., Mackenzie and Carter Davis. She was also blessed with a great-grandchild, Jayce. She is also survived by her sister, Sandy Giemza, along with nieces, nephews and other relatives.

Roberta was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas Retrum, her parents Michael and Norma Popek, her brother Michael Popek, sister Louise Rodriguez, and her sister Kathleen Thornton.

A celebration of life will take place at a later time.

Mid Wisconsin Cremation Society is assisting the family at this time. Online condolences may be expressed at MWCS.WS.
