Roberta Augostini

Roberta (Knoll) Augostini, age 80, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, died peacefully on November 16, 2022, surrounded by her loving family, in Bradenton, FL.

Roberta was born October 10, 1942, in Salinas, CA. She graduated from East High School in Rochester, NY in 1960. She worked as a legal secretary and paralegal for many years in Rochester, then in real estate after "retiring" to Bradenton, Florida in 1993. Roberta married Carl Augostini, her best friend and the love of her life in 1963. Together they especially enjoyed spending time with family, friends and their life on Anna Maria Island. She worshipped the sun, walks on the beach and bike rides on the island. She was an outstanding cook and loved to entertain and celebrate every day. She loved animals, music, reading, dining, traveling and holiday baking and decorating. Roberta was extremely proud of her children and grandchildren.

Survivors include her children and their spouses, Craig and Lisa Augostini, Carla and Derek Dobbertin; grandchildren, Nicholas (Suzy) Augostini and Louis (Mary Jacobs) Augostini; her brother, Kurt (Diane) Knoll and literally hundreds of nieces and nephews.

No memorial services are planned at this time. Brown & Sons Funeral Homes & Crematory 43rd Street Chapel is in charge of the arrangements. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, please consider contributions to Roberta’s favorite charitable organization, St. Jude’s Research Hospital.
