Obituary for ROBERTA C. KENT

Roberta Catherine Smith Kent was born December 20, 1918 to the late William and Sarah Rebecca Smith in Calvert County Maryland. On November 11, 2012, Roberta transitioned this life to be with the Lord from the Calvert County Nursing Center in Prince Frederick Maryland, where she resided for over 15 years. Roberta, affectionately known as Sis, Aunt Berta, and Aunt Bitten was the second of 6 siblings. She was educated in Calvert County public schools and later attended Beauty School in Washington, DC. Roberta worked as a domestic worker and later became a licensed beautician working out of her own home. Her cooking could keep you eating for days, especially her coconut cakes. She accepted Christ as her personal savior at an early age. Roberta attended Mt. Hope United Methodist Church with her family. She later joined Young’s United Methodist Church, where she faithfully worshipped with her beloved husband, the late Thomas Pinkney Kent. When Young’s UMC closed their doors she continued her worship at Patuxent United Methodist Church until her health began to fail. Roberta was a caring and giving person, no matter what the problem was, if you took it to her it was solved. While living in Washington, DC, she was able to teach her Cousin Gladys and other younger family members to use public transportation; provided a place to stay for many of her nieces and nephews and shared her wisdom with anyone who needed it. Thou she never had children of her own, Roberta was a “MOM” to many. While she was small in stature, she was a giant to her family members, also dressing in style and always looking her best. Roberta was affectionately cared for by her cousin Gladys Kent and other family members in her home until she was moved to the Nursing Facility. Here she received loving care by the staff under the watchful eyes of her sister, the late Elsie Boone and her Cousin Gladys Kent. Preceding her in death: her parents, William and Sarah Smith; her beloved husband, Thomas Pinkney Kent; three brothers, Therman, Arnett, and William Smith; two sisters, Elsie Boone and Mildred Smith. She leaves to cherish her loving memories her brother-in-law Gayhart Kent, and her sister-in-law Beth Jones, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She will be greatly missed.
