Roberta Ripplinger is proud to be part of the Speers family. Her passion for life and her welcoming nature always shine through as she strives to reach her goals to meet and exceed the expectations of those that she is honored to serve.
Roberta was born in Estevan, Saskatchewan and grew up in communities throughout Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta and Texas. Roberta was raised in a very close family unit consisting of her parents and two brothers. Together they enjoyed lots of travelling, had very strong ties to the church families wherever they lived and always had lots of laughter and hospitality in their home.
Roberta attended several schools in Lethbridge, Dauphin, Brandon, Virden and Estevan. She finished her high school years at Western Christian College, a boarding school located at the time in Weyburn. Roberta loved school. She always worked very hard and especially enjoyed the friendships she created. Her post-secondary classes focused on missionary work, psychology, communications, and anything to do with making positive relationships and being a positive influence on those around her.
After completing her formal education, Roberta spent a year in Vancouver working with church youth groups before coming back to the prairies where she married and raised three daughters. During those years Roberta enjoyed running several home businesses, serving with her church, teaching and leading various women’s groups. It was a time of fulfillment for Roberta as she raised her girls, their home full of friends and family, and enjoying the great aspects of living in Regina and Lumsden.
Following the early deaths of her parents, Roberta began to have an interest in funeral service. It was not long before she came across an employment opportunity where she was offered her first job in the profession, that of being a Family Service Coordinator. More than 23 years has gone by and Roberta has worked and become educated in various aspects of funeral services. She has also recently completed the End of Life Doula course and looks forward to serving our community with those skills.
In addition to helping bereaved families, Roberta loves making memories with her own family. She can be found in her spare time having fun and sharing laughs with her grown children, their spouses and eleven grandchildren.
With Roberta’s harmonious, gentle personality she is a gem to have in a busy workplace, serving families from all walks of life, from many different parts of the country and the world. She personally, has been privileged to work with families with different religious beliefs, cultural backgrounds and a wide variety of needs.
