Roberta was a longtime Revere resident. She was raised & educated in Revere and was a proud alumna of Revere High School, Class of 1970. Roberta was married to her husband Henry R. Fountain and remained in Revere where they raised their family. Roberta was always a mother first, she made sure that she took care of her children and gave them a home filled with love. She also worked for a number of years for PCF in Revere, a division of the Boston Globe in an administrative position. She enrolled in Bunker Hill Community College & North Shore Community College and earned a degree in Data Entry. Roberta later went on to work for Kohl’s Department Store in Saugus where she was currently employed for the past 18 years. Approximately 10 years ago, Roberta and her family relocated to Wakefield, where she was living at the time of her passing. On May 1, 2019, Roberta lost her love, Henry, after 39 years of marriage. Roberta continued to do what she always did best, being a selfless mother taking care of her family. She was blessed to be a grandmother & great grandmother. Roberta was hit by tragedy by loss of her daughter, Amanda M. Green, who was 39 years old & died on April 3rd, 2021 from a brief battle with pancreatic cancer. This was certainly devastating to the entire family, but Roberta continued to do her best to be there to support all of her family. Roberta was actively working as her health was declining and still going about her daily routine & scratching her lottery tickets only hoping to win and share her winnings with who else but her family. Roberta passed peacefully and was welcomed into heaven by the embrace of her loving husband & daughter.

She is the beloved wife of 39 years to the late Henry R. Fountain. Devoted & loving mother of Andrea M. Clark of Danvers, J. Henry Fountain & wife, Kim of Danvers, Justin A. Fountain & wife Stacey of Revere, Neal H. Fountain & his wife, Gina of Danvers, Alec H. Fountain of Wakefield & the late Amanda M. Green & her surviving husband, Joseph of Revere. Treasured Nana of Emily Green of Revere, Christopher, Charles & Luke Fountain of Danvers & 5 other grandchildren & 3 great grandchildren. Dear sister of Elizabeth Visco & husband Joseph of Lynnfield & Nancy Iengo of Peabody & her late companion Kevin J. Heavy. She is also lovingly survived by several nieces, nephews, grandnieces & grandnephews.
