Birdie was a loving person who never met a stranger. She enjoyed dominos and bingo, eating out, shopping at Costco (which happened frequently) and loved parties up until the age of 98.

We are going to miss simple things such as her laughter and smiling face, tick silver hair, and pretty red fingernails. We will never drink a cup of coffee or eat a piece of chocolate cake without thinking about her. We will love her forever. Our hearts ache for the Calhoun family, but our hearts also rejoice knowing that she is drinking coffee and eating chocolate cake with Jesus, family and friends in Heaven.
All our love to her treasured family,
Sarah & Paul James

My prayers is with the family of Mrs. Roberta Calhoun. When I first met this beautiful person I saw a loving spirit. She was a person who cared about people and one who made you feel you was part of a family. Also she is one that lived to have a good time and didn’t let age slow her down.

She will be missed. My love to the family and letting them know you can call on me anytime.

What a sweet lady....
The love that "mom" shared with my brother and myself was always present. We were "her" twins...If she was awake and we entered the house you could always expect to hear her call out "the twins" from her armchair. She would hug her little stuffed twin hippos (that my brother and I had given her) and give us that big smile...ear to ear...then greet us in her own special loving way.
She slipped into our hearts years ago and has dwelled there ever since.
We love you "mom" . You will always be a part of us.
Our most sincere sympathy and love goes to the family.
Love,
Don and Ron Bertram
