Roberta Dolores (Paradis) Cotnoir
Roberta D. Cotnoir, 76, a resident of Gilford since 2016, died Saturday, December 7, 2019 at the Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia following a brief illness with her family at her side. Roberta lived in Salisbury for many years before her move to Gilford. She was born in Manchester, NH, September, 24, 1943, daughter of the late Albert and Flora (Paradis) Paradis. She was a homemaker and loving mother and grandmother (AKA Nana). She was so talented and crafty that she often crocheted and knitted, making many of her children’s clothing while they were growing up. Roberta was the "rock" of the family, running the kids to endless practices, baseball games, wrestling matches, being an exceptional homemaker and helping Gilles take care of the drywall business.
While living in Salisbury she very often played cards with friends at the Salisbury Senior Center. Roberta had a great fondness for the ocean and enjoyed her many trips to Maine.
She was predeceased by two sisters, Rita and Alberta.
