Roberta Ann (Spires) Dymek (88), a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on the 11th of October, 2023. Born on the 2nd of August, 1935, in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, Roberta was a beacon of love, empathy, and generosity, illuminating the lives of those around her with her radiant spirit. As Walt Whitman once said, "Every moment of light and dark is a miracle." Roberta lived this philosophy, cherishing every moment and imbuing them with love, thoughtfulness, and kindness.\n\nRoberta built a fulfilling life in Lunenburg, Massachusetts, alongside her beloved husband, Alexander Dymek Jr., whom she married on the 16th of June, 1956. A devoted teacher, Roberta nurtured countless minds and shared her passion for learning. An avid reader, she found great joy in the worlds within the pages of books and passed on this love for knowledge to her family and students. As much as she cherished education, Roberta's heart truly belonged to her family. The summers she spent on Cape Cod with her loved ones, particularly the times on Popponesset Beach with her cherished grandchildren and great-grandchildren, were among the most treasured chapters of her life.\n\nIn addition to her husband Alexander, Roberta is survived by her two loving sons, Alexander Dymek III & David Dymek, her brother, George Spires III, her grandchildren, Kate (Dymek) Landry, Alexander Dymek IV, Caroline Dymek, Ryan-Chloe Dymek, and Mary Kate Dymek, and her great-grandchildren, Cole Landry and Maeve Landry. She was preceded in death by her father, George Spires Jr., her mother, Mary Spires, and her sister, Shirley Bossman.\n\nAs we remember Roberta, we celebrate a life that was filled with love, generosity, and empathy. In the words of Maya Angelou, "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Roberta's memory will forever live in the hearts of those she touched.
