Roberta Ford Obituary

Roberta Ford, affectionately known as Nene, was a long-time resident of Dorchester. Roberta attended Jeremiah E. Burke High School, and she later worked in various fields, but she found joy in caring for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Roberta was a woman of her word, had a strong will and spirit, and loved to laugh and joke with others. She enjoyed bingo, cooking, home decorating, shopping, and traveling to Cape Cod.

She is preceded in death by her father, James Ford Sr., her mother, Susan (Dean) Ford, her sister Barbara Ford, her brothers, James Ford Jr. and Ronald Ford, and her brother-in-law, Joseph Santos Bertino Sr. Her living siblings are Carol Bertino, Marion Ford, and Edward Ford. Her memory is survived by four children: Michael Ford, Derick Ford, Natasha Ford, and Shalese Ford. Her grandchildren are Trey Reid, Samantha McKenzie, Malik Ford, Sabrina McKenzie, Noelani Reid, Amia McKenzie, and Leilani Reid.

Her memory will also be preserved by April Reid, Charnae Reid, and Charnae’s two sons Adonis, and Hanson. Her family such as nephews, nieces, grand nephews, and grandnieces are as follows: Ann Marie Fuentas, her husband Daniillo Fuentas, and their son Dana Fuentas, Joseph Bertino Jr and his family, Maria and George Tigos and their sons, Anthony Bertino and his children, Dave Hannaran and family, and Raymond Ford and his family.

She will be missed by all and is remembered by her living friends Karen Bruttaniti, Elizabeth (Betty) Gathers, Careese Boynton, Paul Boynton, Evelyn and Atha Demopolus, and the late Kathy (Sugar) Boynton.
