Obituary for Roberta L Morse

Roberta Lucille Morse, age 81, left this world April 8, 2022, from her home in Dixon Springs, IL (Golconda), to go her eternal home in heaven with her Lord and Savior-Jesus Christ.

Roberta was born in Bergholz, OH to Robert Myers and Verda (Speicher) Myers on July 1, 1940. As a child she grew up in Ohio and after the divorce of her parents, she was able to experience different places with her mother, father and grandparents.

After graduation from high school, Roberta married Bill Moffett. They had 2 children: Hyland and Mary. Their marriage lasted a
short time, and they divorced. Then Roberta met and married the love of her life, Bill (William L.) Morse and they had two more children: Gayla and Roger.

Roberta worked as a wife and mother, a waitress (where she met Bill), a bus driver and a customer service representative at Allsteel for 25 years. She was a Sunday School teacher, an organist, and a motherly figure to all who knew her. Roberta loved her family with all her heart; her children, grandchildren and Great-grandchildren meant so much to her. Roberta LOVED the Chicago Cubs and went to their games as often as possible. There was only one love that superseded all of these, her love for Jesus. Growing up in the church, in the love of the Lord, Roberta exhibited every true and correct nature of being a Christian. With love, humility, and righteousness she treated everyone the same and through it all, she prayed… believing.

Bill and Roberta lived a happy life for over 40 years. They lived in Southern IL early in their marriage, eventually they settled in Aurora, IL until retirement led them back to Southern IL. Dixon Springs Baptist Church was Roberta’s home for over 25 years. Roberta loved music, playing organ and singing! She sang solos as well as alto in the choir or other groups. This small lady had a BIG voice.

After the passing of Bill Morse in 2003, Roberta reconnected with Bill Moffett and they married in 2004. In April 2014 Bill Moffett passed away. She sustained herself in the love of the Lord, her family and her beloved cat-Callie. Roberta is also preceded in death by her parents, several siblings and Larry Dean Morse. Leaving behind so many who love her: Hyland (Kathy) Morse of Roscoe, IL, Mary (Terry) Light of Golconda, IL, Gayla (Tommy) Davis of Clinton MS and Roger (Penny) Morse of Golconda IL, and her step children: Jay Moffett of Columbus, OH and David (Anissa) Moffett of Mechanicsburg, OH Roberta’s grandchildren and great grandchildren: Beth Morse, Cara Morse, Bill (Patricia) Morse, Ellie, Reighlee, Penelope, Avery, Gracie, Joshua (Anne) Light, Bellah and Leah, Jeremie Light, Zacharie, Hayden and Brieanna, Will Davis, Chris (Lindsay) Davis, Nichole (Haris) Jakupovic, Jax and Eleanor, Rhett Morse, Taylor (Aleksi) Yrtti , Vivien, Olivia Morse, Chris Scheirbaum, and Logan Moffett.

She was also survived by many brothers and sisters, cousins and other family-- in laws and outlaws too! Roberta left a lasting impression on so many coworkers, friends, and church members, she will be deeply missed.

Visitation will be at Dixon Springs Baptist Church (962 State Highway 146 W, Golconda, IL 6293) on Friday April 15, 2022, 5:00 pm - 8:00pm. The celebration service will be on Saturday, April 16, 2022 at 11:00 am, with visitation 10:00 am-11:00 am, just prior to the service. Burial will follow at the Mt. Zion Cemetery.
