Janet Krugman Roberts, born in Atlanta on January 29, 1947, to Manuel and Harriet Krugman left this world on December 15, 2015. She was a painter, sculptor, pianist, bridge player, devoted wife, daughter, sister, mother, aunt, cousin and friend. She was preceded in death by the love of her life, her husband, Alan Roberts; her brother and sister, Maurice Krugman and Marcia Singer, and her parents. She is survived by all who were lucky enough to have had their lives touched by hers; most notably, her sister, Karen (Warren) Steinberg; her brother-in-law, Billy Singer; her children, Meredith (Eric) Sidewater, Paige (Eric) Mintz, Marc (Louise) Roberts, Jeff (Sharon) Roberts, and Gary (Lisa) Roberts; grandchildren, Matthew and Celeste Sidewater, Jordan and Elliott Mintz, Ashley and Jesse Vila, Lesley, Brittany, Christopher, Ally, Abbey, Jonathan and Alexis Roberts and great-grandchildren Anthony and Gabriella Vila and Dylan Roberts; best friend, Joanie (Bob) Hardcastle and too many nieces, nephews and dear friends to name individually. Janet was the one so many turned to for love, support, advice, encouragement, and just a listening ear and she will be missed more than words can say. Janet was generous to those she loved and to those in need. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Wounded Warrior Project or Heifer International. A funeral service will be conducted at H. M. Patterson & Son Arlington Chapel, 173 Allen Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30328, at 10:00am today, Thursday, December 16, 2015, followed by Internment at Arlington Memorial Park, 201 Mount Vernon Hwy NW, Atlanta, GA 30328. Shiva will be observed at the home of Meredith and Eric Sidewater, 4989 Long Island Drive Atlanta, GA 30327 on Thursday until 8:00pm and on Friday from 11:00am until 4:00pm.
