Jeni Roberts Obituary

Jeni Marie Roberts, 66, passed away on Sunday, May 14, 2023 at Saratoga Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

Born November 9, 1956 in Pittsburgh, PA, she was the daughter of the late Eston Wilkins and Marjorie Clark Wilkins.

Jeni was a graduate of Ligonier Valley High School, class of 1974.  Jeni completed her LPN program in 1982 at Kapiolani Community College and continued her education at Westmoreland Community College where she completed her RN degree and became a Registered Nurse.  She had a natural talent and passion for helping others, always striving to expand her skills even as her 40+ year nursing career was coming to an end.  Jeni retired in July of 2021 from Saratoga Hospital after 31 years of service.

Jeni loved spending time with her family and friends. Jeni particularly loved her dogs, Cooper and Odie. She was an active member of the Southern Adirondack chapter of the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association. Through this club she trained Odie to bird hunt, one of her absolute favorite activities.

Jeni is survived by her husband of 27 years, John Roberts; son, Tyler Bates (Gabrielle Valenti); daughters, Alyce Bates, Sonja Balcom (Jason Gardner), Jenna Bates, Elizabeth Roberts; grandchildren, Dylan and Noah Balcom, Parker and Kai Lopez, Camden Bates, Zoey and Luka Bates; and many friends who will miss her gracious smile.
