    Roberta "Bobbie" Saxton was born in Washington, D.C., September 16, 1905. She was the only child of Benjamin H. and Mamie K. (Von Der Haar) Fulter.  Her family came to the Nampa area from Livingston, Montana, in 1920.  On December 7, 1929, she began her life as Mrs. Gordon A. Saxton.  She and Gordon settled on 17 acres on the south shore of Lake Lowell.  Their only child, Harvey Norman, was born on November 26, 1930.  Personal enjoyment came from being a faithful member for 74 years of Nampa's St. Paul's Catholic Church, where she took part in the Catholic Daughter's of America.  Roberta held various offices in the Lake Lowell Friendly Neighbors Club and participated in social aspects of the Idaho State Horticultural Society.  She and Gordon square-danced for many years.  They enjoyed fishing trips and trav-eled the world over.  She was an avid gardener.
    Bobbie was an active part of the Saxton Fruit Farm operations and personally handled local sales for many years.  She was always found at the center of things during the harvest season.
    Bobbie is survived by her husband, G. A. Saxton; daughter-in-law Phyllis Saxton whose husband Harvey and son David preceded Bobbie in death and seven granddaughters and their families; Paticia Saxton Snyder and Michael Banther and sons Nate and Buck Snyder; Laurie and Harold Bingham, children Jacob, Keith, Quinn, Ann and Andrew; Jennifer and Bill Barrus and daughters Sarah, Megan, Andrea, and Danielle; Norma and Tim Standerford and sons David and Greg; Nancy and Mike McHugh, children Harvey and Kaitlin; and Heather and Emmy Lou Saxton.
