Mrs. Fenwick

Mrs. Roberta L. “Bertie” Fenwick, age 78, of Northville, died Wednesday, August 29, 2018, at Nathan Littauer Hospital, Gloversville.

Roberta was born July 28, 1940, in Poughkeepsie, NY, the daughter of the late Robert and Roberna Clum Wright. She was a 1958 graduate of Franklin D. Roosevelt High School, Hyde Park, NY. She and her husband William have resided in Northville the past 25 years.
