Arleen Roberts Obituary

Arleen “Leen” Marie Roberts passed away in her Trenton, New Jersey, home early Monday morning, June 13, 2022, due to a long-term illness. She was 54 years old. Arleen was born in Suffolk, Virginia (North Jericho) on September 25, 1967, to Charlie Riddick and Novella M. Foreman Roberts. She was Novella’s sixth and last child. Arleen graduated from John Yeates High School (Suffolk) in June 1986. The City of Suffolk Utilities Department employed her as an Administrative Clerk beginning in the eleventh grade until she relocated to Trenton, NJ, in 1993.

Arleen was a person of character, kindness, and compassion for others. Arleen had a great passion for cooking. We would have endless conversations about the next new dish of potato salad she was going to cook for the Super Bowl. Arleen was best friends with her roommate Doug. They had a special bond together. If one of them was feeling down, they were always able to uplift each other. No matter how difficult life was, they were there to support each other.

Arleen was preceded in death by her brother Clarence [Head] L. Roberts (October 1960- March 1990); her sister Deborah A. Foreman-Hall (October 1954-June 2005); and her mother Novella M. Foreman Roberts (January 1937-December-2009), all of Suffolk, Virginia. Arleen is survived by a daughter, Tatyana M. Clemens (Houston, Texas); her sisters: Jerman F. Hoover-Leggett (Russell A.) of Levittown, PA; Mable Foreman of Levittown, PA; and Viola M. Robinson-Boone (Bruce) of Columbia, MD. Her nephews: Samuel L. Foreman (Martinsville, VA); Bernard J. Hoover (Bensalem, PA); Jawaan E. Foreman (Trenton, NJ); and Michael A. Robinson, Jr. and Christopher A. Robinson (Baltimore, MD). Her nieces: Katina M. Hall (Charlotte, NC); Kristy Hoover (Marcus) (Hamilton, NJ); Eboni N. Hoover (Trenton, NJ); and Timarah R. Foreman (Norfolk, VA). She’s also survived by several great-nephews and nieces. She has a host of cousins from her maternal Foreman family lineage of the Hampton Roads, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York areas. Lastly, she leaves behind loving, dedicated friends Douglas Tatusko and Jacqueline McClean, both of Trenton, NJ, to mourn her passing.
