Geraldine “Mary” Roberts, 75, of Edgewater, FL, passed away peacefully at home on Sept 2, 2020 after a two-year battle with cancer. Mary was born Oct 30, 1944 in Daytona Beach, the daughter of the late Franklin W. and Goldie Kleinschmidt Roberts. She graduated from Mainland High School in 1963 and worked as a hairdresser in the Daytona area for more than 35 years, moving to Edgewater in late 80’s.
Mary loved living in Volusia County and never met a stranger.

She was a proud member of the Women’s Democratic Association, enjoyed working the election polls and loved to discuss politics. She was known by her family and friends as Aunt Minnie, Aunt Bunny, and Crazy Aunt Mary, but never by Geraldine.
