Roberta “Bobbe” Redding, 90, died Friday, April 23, 2021, in Williamsburg, Virginia. She was the daughter of Helen and Frederick Lamont of Trenton, New Jersey.
Bobbe was born on November 6, 1930, in Trenton, New Jersey. She was a graduate of The College of William and Mary, where she met her future husband Charles “Chuck” Redding.

Bobbe was a longtime volunteer at the St. George Tucker House and the Bruton Parish shop in Colonial Williamsburg.
Bobbe was active in her Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority alumni group and was an avid walker and bicyclist. She and Chuck were active in the local Williamsburg bicycle club and had biked extensively in the US and abroad.

    I had the pleasure of sharing some time with Bobbe at the St. George Tucker House in Colonial Williamsburg. Her good nature and kindness with guests and co-volunteers, in addition to her willingness to sweep the Tucker steps and walk in ANY weather, are my warm memories of Bobbe. Peace to the Redding family.

    A bright light radiated from this sweet lady through her ready smile and sparkling eyes. That sparkle is now a star in the night sky watching over us. The warmth of her spirit will be in my heart always.

    It was always a pleasure to be with Bobbe at the Tucker House, her sweet smile and willingness to serve our guests and she made sure the porch and steps were perfect. I will miss her so much, what a wonderful lady.

    I only knew Bobbe for 3 years but I will always remember her. She alway had a smile and left a smile on everyone she interacted with. More recently she would stop by the St George Tucker house after Sunday service for a refreshment and conversation and she always had stories to tell me. She was a special person. I can see her now, sweeping the stairs leading her up to heaven.

    Carol and I first met Bobbe at Bruton Parish Episcopal Church in Williamsburg where we were church members ... we sat together many, many and many more Sundays in the rear balcony of the church ... we enjoyed refreshments together at the George Tucker House and visited together at the Bruton Parish Gift Store as Bobbe volunteered at both locations ... finally we had the honor to attend her 90th Birthday Party at her home this past November ... Bobbe, you will forever be missed but as I am sure you have confirmed by now ... we will all be reunited again ... Carol and I send Hugs to our Special Church Friend Bobbe now in God's Heaven ... !!!!
