Obituary for Roberta Lynn Fry

Roberta Lynn Fry passed away Monday, February 22, 2016 at Salina Regional Health Center in Salina, Kansas at the age of 61. She was born on September 7, 1954 to Robert A. and Evelyn (Fellows) Selbe in Kansas City, Kansas. On October 16, 1971 she was united in marriage to Tim Fry at her parent’s home in Plainville, Kansas. They were blessed with two children, Kandie and Shane. They later divorced.

Roberta was a very hard worker. Along with the fulltime work of raising a family, making a home, keeping a spotless house, and cooking every day, she also worked for Schult Homes Corp in Plainville for almost 20 years. When she wasn’t busy working, she enjoyed being outside. From just sitting in the sun and sunbathing, to fishing, camping, and boating, or riding motorcycles, these were the times to relax, enjoy life, and have fun. Roberta also enjoyed cheering on the Oakland Raiders, especially when they were playing the KC Chiefs.

Survivors include her daughter Kandie Morain and husband Roy of Plainville; son Shane Fry and wife Mandy of Plainville; brother Mike Selbe of Plainville; grandchildren Dominic Werner, Alexis Oliver, Jami Morain, Jenna Morain, Kyron Fry, Kane Fry, and Braelynn Fry; great-granddughter Kaisley Werner; and former spouse Tim Fry of Plainville.

Roberta was preceded in death by her parents Robert and Evelyn Selbe.

To say that Roberta loved her family would be an understatement, especially her grandchildren. Everything she did was truly for them. Her heart, her spirit, and her love will be with us forever because she will never be forgotten.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30am Saturday, February 27, 2016 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Plainville. An inurnment will follow in Plainville Cemetery.

Memorials are suggested to the Rebecca A. Morrison House or Rooks County Health Center and may be sent in care of Plumer-Overlease Funeral Home 320 SW 2nd, Plainville, Kansas 67663. Online condolences may be left for the family at
