Roberta Lorene Werner was born on March 4, 1948, in Devils Lake ND the daughter of Milton L. and Emma A. (Berg) Werner. Her early years were spent in the Hampden/Starkweather ND area. At the age of 8 she moved with the family to Minot ND where she was raised and educated.

Bobbie met and later married Steven Englman while he was serving in the military in Colorado. They were the proud parents of Michael and Lori.

Bobbie was united in marriage to John “Jack” Mattson on December 8, 1982, and they made their home in Arizona until Jack retired from the military. Bobbie and Jack had been high school sweethearts that had reconnected after so very many years. They had a bit of a wandering spirit and lived in Donnybrook, ND, Texas and Montana until 1989 when they came back to the Lake Region area and called it home the rest of their lives. Jack died on September 26, 2019.

Bobbie was a devoted wife, loving mother and grandmother and dear friend to many. Her family meant the world to her, and she loved with her whole heart. She treasured good friends, good times, good conversations.

If you knew Bobbie, you knew she had a collector’s heart. Her collection of roosters and dolls was truly amazing. She loved to crochet and share her creations with family and friends. She did a crossword puzzle or more every day.

We will forever treasure the memories of our life with Bobbie.

Bobbie is survived by her children Michael Englman of Devils Lake and Lori Russell of Edmore ND; grandchildren Colton and Levi Englman: Susan (Houston) Mooneyham, Nathan (Lindsey) Russel, Dava (Alex) Rowe; great grandchildren twins Boston and Brooklyn, Hunter, Maxwell and Vada; sisters Sylvia Loehr, Devils Lake and Linda (Roger) Lauckner, Carrington ND; step children Tanya Mattson and Tammy Mattson and several step grandchildren and great grandchildren; many nieces, nephews and their families.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Jack Mattson, mother-in-law Eunice Mattson, grandson Chad, sisters Myrna Skjervheim, Leila Pillow, and Lola Werner.
