Remembering Roberta Langella
June 20, 1960 – October 2, 2016
Roberta was born on June 20, 1960 to Joseph Langella and Roberta Greany in Brooklyn, NY. She was the fourth of six children, and used humor to separate herself from the rest of the pack! She had many talents, which ranged from comedy to cooking to interior design, but her greatest talent was making people laugh. She had an uncanny wit, compassion for the downtrodden and a great love for her family and friends. Even in the midst of serious health issues that plagued her for the past thirty years, she still managed to find humor in her situation and in life, and was a joy to all who loved her dearly.
She is survived by her mother, Roberta Gordon, siblings, Billy Langella, Susan Langella Elazm, Joseph Langella, Steven Langella and his wife, Christina, Melody Gordon, Elizabeth Gordon, James Gordon, her nieces and nephews, Jasmine and Joseph Elazm, Everly Taylor, Devar, Emma and Aleigha Gordon. Roberta’s father, Joseph Langella, and sister Lola Langella, passed away in 2005 and 1995, respectively.
