Mimi’s parents. . .

. . .Mimi’s father, Harold, was the first of four children born to Laurence S. Roberts and Nellie (Coup) Roberts. Harold was born May 13, 1901 in Wilkinsburg PA. He passed away March 16, 1960 in Leechburg PA, the town where Mimi was raised.

Harold and Martha were married in 1922.

Sisters and brother. . .

. . Mimi, born Marian Cathryn Roberts on February 23, 1937, is the youngest of Harold and Martha’s four children. Her oldest sibling was Betty (Sarah Elizabeth) born Born March 15, 1923. Her brother was Jimmy (James Harold) born July 17, 1925. Marcie (Martha Jane) was born October 14, 1926. Judging from the birth dates of her siblings you can see Mimi was truly the “baby” of the family. As you can see, Mimi’s information is slow in being developed. Just can’t plant the ‘genealogy bug’ in her.  However until she does get the ‘bug’ here is what we have in our genealogy program regarding her family:
