Roberta was born on January 12, 1956, in West Branch, Michigan to Robert M. and Norma K. (Smith) Gusler.

Through the years, she enjoyed being involved in her church, coordinating Christmas Joy and fellowship dinners. She was also a supporter of His Love Family Resources. If there was a need, she filled it, even if she had to pinch pennies later. Roberta was an avid crocheter: from family baby blankets, wedding afghans, and hats/scarfs to keep her grandkids warm. Most of all, she loved and appreciated her husband Allen for all of his support through their 39 years of marriage. She also loved and cared for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Roberta loved watching her birds.

Roberta is survived by her husband Allen Dale Bruce; her mother Norma K. Gusler; her children:  Jennifer (James) LaBo, Joseph Stutesman (Brooke Alley), Jamie (Angelena) Stutesman, and Corina (Samuel) Gingerich; her sisters: Cynthia (Ronnie) Queen and Lisa Gusler; and her brothers: Bradley (Ronda) Gusler, Keith (Yvonne) Gusler. She is also survived by her grandchildren: Ariel, Brandon, Amanda, Crystal, Tristen, Kaytilynn, Anthony, Lukas, Jackson, Brookelynn, Memory, and Norah; and her great-grandchildren: Kirah, Atlas, Lexi, Carson, and Kennedy.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents: Jack and Marie Smith, and Merle and Helen Gusler; her father Robert M. Gusler, Sr., her in-laws: Jack and Leona Willobee, and her brother Robert M. Gusler, Jr.
