Roberta ‘Bobbi’ Citro, 82, known for her special sense of style

Roberta ‘Bobbi’ Citro

WILMINGTON — Roberta “Bobbi” Citro, 82, died Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2020, from a rare brain disorder which affects one person in every one million. And that’s what Bobbi was: one in a million.

She and her former husband, Buck Citro, moved to Carolina Beach in the late 1990s from Delaware, where Bobbi retired as a bailiff of the courts.

She soon joined Newcomer’s Club of Wilmington and loved playing in the bridge clubs taking place at members’ homes or in local restaurants. Bobbi also enjoyed playing tennis, solving crossword puzzles and winning games of Mah Jongg. Another favorite hobby was planting flowers in her garden and flying decorative house flags from her porch.

A self-proclaimed clothes horse, Bobbi worked part time at Carolina Beach’s Unique Boutique, a ladies’ fashion shop where customers valued her good opinion. She had a special sense of style and loved wearing linen.

Bobbi was fond of taking long walks. Now she has taken that last walk. She was loved. And for those who knew her, remains one in a million indeed.

Because of COVID-19, a celebration of her life will be determined at a later date. Thank you to her caregivers and friends for their loving support.

Memorial donations may be made in her name to Lower Cape Fear LifeCare, 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington, NC 28401.
