Louise Roby, 94, of Wrentham, died peacefully December 14, 2012 in the Maples Rehab and Nursing Center in Wrentham. She was the beloved widow of the late Louis H. Roby who predeceased her in 1984, and to whom she was married on September 26, 1942.

Home and family meant the world to her, and she enjoyed family trips to Nova Scotia and Cape Cod. She particularly delighted in her grandchildren. She was an avid reader, loved to knit and enjoyed crossword puzzles and jigsaw puzzles. She was a devoted Red Sox fan, and enjoyed watching the birds at her feeders in her yard.
She is survived by her loving children, Marcia and her husband Mickey Carlucci of Franklin, Cynthia Thompson of Wrentham, Howard and his wife Diana Roby of NJ, and the late Paul Roby. She was the dear sister of Eleanor Harlor of Mansfield, Ruth Young of Portland, ME, and Mary Lou and her husband Dick Christiansen of PA.
