With a doctorate in Metaphysics and special powers of counseling and healing others, Dr. Roberts was a very special person in many ways...She lived in Hawaii when her husband retired and had a radio talk show called "Dr. Dris". Unfortunately, cancer took her life at Providence St Peters Hospital in Olympia , Washington on May 7th, 2009 while staying with her daughter, Karen. There is a special place in Hawaii where her remains are placed, in the home of her son, Craig Roberts.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to breast cancer research, and visit this website often to learn about the life of Dr. Dris.
Dr. Doris Paine Roberts is sadly missed by her brothers, Tom and George, and sister, Edythe. Her children, Wendy, Dorrie, Karen, Craig, and Robin have a special place in their hearts never to be filled by another… This place is full of tender love and is only yours, Our Mother...
