Roberta Grace Krabill Retired Teacher
Roberta G. Krabill, age 63, died Sunday, May 31, 2009 at Stein Hospice in Sandusky, Ohio after a lengthy illness.
She was born July 21, 1945 in Attica, Ohio to Naomi (Cook) and Paul Krabill. She was a graduate of Heidelberg College, Tiffin, Ohio and completed her Master’s Degree at Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio. Roberta taught high school Spanish and English for 31 years, 30 of them in Willard.
She is survived by her brother, Roger Krabill, of Attica, Ohio, sister-in-law, Suzanne Krabill of Willard, Ohio, several nieces and nephews and numerous close friends. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, William Krabill and a sister, Carolyn Sue Postell.
Roberta enjoyed reading, traveling, crafts, puzzles, time spent with family and friends and various canine friends. She was well known for her quick wit and keen sense of humor. She will be remembered as a loving sister, aunt and friend.
A private graveside service will be held at a later date. There will be no visitation. Memorial contributions can be made to God’s Little Critters in Willard, Ohio or Stein Hospice in either Norwalk or Sandusky, Ohio.
Miss Krabill was the most influential person in my life. I studied Spanish with her and was so inspired I became one myself. She was my daughter’s godmother and mother like figure to me. I hope everyone finds closure knowing she is with God now.
So sorry to hear of your family’s loss. I had Miss Krabill as a Spanish teacher back in the mid ’70’s at WHS. She was a very dynamic teacher and I enjoyed her classes so much. Rest in peace, Miss Krabill.
Miss Krabill was one of my favorite people in the world. Not just a great teacher who always made learning fun, but a wonderful woman. I’m so sorry for your family’s loss, and for everyone’s loss. She was one of a kind and I’m one of the very blessed people whose life she impacted
I was so sorry to hear of Miss Krabill’s passing. She was, by far, my favorite teacher at Willard High School. While I do not remember many of my High School teachers, Miss Krabill has stuck with me for 23 years. Our deepest condolences to her friends and family. May God give you peace during this difficult time.
I am so sorry to hear of Roberta’s passing. She taught for me for 13 years at Willard High School and both our son and daughter studied Spanish with her for 4 years. They were both well prepared for OSU because of those years. I was blessed with her humor and advise. Rest in peace.

Roberta’s wit, sense of humor and enthusiasm for life made her an outstanding teacher. Her compassion, intelligence and understanding made her a valued friend. How blessed Greg, Chris and I are to have had her as a part of our family for the last 36 years. For all of us who loved her this is a loss that will never be overcome. However, she loved to laugh and to see people happy and so we will try to honor that even now. To her family, you have our deepest sympathy and we love you. To all of her friends and former students, we share your loss. God Bless you and keep you, Roberta. We love you. Greg, Marilyn and Chris
I’d like to express my sympathy to Roberta’s loved ones. She touched so many lives as a teacher and a friend. She had a warm, generous spirit and zest for life that drew people to her. She taught me so much, things that I hope I have passed on to my children. She will be remembered and missed. Rest in peace. Kim Holmer Pottmeyer
My deepest sympathy to Miss Krabill’s family. She was definitely one of my favorite teachers. I took Spanish from her all four years that I was at WHS and learned so much from her. I think the last year that I had her was the best, we learned about Spanish art, cooking and a ton of other things. She will be greatly missed.
