It is with great sadness that the family of Roberta Fontana announce her death on August 21, 2019, at the age of 77 years old.
Roberta (Bobbi) Fontana was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Helen and Joseph Simon on May 31, 1942. She married Lynn Fontana in 1967. Together they had one son, Jeff. Bobbi, Lynn and Jeff moved to Cass Lake in 1984 where they owned and ran Fontana's restaurant. Bobbi spent most of her days in the restaurant making all the food from scratch and visiting with the many patrons. They closed the restaurant in 1998, but Bobbi couldn't stop working. She found employment at the Cass Lake Palace Casino in the administrative department. She worked there until recently.
Bobbi had a big heart and was always giving. She loved animals, and it was not uncommon for her to rescue them and give them a home with as much love as she gave everyone else.
Bobbi is survived by her husband Lynn Fontana, her son Jeff (Monica) Fontana, grandchildren Alexis Peterson, Vincent Fontana and Isabella Fontana.
A private gathering will be held in her honor.
