Roberta Jean Holland, 75, of Seymour passed away Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2017, at Schneck Medical Center.

Born Dec. 30, 1941, in Seymour, she was the daughter of Robert “Ted” Shutters and Betty Jean Hinton Shutters, both of whom preceded her in death. She married John Holland, who survives.

Other survivors include daughters, Betsie (Michael) Sutter, Isabelle (Toby) Collins, Sandra (Brian) McFall Beebe and Julia McFall; a brother, Jeff (Wanda) Shutters; 11 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren with another one on the way.

Besides her parents, she was preceded in death two brothers, Danny Shutters and Charles Shutters.

The funeral service will be at 1 p.m. Saturday at Voss & Sons Funeral Service. Burial will be at Riverview Cemetery.

Visitation will be from 11 a.m. until time of service Saturday at the funeral home.
