Cokie Roberts, Forever in our Hearts
In the wake of her recent death, we add our voice to so many others in remembering the bright life and enduring legacy of Cokie Roberts. Her work as a broadcast journalist and bestselling author are well known nationally and internationally. Yet, she also gave thoughtful and caring support to many organizations in Montgomery County, both professionally and personally. Her unique blend of insight, skill and warmth touched the lives of those who knew her, and her care for individuals and organizations was exemplified in her willing support of good causes.
The Montgomery Hospice family especially remembers the leadership role which Cokie played in establishing Casey House, our inpatient care facility, and in celebrating organizational milestones in support of us over the years. Along with her husband Steve, she has been a fervent advocate for the value of hospice care. Our sadness in this loss will always be linked with our deep gratitude for her unique and exemplary life.
