Roberta Beach

August 19, 1945 — May 28, 2022

Dr. Roberta Kay Beach of Denver, CO died at home after a long battle with complications from multiple sclerosis.

"Robin" was born in Long Beach, California on August 19, 1943 to Robert and Margaret Beach. She later moved with her family to Washington DC and Winston Salem NC. She graduated from Reynolds High school, where she excelled on debate teams and won a National merit scholarship. She attended Duke University, and Duke Medical School where she edited the medical school newsletter. She attended University of California at Berkeley for her Masters of Public Health degree. Robin moved to Denver CO, then Boulder CO and back to Denver where she stayed until her death. Her work as a pediatrician and as a specialist in adolescent medicine and teen sex education, brought her many local and national awards and recognition. She co-authored chapters in several medical publications.

She was married to Marvin Oderberg and that marriage ended with no children. She remained close to Marvin's extended family all her life. Nate Oderberg, her brother-in-law, was an especially good friend in later years. Her home health care providers gave her peace and comfort in her last three years.

She was predeceased by her parents and older sister, Linda Bradford. She is survived by her sister Beverly Reiner, her brother Kevin Beach, nephews Michael Williams, Robert Bradford Jr, niece Kendall Grace Beach and several great nephews and nieces
