Crain, Roberta A.

May 27, 1952 — July 29, 2022

Roberta A. Crain of Kansas City, Missouri, passed away on Friday, July 29th at the age of 70. She was preceded into the afterlife by her sister, Alberta Feagle, parents Earnest and Bertha Crain and former husband/life long friend Gary Rasmussen.

Although her elementary education began in South Kansas City, her family would soon move to Lee’s Summit. There, she and her sister attended Lee’s Summit High School while living with their parents on a small farm. This move may be one of the catalysts that led to her love of animals and gardening. The following fall after high school graduation, she and her sister attended college at North West Missouri State University in Maryville, MO. It is here that she would graduate with a degree in Political Science and meet her husband Gary. Post college, Roberta would go on to begin a career in social work for the state of Missouri, where she became a supervisor. She would continue this career until her retirement in 2003. However, she always had an interest in helping and teaching children, which is why her retirement would soon turn into a substitute teaching career with the Center School District. She would remain a substitute, primarily in elementary, until her death in 2022.

She is survived by her brother-in-law Gene Feagle, nephew Andrew Feagle, cousins Linda Kay Hanson, Bob Aubuchon, Don Aubuchon and other surviving cousins.

Crain, Roberta A.'s Guestbook

Our thoughts are with your family. Amira and Mazin, my kids, are among her many fans at Boone and are very sad she’s no longer with them. A day with Ms.Craine as sub, or even helping their class, is a day they came home with smiles and stories. Know that she touched many young lives and is adored by many. ( correction, upon reading this, Mazin clarified that she was actually adored by EVERYONE at Boone elementary)

I first met Ms. Roberta in 2004. She was the long-term sub for my para, at Indian Creek Elem. Ms. Roberta was wonderful with the students and very supportive of me. We loved her. Throughout the years I would see Ms. Roberta mostly at Boone Elem. Sometimes after months or years of not seeing her, we would still be able to have a genuine visit. My prayers are with her family.

Ms. Crain was so loving and kind, the heart of Boone Elementary. She cared for every single person, every single day. She always had a smile and a kind word, no matter what she was going through. She uplifted me everyday, whether that was a "Good Morning", a passing hug in the hallway, or a text on holidays to wish us well. She was loved in return by so many. She will live on in our hearts and we will keep her memory alive by being a little kinder, a little merrier, and uplifting those around us. My heart is with you all during this sad time.
