The insult “not a rocket scientist” did not apply to Roberta Bell MBA ’86. She put her chemistry degree to good work designing rocket fuels at Stanford Research Institute. Roberta later earned her MBA from Santa Clara and taught economics there and at nearby De Anza College. Her greatest pride was her family. Roberta also cared about the families of others, serving as the chair of the Governor of Massachusetts’ Advisory Council on Children’s Services. Beyond family and work, Roberta was president of the Los Altos Art Club for 14 years which led to many of her deepest and most enduring friendships. Roberta died July 29, 2023.
