Roberta Janell Tibbetts

February 6, 1945 — December 30, 2022

Roberta Janell Tibbetts was born on February 6, 1945, in Bakersfield, California to Robert and Janette (Baze) Dewbre and passed away on December 30, 2022 in Sandpoint, Idaho.


Roberta, or as she preferred, Janell, was the oldest of three siblings. She was raised alongside her many Aunts, Uncles, and cousins and valued the meaning of family. Janell moved to North Idaho in the late 60's with her two small children, Veronica and Cody Carson.  In 1970 she married Mac E. Tibbetts and had four more children - Tory Tibbetts (1971-1971); Tisha Tibbetts (Deerwester); Devon Tibbetts; and Erica Tibbetts (Bennett).  They soon after moved to Sandpoint, Idaho where they raised their family.


Alongside her husband, they managed the K2 Motel for several years.  Janell later worked as a Pharmacy Technician and then retired from Wal-mart in the mid 2000's.


Janell was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend.  She was compassionate, hard working, fun, always eager to help others and had a way of making those around her feel loved.  She had a great sense of humor, loved to laugh and go dancing and enjoyed playing piano but most of all she loved spending time with her family.


She is survived by her sister, Sandra Carson of Sandpoint, ID; her ex-husband, Mac Tibbetts of Ottis Orchards, WA her children and spouses Veronica (Rick) Norton of Yucca Valley, CA; Cody (Norma) Carson of Laramie, WY; Tisha (Doug) Deerwester of Newport, WA; her son Devon Tibbetts of Post Falls, ID; Erica (John) Bennett of Coeur d'Alene, ID; her 14 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren with 1 more on the way, and numerous Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins.


A Celebration of her life will be held at MickDuff's Beer Hall in Sandpoint, Idaho on Friday February 3, 2023 at 6:00 p.m.  All who love Janell are warmly invited to join them in remembering this wonderful woman.
