Nicole L. Roberts
Nicole L. Roberts was born on
November 6, 1972 and passed suddenly, on March 2, 2019. Born in
Lynn, Massachusetts, Nicole or Nikki as she was so
affectionately called, was a lifetime resident of Malden.
Loving mother to Adriana Roberts (Dre), the light of her world and
devoted daughter to Debra Roberts of Saugus and Russell and
Debbie Jones of Revere. Nicole is granddaughter to the late John
and Laura Jones, of Revere and Barbara Roberts of Lynn. Nicole
is also survived by her siblings; Talisa “Michelle” Nettles,
Russell Roberts Sr., Rolanda “Tookie” Flammia, Alesha Jones,
Paul Quinn, Christopher Jones and Anthony Frazier. She is known
as Aunty to Jamal Jones, Decovan Wilson, Clinton Cotton, Chace
Bolling, Russell Roberts Jr. and Olivia Roberts. Nicole leaves
behind a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and of
course, her closest childhood friend, Melanie Philbrook.
Known for her infectious laugh and electric smile, Nikki had the
ability to light up any room she walked into. In 2005, life
changed for Nikki when Dre entered this world and captured
Nikki’s heart. Motherhood was Nikki’s greatest accomplishment
and she never wavered at the task. Nikki lived to make sure Dre
was happy and taken care of. She would say, “I’m frugal unless
it’s for my daughter”.
Nikki worked at IQVIA Pharmaceutical Company as an executive
assistant where she was known for her organization skills and
getting the job done. Throughout her career, if Nikki started,
in an entry level position, you can guarantee, before long, she
would be supporting the CEO. Nikki’s vibrant personality
combined with how talented she was caused her to shine and
In her spare time, Nikki loved to sing, entertain and dance. Nikki
and Dre would take drives, blast the music and sing at the top
of their lungs. For years, Nikki traveled with Kion Simmons
performing all over New England, even making an appearance at
the Apollo. Nikki’s personality was even bigger than her voice.
Our lives were forever altered on March 2, 2019….. We lost a

to express the void we feel. We will miss you dearly, Nik.
