The funeral service for longtime community activist and volunteer Connie Worden-Roberts is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 23, according to her son.

The service is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Eternal Valley Memorial Park in Newhall, Leon Worden said.

A local titan of volunteerism and advocacy, Worden-Roberts was perhaps best know as the Santa Clarita Valley’s “Road Warrior” for her efforts to improve driving around the area. She is credited with improvements on Highway 126 and on the Magic Mountain Parkway on- and off-ramps at Interstate 5, as well as contributions to the cross-valley connector.

She also worked to establish the city of Santa Clarita — gathering 2,000 out of the 24,000 signatures needed to put the vote to the people — and was vital in launching the still-continuing cleanup of the Whittaker-Bermite site, the Santa Clarita Valley’s 1,000-acre brownfield.

Worden-Roberts also served on the William S. Hart Union High School District board, the North County Citizens Planning Council, the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital speakers bureau, the Friends of Hart Park, the SCV Parade Committee and the Placerita Canyon Nature Center Association.

Worden-Roberts died Tuesday at the age of 83.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Worden-Roberts’ name to the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley, for which she was a longtime board member.

Eternal Valley is located at 23287 Sierra Highway in Newhall.
