While hiking on December 23, 2020, Roberts developed lower intestinal pain and difficulty breathing. She returned home to rest. Very early the next morning she fell out of bed and found she could not get up. She was taken to Cedars-Sinai Hospital, where it was determined she had developed a urinary tract infection that had advanced to sepsis. Her illness was complicated by her history of hepatitis C. The body's immune response to her infection resulted in multi-organ failure. She had to be placed on a ventilator to help her with the work of breathing. Her partner, Lance O'Brien, was not allowed to see her due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Her condition deteriorated, and on January 3, 2021 she was taken off life support. O'Brien was finally then allowed to visit her. She died on the evening of January 4, at the age of 65. Initial reports that Roberts had died on January 3, 2021 were not correct. They arose after O'Brien told her manager that he had visited her in the hospital and "said goodbye". In a handwritten will, Roberts left her estate to O'Brien, her common-law husband.
