Mrs. Roberts lived on Edwards Avenue in East Nashville later in life, where she filled her days tending her magnificent backyard garden, filled with brilliant flowers and tasty vegetables. Many will remember her for her witty personality, a person who didn't mind playing a practical joke, and one who was a delight to listen to as she narrated stories of her life in rural Tennessee.

She is also survived by Jon Lawhon, whom she kept in her home during the day for many years. The family would like to thank the staff of Ridgetop Haven for their very fine care of Mrs. Roberts over the last several years, as well as those many family and friends who visited and comforted her there.
