Gilda was a wonderful wife, mother and the best Mawmaw to her grand kids. She was compassionate, funny, loving, kind and tender. She and her husband were members at Southside Assembly of God in Garland.

She was preceded in death by her father, J.D. Stiffler; sister-in-law, Linda Stiffler; and brother-in-law, Jerry Martin.

Survivors include her husband, James Roberts Sr.; mother, Patricia Stiffler; sons, Brad Bacon (Lori), James Roberts Jr.; daughter, Lucretia Verline Littrell (Phillip); grand children, Trevor Bacon, Kara Bacon, Brennan Bacon, Zoe Verline Fulgham, Taylor Fulgham, Ethan Milatz, Jameson Leon Roberts, Jordan Littrell, Bella Littrell; numerous nieces and nephews.
