She worked as an executive secretary for various businesses and banks before she joined her business partner, best friend and sister, Gene McDonald in the McDonald – Roberts Real Estate business. Beth always had flowers blooming in her garden year round and she made it her mission to take flowers to people in the hospitals, nursing homes or people who just needed a little joy in their life. She had a full and wonderful life filled with her successful real estate business and worldwide travels with her family.  She loved her family dearly and was an active member in the First United Methodist Church in Corsicana.  

She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Robert John Page, Jr. and sister, Gene Page McDonald.

She is also survived by seven great-grandchildren; Ashley Beal, Autumn Roberts, Chisos Roberts, Felix Roberts, Theo Roberts, Madeline Roberts and Layden Shafer. Beth is also survived by Ron and Becky Farmer, who Beth referred to as her “own children.”

The family wishes to recognize Mrs. Roberts’ caregivers, Shameki Robinson, Bobbie Walker, Annette Bartee, and Pat Watkins for all the love and kindness they showed to Beth in her final years, and Geri Owen for her help as Beth’s personal assistant over the years. These ladies were a true Godsend to the Roberts family.
