Beth Roberts

— Mrs. Beth Roberts, 91, of Corsicana passed away peacefully with her loving caregivers at her side on Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2013, at Navarro Regional Hospital.

She was born Nov. 11, 1922 in Silver City, to Robert John Page Sr. and Mary Emma Farmer Page.  

Beth attended Hill College for two years before moving to Washington D.C. to work in the ordinance department where she developed her love of travel. Upon the death of her brother, Robert John Page Jr., she returned to Corsicana where she met and married Fred Theo Roberts on April 24, 1948. 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.

Beth is survived by her children, Karen Beal and husband Spencer of Midland; son, Alan Roberts and wife Bickie of Mabank; and son, John Roberts and wife Antoinette of Dallas; grandchildren, Spence Beal and wife Alyssa, Rebecca McClure and husband Christopher, Kimberly Beal and fiancé’ Meyers Fryback, Jeffrey Alan Roberts and wife Cassandra, Page Maughan and husband Zach, Lauren Shafer and husband Luke, David Roberts and wife Kally, Jane Roberts and Rosalynn Ly. 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.

Graveside services were held at 11:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 29, 2013, at Dresden Cemetery in Dresden.

A memorial service was held at 2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29, 2013, at the First United Methodist Church in Corsicana with Rev. Eston Williams officiating. A reception followed the service will be held in the Jackson Parlor at First United Methodist.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to FUMC Stained Glass Window Fund at 320 N. 15th Street, Corsicana, Texas 75110, or to the charity of one’s choice.
