Obituary for Thelma Gibson Roberts

After waving goodbye to all, Thelma Gibson Roberts, age 108, died peacefully in her sleep on Wednesday, December 26, 2018 at the Warner Robins Rehabilitation Center in Warner Robins, GA. She was born on Tuesday, November 1, 1910 to the late Reverend Eddie (Leora) Gibson of Mitchell, GA. Thelma is predeceased by her husband, Estee Roberts of Warrenton, GA.

Thelma joined the Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church of Mitchell, GA at an early age. She was a dedicated Christian, and an active member of Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church. Thelma served equally as a deaconess at New Salem Baptist Church in honor of her husband. She attended grade school in Mitchell, GA, and graduated from the former Jefferson County Training School in Louisville, GA in 1932. Thelma entered the teaching profession while attending Savannah State College. She taught school for many years at the various church-based schools. After consolidation of schools, she continued to work as a substitute teacher. Thelma retired from teaching in 1969.

Over the years, she worked dutifully on the grand jury and at the voting polls at Beall Spring. Thelma acquired a practical nursing certificate while home-schooling. She attended and graduated from Louvenia’s Beauty Culture School in Augusta, GA. When the farm work was over, she went in search of a part-time job. (If walls could talk) Oh, the places she worked!

She loved reading, writing, sewing and working in her flower beds. Most of all, she loved traveling. Her most precious memories were traveling with her sisters via the Round-The-Block Club of the Wheat Street Baptist Church of Atlanta, GA. They toured the entire United States and Canada from 1977 until the late 1980’s omitting only five states.

Those left to cherish her memory are: a daughter, Paulette (Willie) McCormick of Warner Robins, GA; a son, Maurice Roberts of Warrenton, GA; two granddaughters, Sondra (Dexter) McDowell of Lawrenceville, GA and Keisha Roberts of Atlanta, GA; four great-grandchildren, Keon, Carlton, Morgan and Sydney; two sisters, Reumilla Moss and Lorene Williams, both of Atlanta, GA; two sisters-in-law, Mable Dawson of Warrenton, GA and Ruby Hicks of Harrisburg, PA; several cousins, Reba Johnson of Atlanta, GA, James Mario Irving, Angel Cobb and Avril Cobb, all of Macon, GA, Rhonda Haynes & family of New Smyrna Beach, FL; a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
