Marian L (Betty) Roberts 

Ms. Roberts departed for her heavenly home, Tuesday, September 2, 2014 when she gave up her courageous third battle with cancer. 

Born December 16, 1933 she was a lifetime resident of Walterboro, South Carolina.  In her lifetime she was unsurpassed in her love for animals and was a member of the humane society.  She was also a caregiver to numerous Walterboro residents.  Her love for her children was unmeasurable, always kind, compassionate and caring.  That love was surpassed only by her love for her Lord Jesus Christ.

She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Samuel D. Metts and Lillian Metts of Cottageville, South Carolina, and a son, Tony J. Roberts of Cottageville.  She is survived by four sons and a daughter, Sherry Gohstlaw, Marshall (Rachel) Roberts, Mark Roberts, Kim Roberts all of Walterboro, Kevin (Jennifer) Roberts of Cottageville SC, 7 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.

At the families request, the memorial services will be rescheduled to a later date. Burial will be private.  Arrangements are by Simplicity Lowcountry Cremation & Burial Services.

    Dear MaMa.
    I have quite a few fond memories of you , but i think the one that lifted me up the most was when i was in the hospital giving birth to Kody( who i know you are enjoying right now,. give him a kiss from me tell him we love him) and knowing he was not gonna survive. You called me every few hours and checked on me and prayed fpr us and i dont really know if i ever said thank you for that. it honestly meant everything to me.. you had such a sweet ,kind heart and thank you for welcoming me into the family and loving my girls so much. I am so glad we came to the hospital on day of your surgery, you had that smile of your face and through it all were praising God… I know your up in heaven and have no more pain.. you walk those streets of gold . I know Tony was waiting for you on the other side of heavens gates . Rest In Peace Mama and Know we love you and you will be missed….until we meet again
