Betty Jo Finley Roberts was born in Lovelady, Texas on a snowy Christmas Day in 1929. She was raised in Beaumont, Texas and married Isaac D. Roberts on September 30, 1950. They raised three sons, Michael, Patrick and Bradford Roberts. Betty is preceded in death by her parents, William and Alberta Finley and her three brothers, Haig, Bob and Ray Finley and her son, Michael Finley Roberts. Betty is survived by her husband of six-two years, Isaac Daniel Roberts and her two sons, Patrick Roberts and his wife Lisa of Liberty Hill, Texas and Bradford Roberts and his wife Laura of Katy, Texas; seven grandchildren and two great grandsons. Betty was a wife, a homemaker and a mother most of her life, and enjoyed every bit of it. She loved to read, garden, fish, oil paint, cook, play forty-two and most of all spend time with her family. Betty had a great sense of humor and had an infectious laugh! She was always full of energy and ready to get things done! Ike and Betty raised their family in Houston and retired to Lake Jackson, Texas in 1998. They have been in Assisted Living in the Georgetown area for the last eighteen months. Betty dealt with Dementia at the end of her life and it robbed her of her memories of us, but not ours of her. Mom was loved dearly and will be missed.
