Rena "Joyce" (Turner) Roberts Obituary
MILLS RIVER-Rena "Joyce" Turner Roberts, 81, of Mills River, passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home on Sunday, April 26, 2015. She was surrounded by her four children, younger sister, and daughter-in-law. Joyce was born in Union, SC, daughter of the late Brooks Franklin Turner and Kate Wix Turner. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 49 years, Harold "Joe" Roberts, a sister, Sue Martin, and two brothers, David Turner and Kenneth Turner.
Joyce moved to Mills River with her husband and children in 1972, at which time she became active at Mills River Baptist Church and a valued member of the community. She always thought more of others than herself, and unselfishly devoted her time to her children and grandchildren. She was a caring friend to all who knew her and will be greatly missed.
She is survived by a son, Kevin Roberts and his wife, Tina, of Fletcher; two daughters, Michelle Roberts of Fletcher and Lisa Roberts and her wife, Holly, of Mills River; and a son, Tim Roberts of Greer, SC. She is also survived by a number of grandchildren, including Colton Pittillo and Brenna Roberts of Fletcher, Taylor Roberts, Chris Harris, Keith Harris, and Blake Roberts, all of Mills River; two sisters, Jean Heafner of Raleigh and Ruth Sitton and her husband, Bill, of Mills River, sister-in-law, Carolyn Turner of Gastonia; and a number of nieces and nephews.
A Memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, May 9, 2015 in Shepherd Memorial Park Mausoleum Chapel. The Reverend Burton Ott will officiate. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service in the chapel.
In lieu of flowers Memorials may be made to Four Seasons Hospice, 571 South Allen Road, Flat Rock, NC 28731.
