Patti Sue Wilson Roberson

On Thursday, October 1, 2020, Mrs. Patti Sue Wilson Roberson, devoted wife and loving mother of two, passed away at age 79. She was born on October 24, 1940 in Austin, Texas to Delbert and Gladys Wilson. She grew up in Tyler, TX, Shreveport, LA, and Dell City, OK. Patti married John Roberson in 1960 and received her Secretarial Sciences Degree from Louisiana Tech University (formerly known as Louisiana Polytechnic Institute) in Ruston, La. in 1961. In 1962, their first child was born, John Milton (Beau) Roberson Jr. Two years later their second child, Kelly Rene Roberson, was born.

While her husband began a very successful career as a pilot in the Air Force, Patti began to raise/mange her family. She supported her husband through the Officer's Wives Club and other volunteer efforts. She and the family moved some 20+ times over the course of their life in the Air Force. She was always the one setting up the new home and getting the kids settled in their new school.

Patti will be reconnected in heaven with her father, "Dee," and her mother, Gladys as well as her husband, John. She is survived by her two children, Beau (wife, Teresa) living in Memphis and Kelly living in Shreveport; her sister, Wynelle Haynes of Tyler, Texas, and her three grandchildren-John, Sarah, and Grace.

Patti loved to dance. Her early years focused around this activity. During college she took a lead role in a musical along side Joe Tremaine who continued his dancing career on a national level. She also loved to read and play the harp. She taught her kids so much about various cultures around the world. She was an amazing wife, mother, and friend.

Thank you to Heritage Manor Stratmore for caring for our mom for several years. They made sure she was comfortable in her last days. She will be greatly missed by all. Patti will be interred at the Northwest Veteran Cemetery of Louisiana along side her husband, Col. John M. Roberson. Her memorial service will also be held there on Monday, October 26, 2020 at 10 am.

The Final Salute

“Brothers and Sisters in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Mrs. Patti Sue Wilson Roberson a loving U.S. Air Force wife who provided dedicate service to her country, her community and her family. To her family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Patti. To Patti it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank her for her devotion to her husband, her family, the U.S. Air Force and her country. Only a military wife knows the difficulties and great sacrifices associated with rearing a military family that relocated frequently and often included long separations from the one they loved most and anxious moments of concern for their safety. Patti, we bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 985 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 423 veterans of VFW Post 4588, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Patti’s family and loved ones.
