Tallahassee - Ogreta (Greta) Combs Roberts, 95, died on July 8, 2018.

She was born in Manor, Georgia on May 23, 1923 to Robert and Bessie Mae Bishop Combs, and had lived in Tallahassee since 1954.

She retired after thirtyone years of service as a secretary for the Florida Division of Forestry.

Greta was the widow of K.A. (Hal) Roberts who died in 1968. In addition to her parents,

she was pre-deceased by her son Tommy, grandson Andrew and her six brothers and sisters.

She is survived by her loving sons Richard (Beth) and Russell (Leslie), daughter-in-law Chery, grandchildren Rachel West (Daniel) and David, Stephen, T.A. (Gentry), Dan, Dustin (Ashley), Sam and Wilson Roberts. Also great-grandchildren Isaac and Ezra West and Grady and AnnaReed Roberts. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews, wonderful friends, neighbors and especially her church family at Immanuel Baptist.

Other than her family, to whom she was fiercely loyal, among her proudest accomplishments were teaching the four year old Sunday School Class at Parkway Baptist for many years and living independently for almost 50 years after the death of her husband.

She was kind and funny, loving, determined and loyal and will be missed by all who knew her. Greta's life will be celebrated at Beggs Funeral Homes, 3322 Apalachee Parkway, Tallahassee, FL 32311, (850) 942-2929 on Thursday, July 12, 2018.
