Mary Roberts

June 29, 1931 — March 14, 2015

Mary Lee Roberts daughter of William C. and Lula (Lattimore) Elliott was born June 29, 1931 in Minco, Oklahoma and departed this life surrounded by loved ones on March 14, 2015 in Fayetteville, Arkansas at the age of 83 years, 8 months and 14 days.

Mary Lee married the love of her life Troy Edward Roberts on August 23, 1952 and to this union 3 daughters were born; Mary Ann, Lee Ann and Troy Lynn. She was blessed with two children from prior marriages Nina Cheryl "Cheri" McLeod and James Troy Roberts.

Mary Lee owned and operated Mary Lee's Beauty Shop from 1952 to 1985. She also worked with Troy in their Nu Life Manufacturing fishing tackle business. She helped with packaging of tackle but loved being the salesman. All her customers became her friends. Mary Lee also wrote a newspaper column call "Stuff about Westville". She loved to draw, paint, write, fish, and go out to eat Chinese food. Mary Lee could find four leaf clovers without really trying and the chances of that are 1 in 10,000 but she was one in a million.

She was preceded in death by her parents; William and Lula Elliott, her husband; Troy Edward Roberts, 2 daughters; Cheri Cartwright and Lee Ann Self, 2 grandsons; Joshua and Caleb McAlister, siblings; William Elliott, J.T.
