Elma Lee Boothe Roberts, went to be with the Lord on October 20, 2019. Elma was born in 1943 to Robert and Lillian Boothe. She was preceded in death by the love of her life, Robert L. Roberts. Left to treasure her memories are her children Molly Harris (Sammy), Albert Roberts (Sandra), Jerry Roberts (Missy) and Kim English (Ricky), grandchildren Josh Morris (Maida), Audrey Kah (Chris), Taylor Howell, Jenny Way (Chris), Dustin Roberts and Ashton English (Shane), and great-grandchildren Charley Mae, Parker, Kathan (Jr), Serenity, Hasten, Brayden and upcoming Baby Kah. Elma was especially close to her loving siblings Jerry (deceased), Bobby, David, Lonnie, Shirley, Frances, Alice and Linda. Elma had a large family with many extended nieces and nephews that she loved dearly.
Elma drove a school bus for Roanoke County for over 40 years. She also helped her husband run their plumbing business. Elma was a kind soul that never knew a stranger. Her children and grandchildren were most precious to her and she spoiled them all with love and great family gatherings.
The family wishes to thank Heartland Hospice for the special care for Elma.
