Sara Bouchillon Roberts

October 11, 1932 — December 8, 2017

Mrs. Sara Bouchillon Roberts, 85, passed away at the Winston County Medical Center on Friday, November 8, 2017. She was born on October 11, 1932, to parents Cecil Clifton Bouchillon and Sara Estes Bouchillon in Louisville. She graduated from Louisville High School. After graduation, she moved to Detroit Michigan, with her parents, who had moved there to find work. But, within about a year, she moved back south and married Roy Lamar Roberts, who at the time of her death, was her husband of almost 66 years. Their life together began at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, with many moves over the next several years to Army bases around the south. In January 1953, their service for the military ended and they moved back to Louisville, to make it their permanent home. Sara began her work career at Citizens Bank in the bookkeeping department, but later in life moved to work at the Winston Medical Center, working until her two sons finished college. She was preceded in death by her mother, father and brother, Cecil Bouchillon (Dora) and sister, Peggy Stubbs (Bobby). She is survived by her husband, Roy, sons Ronny Roberts (Sissie), and Steve Roberts, four grandchildren, Jess Clifton Roberts (Misty), Kate Roberts Magley (Greg), Wyatt Steven Roberts (Jordan), Payson Jones Roberts, and four great-grandchildren, Jackson David Roberts, Grant Matthew Roberts, Mae Patridge Magley and Lela Todd Magley. Sara was a dedicated loving wife, mother grandmother and friend to all who knew her. Funeral services were held on Tuesday, December 12, 2017, at 11:00 a.m., at Porter Funeral Home, with Rev. Mike Childs and Rev. Jonathan Peeples officiating. Burial was at Poplar Flat Baptist Church. Pallbearers were Jess Roberts, Payson Roberts, Greg Marley, Bobby Stubbs, Adam Byrd, Robert Byrd, and Kent Gravitt. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Poplar Flat Cemetery Fund, P.O.
