Marie Roberts

July 30, 1934 — January 27, 2022

A service to honor the life of Mrs. Juanita Marie Roberts will be held 12 noon on Tuesday, February 1, 2022 in the chapel of Blanchard-St. Denis with Bro. Olan McLaren and Sis. Linda Chance officiating. Burial will follow at Coulee Bethel Cemetery in Campti, LA. The family will receive friends from 10 am until service time on the 1st at Blanchard-St. Denis Funeral Home. Those honored to serve as pallbearers include her grandsons, Dewey Richard Roberts, Heath Roberts, Matt Roberts, Josh Roberts, Chris Roberts and Roger Hines. Marie, 87 years of age and a resident of Campti, LA passed away on January 27th surrounded by her loving family. She was born on July 30, 1934 to Dewey and Lena Mae Fredieu. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband of 61 years, Fred Roberts; daughter, Carolyn Miller; a granddaughter, Amy Lynn James; and her sister, Jean Brossett. She is survived by her daughter, Deborah Jean James and husband Lane; and a son, Dewey Roberts and wife Debra, and her son-in-law, Collin Miller. She was lovingly known as Maw-Maw Ree to her grandchildren, Dewey Richard Roberts, Heath Roberts and wife Lindsey, Matt Roberts and wife Corianne, Josh Roberts and wife Lauren, Chris Roberts and wife Katie, Rogers Hines and wife Kristy, and Lana Ebert and husband Casey; as well as 18 great grandchildren and 1 great-great granddaughter. Marie’s greatest joy on earth was her family. Whether it was taking a “Girls Trip” to Orange Beach with the girls or “The Float” trip with the boys, and family trail rides and reunions, her happiest times were spent amongst her family. Christmas was her favorite holiday because she knew she would have her entire family together at one time. She enjoyed preparing meals for family and friends and was especially known for her dumplings and rice and gravy. No one went hungry around Marie Roberts. Every Friday, she made a weekly visit to have her hair done before going shopping with family and friends and later to go to eat with her friends. She was a hard worker and held many jobs over the years which included running the family store or working at Debbie’s Drive In, all in an attempt to be a good provider for her children and grandchildren. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
