HELEN JOHNSON ROBERTS
FRANKLINTON - Helen Johnson Roberts, 86, of Franklinton, North Carolina passed into the presence of her Lord on September 28, 2013. A beautiful service was held at home Sunday, September 29, with a graveside service at Fairview Cemetery, her immediate and extended family attending and close friends.

She was born in 1927 in Glendale, California, and was the loving daughter of Maurice and Florence Easley Johnson. She greatly respected them and tried to live the many true and good things they taught her. First of all, love for God’s Word and the Lord Jesus Christ. Also many life lessons from her maternal grandparents.

She was a member of the Highland Park Symphony Orchestra in Los Angeles, California, and studied violin, piano, and voice at the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music, where she received her teaching certificate and taught kindergarten music.

She was the faithful wife of John Alden Roberts, taking the home that he found at Stony Point, Virginia and creating a wonderful storybook life for her family of five children. Her talents included singing, playing violin and piano, teaching music. She sewed everything for her household and her young children’s clothes. She studied nutrition and alternative medicine, nursing her family when they were sick. She was a pioneer in organic gardening.

She searched for second-hand books from better times to find the best influences for her family. After she moved to North Carolina, she had a mission and business with second-hand books and wrote about these books in a book titled “Buried Treasure.”

Helen was given to hospitality and served her community and the church. Here in North Carolina, she taught music, helped with literacy programs, sang in the Northeast Piedmont Chorale, and was a member of Raleigh Piano Teacher’s Association. Like an uncle who was an architect, she used her talents to remodel the house at 507 East Mason Street.

She is survived by five children, Linda Margaret Tinsley, Joyce Elizabeth Roberts, Janice Ellen McCracken, John Maurice Roberts, and Thomas Dean Roberts. Also, 14 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. She left a great legacy and memories. She was truly a woman of Proverbs 31.

For the last five years, Dorothea Ohlandt and her family were lovingly, cheerfully and energetically involved in her care and during the last four years, Community Care and Hospice.

Arrangements were graciously handled by Kahlert Funerals & Cremations, Maysville, NC.
