  • Cynthia Ann Roberts


Cynthia Ann Roberts departed from her earthly home on Friday, Sept. 10, 2021, at Parkview Hospital in Mexia.

Cynthia was born May 21, 1971, to the parentage of the late Luster R.D. Williams and Charles Ruth Quigley-Williams in Limestone County.

Cynthia attended Mexia public schools and graduated in 1989. She accepted Christ at an early age. She became a member at First Mexia Baptist Church, under the leadership of Apostle Patricia Horn-Heidgerken. She worked at the Mexia State School a total of 32 years.

Cynthia was a lovable, kind and compassionate person. She met the love of her life, Alexander Christopher “Chris” Roberts, in 1988, and they were married July 22, 2001. From the marriage, two children were born, Draylon Montrall Roberts and Janeria Nicole Roberts. They were side by side until her passing. Cynthia loved her family. She enjoyed cooking and doing weddings and parties; that was her passion. She loved to see people happy. Everyone loved her, and most importantly, she was a nightly prayer warrior.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Charles Ruth Quigley-Williams; father Luster R.D. Williams; grandbaby, A’Draya Peyton-Roberts; brother Luster R.D. Williams Jr.; and sisters Ivanna Reader and Pamela Sterling
