Evelyn Emma Gardner Roberts, 100 years old, of Hague, Virginia went home to the Lord on Tuesday, June 30, 2020. Evelyn was born in Dranesville, Fairfax County, Virginia to Richard Stanley Gardner and Lillian Sarah Thompson Gardner. She met and married the love of her life, William Thomas Roberts, in 1939. Evelyn was a baker for Fairfax County Schools and her talents in the kitchen were legendary. She was a faithful Christian and a member of Ebenezer United Methodist Church.

Evelyn was a devoted mother to her four boys and a loving wife to her husband, who heeded the call to ministry later in life. Evelyn helped him tremendously with this transition and the new life it brought. They were posted to several Methodist churches in various communities in Virginia and her gentle ways and her deep intelligence and faith brought a special richness to her role as a minister’s wife. She was fun-loving and sang in the choir while her husband preached. Evelyn was also a whiz in the kitchen – especially with canning. Tomatoes, corn, green beans…you name it. If you could can it she could do it. She especially enjoyed passing her knowledge and skills on to her grandchildren. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and a dear friend to so many. She will be missed tremendously.

Left behind to cherish Evelyn’s memory are her beloved sons: Stanley C. Roberts (Patricia) of Hague, Virginia; Michael Allen Roberts (Penny) of Bunker Hill, West Virginia and William T. Roberts (Charlotte) of Martinsburg, West Virginia. Evelyn is survived by her brother Willard Gardner (Gertrude) of Sterling, Virginia and her sister Nancy Draper of Winchester, Virginia. She is also survived by her grandchildren: David H. Roberts (Liane), William B. Roberts, Dawn Goings (Lance), Rachel Crawford (Vance), Courtney Roberts, Rob “Robby” Roberts, Michael Allan Roberts (Cynthia), Ian T. Roberts (Cody Marcum), Katelyn Beth Roberts (Ray), Jackie Allen (Mark), Scott Skinner (Barb), Teresa Barco (Bob) and Marcia Daniels (Joe).

Also missing her greatly are her great-grandchildren: Erin, Cassie, Tyler, Jacob, Jordan, Symone, Natalie, Willow, Crystal, Lisa, Dana, Patrick, Christopher, Kaydynce, Braden, Peyton, Melinda, Madison, Joshua, Johnny, Angelique, Crystal, Nathan, Andrew and Travis.

She has twelve great-great-grandchildren, Aiden, Owen, Scarlott, Hunter, Adrianne, Alexandra, Colt, Landen, Kinsley, Easton, Declan, and Wells.

Evelyn was predeceased by her parents and husband, as well as her son Ronnie Lee Roberts, her daughter-in-law Lois Roberts and her grandson Raymond Allen Roberts.

A graveside service will be held at Arnon Chapel Cemetery in Great Falls, Virginia with her son, Rev. Stanley C. Roberts, officiating. Following this service Evelyn will be laid to rest beside her beloved husband.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that you celebrate Evelyn’s 100 years of life by making a donation to either the American Heart Association, 4601 Fairfax Drive, Arlington, VA 22203 or to Ebenezer United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 70, Oldhams, VA 22529.

My dear Ms Roberts - We were friends for 49 years and until this virus messed things up I enjoyed eating lunch with you just about every Sunday at Farnham Manor. My heart goes out to your family as I know they and a lot of folks loved you. You looked forward to your 100th birthday for at least a year. I am so glad you got to enjoy it. You not only had that big party but you had two of them.
You always had a sense of humor, lived a Christian life, and could out preach any pastor that came to the Manor as well as sing and remembered the words to a lot of the songs. I will dearly miss you and until we meet again, keep Bill straight. I know you're glad to be together again.
