Carol Dean Goodwin Roberts, 81, while at NHC Healthcare of Sparta, went peacefully to be with the Lord, on Sept. 4, 2018.
Mrs. Roberts was born on May 18, 1937, in Sparta, to Dovie Lefever Goodwin and Sydney Goodwin.
She was a dedicated Christian and a member of East Sparta Church of God and was inspirational to many. She loved her family, which included her husband of 63 years, Buddy; children Denise and Jason; and the many children that call her Nana Carol. Her enjoyments were going to church, singing God’s praises, and studying God’s word. Her hobbies were crocheting, tending to her many plants and flowers, and canning and freezing the bounty of vegetables from the garden. It didn’t matter, day or night, when you called her, she was already praying for you.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Minnie Bell Goodwin Lull; and brother, Lonnie Goodwin.
Mrs. Roberts is survived by her loving husband of 63 years, James “Buddy” Roberts; son, Jason Roberts; daughter, Denise Roberts; six grandchildren, Samantha, James, Abbie, Stephine, Melissa, Nikeeta; and three great-grandchildren, Katie, Alex, and Ricky Bruce.
Funeral service will be 4:30 p.m., Sept. 10, 2018, at East Sparta Church of God, with burial in Saylors Cemetery. The family will accept visitors 1-4:30 p.m., Sept. 10, at the church.
Thurman Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
