After a full life of 85 years, Mary Ann passed away in peace and comfort at home with family. She joyfully contributed to the betterment of humanity by serving as a nurse for over 25 years. Mary Ann's favorite pastimes were a day out fishing or a busy day on the dance floor with TC. She loved to cook her famous dump cake and take it and many other dishes to share with others at the dances. The dances were the highlight of her week. She loved to visit with her friends there. She also enjoyed entertaining at home, whether it was cooking Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter dinner or just another night she wanted to invite us all over even if it was just coffee with friends and family. Mary Ann loved people and loved to spend time together and to help others where she could. Sometimes it was just in giving of herself to listen to someone with a problem, that was hurting that needed to be heard. She always made time for others. She felt like God asked us to do that like He would do if He were here on Earth. She was a wonderful witness of Christ's love.

Mary Ann was preceded in death by her husband C.E. Roberts Sr., her mother Mary Huffstutter, her sister Billie Wynne, and her brother Roy Charles. She is survived by her sister Jan Rose and her husband Bill Hardin. Mary Ann's surviving children and their spouses Curtis E. Roberts, Jr. and his wife Kanokporn, Cindy Roberts Harrell, Lisa Roberts Brewer and her husband Greg. Mary Ann had six grandchildren, Curtis E. Roberts III and Madeleine Grace Sorensen and husband Eric, Chris "Joey" Harrell and wife Sheri and Michael Harrell and wife Kim, Greg Brewer Jr. and wife Melanie and Jon Brewer and wife Kathryn and six great-grandchildren, Sarah Harrell and Izzy Harrell, Garrett Harrell and Maddie Kate Harrell, Carter Brewer and Avery Brewer and many cousins and one uncle, Uncle Labon Tompkins.

Today we laid my grandmother in her final resting place. She was a truly wonderful woman who loved everyone. She would do anything for anyone who needed anything any time she had the chance. She was a saint — a home for many who had no place to go, a hot meal for many who had no food to eat, and a warm smile for many who had no strength left to give. In short, she was a shelter from the storm for many a tired soul. She touched plenty of lives, all for the better, and she will be remembered fondly for a long time to come. The warmth and light of her actions will ripple out through the world for eternity, and anybody who knew her would say precisely that. There are few people I’ve ever known who were as wonderful as her. No matter how she felt, she always had a smile for you, and it was as radiant as it was infectious.

She was laid to rest exactly where she belongs — right next to her mother. Rest in peace grandma 💜

Mary Ann always wore a smile and was always a delight to be around. She had a knack to make her family and friends feel special. And when she graced the dance floor, you couldn't help but to watch her. We know she is in a beautiful place now...until we meet again, we hold you in our thoughts!

Mary Ann was such a beautiful soul. She was always there if I needed someone to talk to or vent to. We had many conversations sitting at her little table in kitchen sipping on our coffee. I remember she always had these little solar flower things that would sit in her window seals and they'd be just dancing away when the sun hit them! There wasn't a conversation I couldn't talk to her about and she never judged. She'd call me in the mornings and tell me she just put on a fresh pot of coffee and to walk down and have a cup! We'd somehow end up making breakfast and giggling about something silly along the way. She taught me how to cook pierogis from scratch and giggle a little if I messed up but always lended a helping hand. She will be deeply missed and my heart is sadden that she is no longer with us. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and I love you all very much.

Aunt Mary Ann was a beautiful person with a heart of gold. She had a way of loving people, she knew people are all different but she loved everybody for who they were. Her smile and laugh were contagious and lite up a room. She made everyone feel loved and welcome. I have so many memories with her, she was the best Aunt growing up and I’ll cherish her love always. She will be missed by all that knew and loved her. As we celebrate her life today, though it will be sad all Glory be to God for giving her to us for so many memorable years. I love you Aunt Mary Ann, you will be missed by many. Until we meet again, I Love You!

I loved the times over the many years when we came to Houston for a visit, Mary Ann would cook up a feast and invite us all over to consume big pots of stew or soup or red beans & sausage, or her award winning chili, but my all time favorite was her Gumbo. We would all sit around the table or stand with a plate and talk and laugh. Mary Ann’s door was always open, literally! And when we were young and our Mom was struggling, there was absolutely no one more caring and loving and generous to help us through those hard times. I’ve never met anyone like her. There is an empty spot where her vitality filled the world.

Aunt Mary Ann, was a kind and dear person. With mom and her sisters, there were many times throughout life that their love and friendship brought the family together. During our childhood, we spent a lot of time at the bay, fishing and creating special memories. Most importantly, the time we spent around the kitchen table at her home in Spring Branch during the early years and around mom’s kitchen table at the lake in the later years, are memories that I will always cherish. God Bless Aunt Mary Ann and may she be sharing a great reunion with our family members that have passed on before. Much love to you all!
