Barbara Muncie Roberts passed away on July 25, 2018. She was 88 years old. Born in 1930 in Minneapolis, she was the daughter of Scottish immigrants, Alexander Muncie and Jean McVey Muncie. Early in her life they moved to Houston where she attended Lamar High School in the 1940s. She married Royce Roberts, who became a bluebonnet landscape artist. In the 1970s, they moved to Burnet county, in the center of the country that Royce loved to paint. After forty years of driving around central Texas, photographing and painting landscapes, Royce passed. In 2015, Barbara entered the Oaks Nursing Center in Burnet, whose entire staff gave her loving care until the end. This enabled Barbara to live her life the way she wanted. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Nancy and Keith Spencer; her son and daughter-in-law, Charles and Susan Roberts; granddaughters Alyssa White, Rachel Kelley and Emily Roberts; grandson, Sean Roberts; and nephews, Alex Muncie of Houston and his family, and Michael Roberts and wife, Carolyn. Graveside service will be at Lakeland Hills Memorial Park, Park Road 4, Burnet County; Wednesday, August 1, 2018 at 10 A.M. The family is extremely grateful for the care shown to Barbara by the staff of the Oaks Nursing Center over the three years they had our mom as a resident.
