Verna Mae Roberts, 81, of Franklin, died at 2:12 a.m. Tuesday, June 15, 2021, at Community South Hospital in Greenwood. Verna was born Liberty, Kentucky, the daughter of Lillie Myrtle DeHart Mason and Thomas Bailey Washington Mason. She married Thomas Charles Roberts on December 26, 1953. He preceded her in death on January 11, 2016. Verna was a member of the Liberty Apostolic Church in Liberty, Kentucky. It was there she began her deep roots in Pentecost standing strong for the Oneness of God. It was at this same church she received the Holy Ghost at the age of twenty. She attended the Edinburgh Apostolic Tabernacle for 23 years. Verna was the sweetest mother. She loved her children and raised them in the truth and fear of God. Having four boys, she was a very good disciplinarian, chastising them when it was needed. According to them, this was often and she was very successful in raising four good men. Verna was pleased to be a farmer’s wife and homemaker, devoting all her time to family and church. She was known for her signature biscuits and gravy, chicken and dumplings, beans n’ cornbread and that all famous, cast iron skillet. She was an excellent cook and prided herself in cooking big meals and you never went away hungry. A loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. The funeral will be at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, June 22, 2021 at The Edinburgh Apostolic Tabernacle with the Rev. Nathan Goen officiating.
