Betty Joe Roberson Thomas

      Mrs. Betty Joe Roberson Thomas, age 79 of Stuart, passed away Sunday, February 11, 2024, at her home.  She was born in Patrick County on July 19, 1944, to the late Edgar P. Roberson and Edna Foley Roberson.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Sherman Eugene Thomas; a granddaughter, Anna Caroline Clark; one sister, Carole Gene Triplett; and an infant brother, Kermit Edgar Roberson.  Betty Joe retired from Hanesbrands with 40 years of service.  She was a member of New Hope Church of the Brethren.   She was truly Daddy’s girl who enjoyed gardening, fishing, spoiling her grandchildren, and being “GG” to her great grandson, Miles.  She was famous for her fudge and apple cakes that she always made every Christmas.   She loved sharing her garden with friends and family, was quick to take a meal to a neighbor experiencing a loss, and was frequently called on to make fried chicken, gravy, and biscuits for family meals.

        Surviving are her daughter and son-in-law, Sandra and Lee Clark of Roanoke; two grandchildren, Cary-Grace James and husband, Josh, Andrew Perry Clark and wife, Allison; one great grandson, Miles James; and a niece, Barbara Midkiff and family.

        A memorial service will be held Thursday, February 15, 2024, at 2:00 PM at Moody Funeral Home in Stuart with Pastor Rick Randall officiating.  Burial will be private.  The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home.  Memorials may be made to New Hope Church of the Brethren, 2007 New Hope Rd, Stuart, VA 24171.  The family would like to thank the many friends and neighbors who helped since Sherman’s passing, especially his brother, Lewis, and friends that became family; Cristy Allen, Allison and Corby Boyd, and Wayne and Teresa Stevens.
