Mrs. Roberts was born November 8, 1934 in Franklin Parish and passed from this life on October 15, 2022 in Winnsboro, LA at the age of 87. She was a devoted member of Apostolic Faith Chapel in Gilbert, LA and worked as a nurse’s aide for Mary Anna Nursing Home in Wisner. She was very artistic in drawing and painting, and created many beautiful paintings. She was also a talented seamstress and made clothing for her family and others as well. Mrs. Margie was a spunky, sassy, yet honest little lady who would tell you her opinion and ideas whether you wanted her to or not. However, she was a godly, faithful woman who set an example for her family and others whom lived around her from day to day. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, grandmother, sister, friend, and a rock to many who looked to her as their role model and example. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She is preceded in death by her first husband, Otis Lee Roberts; her parents, Willie and Mary Kenney; and her siblings, Amos, Henry, Tillman, Sonny and Chester Kenney, Luella Boothe, Bernice Gillespie, Ruth Stephens and Lillie Roberts.

Survivors include her children, Karen Mabry and husband, Keith Luke of Houma, Darlene White and husband, Raymond of Ferriday, and Toby Roberts and wife, Connie of Harrison, AR; her husband, Charles William Walker; her brother, Phillip Kenney and wife, Jan of Gilbert; seven grandchildren, Spencer Bailey, Brian Mabry, Lance Henry, Jessica Henry, Constance Hendry, Kaylin LeBeau and Allison Roberts; also survived by twenty-four great-grandchildren, one great great-grandchild, and a host of extended family and friends.

Pallbearers will be great-grandsons, Jase Mabry, Austin Henry, Gregory Bailey, Cole Hendry, Cade Hendry and Gavin Henry. Honorary pallbearers will be Hunter Johns and Richard Bailey.

The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to Ricky Roberts, Tony and Becky Roberts for assisting and caring for their mother whenever she needed them to, especially when they were not able to be here themselves. Another special heartfelt thank you to her nurses’ aide at Plantation Manor, LaKeisha Bell.
