A devoted wife, mother and "Mema" which came natural to Reva. She loved her family with all that she was. Retirement came early when she found out that she was going to be a Mema for the first time. One of her favorite jobs was being Mema. She loved going on school trips, ball games, trips to the beach, vacations and whatever adventure the grandchildren would take her on. She never missed an opportunity for a picture at any special event with the Grandchildren.
Many came to know and love Reva when she opened up her home to the community for Halloween and Christmas. She started the Roberson's Angels 10 years ago by allowing the community to come to her house to have pictures taken with Santa for a donation. The donations were always put right back in the community at Christmas.
A celebration of life will be held, Sunday, September 12th 2021 at 3:00 pm at Plymouth Church of Christ in the Family Life Center. Jay Hardison will be officiating the service. The family visitation will follow the celebration of life.
Arrangements are by Maitland Funeral Home, Plymouth.
