The Roanoke Leader

NEWSPAPER Issue of Wednesday, February 19, 1908


Mrs. Meta Belle Adams entered upon this rest Sunday night of the 9th of February 1908. It was as Miss Meta Belle Roberts that she was best known to her friends, especially in Randolph County. She was born in Aiken, S.C. December 18, 1849 and was the oldest child of Young A. and Sarah Bledsoe Roberts. Surviving are five brothers and two sisters. The brothers are Messrs. E.B., W.Y., Dr. E.M. J.B. and T.R. Roberts. The sisters are Mrs. Mollie G. Atkinson and Mrs. Annie Truett. The gentlest being who ever wore earth about him was a sufferer, a weak, uncomplaining sufferer, and in this rspect Mrs. Adams was like her divine Lord and Master. Few were the days from her childhood to old age when she was free from pain. Yet, in the midst of all the trials that beset her earthly pilgrimage, her friends took knowledge of her that she has been with jesus. In the days of her youth in the morning of her life, she made her peace with him and was baptized into the fellowship of the West Point Baptist Church. On the 23rd of February 1907 when she was stricken with paralysis and from then until the hour of her death, a period of 351 days, she lingered in pain. We thought it was well that our loved one depart to be with christ, which to her was far better and we asked the lord to take her home, but he knew best. At last the message came to her, "it is enough, come up higher". It may be a delusion that those we loved and who have gone to be with christ are expecting our coming; if so, it is a sweet one... Until then we shall feel that she and others have gone before are at the beautiful gate, waiting and watching for us.
