Elizabeth, 87, of Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, formerly of Flint, passed away on Saturday, November 24, 2012 at Woodland Hospice House near Mt. Pleasant. Libbie was the daughter of Dannie and Lula May (Packard) Watson.

In December 1955, Libbie married Donald R. Roberts in Flint, Michigan. Donald preceded her in death on September 18, 2005.

Libbie was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Mt. Pleasant. She was a thirty-two year employee of the Carmen School District as an Elementary Media Specialist.

She was an avid reader, a very active member of her church, enjoyed traveling (she traveled twice to the Middle East with her church family), and was an active supporter with the volunteers at Central Michigan Community Hospital. Libbie was also a volunteer with the Flint Art Fair for many years. But of all the things she enjoyed, she loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren the most and treasured the time spent with them.

Surviving Libbie are her three daughters: Carolyn and Lorren Bice of Montrose, Michigan, Jennifer and Dale Kanera of Columbia, Maryland and Teresa and James Rupert of Mt. Pleasant, Michigan; also surviving are grandchildren: Shawna and Erick Blakey, Heather McMunigal, Joshua and Tamara Kanera, Jessica Kanera, Justin and Amy Kanera, Dexter Rupert and Jordan Rupert and great grandchildren, Hayley and Arden Kanera.

Libbie was preceded in death by her husband Donald, and both parents.

A funeral service celebrating Libbie's life was held on Friday, November 30, 2012 from the Rowley Funeral Home in Mt. Pleasant with Rev. Curt Jensen of the First United Methodist Church officiating. Following the funeral service, cremation took place.

The family has suggested memorial contributions to the First United Methodist Church in Libbie's name.
