Judith Mae Roberts started her earthly journey on April 27, 1949, the daughter of the late Winfield and Fraudie Pickett. On Sunday, November 10, 2019, while surrounded by her loved ones, the Lord sent his angels to bring her unto Him for eternal rest.
At an early age, she gave her life to Christ and joined Shiloh Baptist Church, Williamsburg.
“Judy”, as she was affectionately known, wore her heart on her sleeve. She gave shelter to many people and fed anyone who was hungry. Her beautiful and caring nature will forever be missed.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Lee Roberts, son, Sidney Piggott, sister, Gaynelle Chisolm, and two brothers, Walter Fleming and John Piggott.
She leaves to cherish her precious memories with her two daughters, Wanda Pierce (Ronnie) of Newport News and Lucretia Piggott of Williamsburg; two sons, Tyrone Piggott (Sharon) and Rodney Piggott both of Williamsburg; six grandchildren, Turrell (Brittany), and ShaKiera Pierce both of Newport News, Javon Piggott, Sterling Piggott, Diamond Piggott, and Da’Neal Taylor, all of Williamsburg; three great-grandchildren, Gabriel Covington, Londynn Pierce and Brooklynn Pierce; sister, Ruth V. Piggott of Richmond; five brothers, Arthur, Leslie, Winfield, Sherman (Desiree), and Bert (Betty) Piggott; caretaker and companion, John Jones; special friend, Chris Barlow; and a host of other loving relatives and friends.
