Ms. Willie Roberts Obituary

On November 27, 1943, in Blaine, Mississippi, a Queen was born Willie Bell Norwood to her loving parents Louise Norwood and Eddie Glover of Blaine, Mississippi.

Willie Bell was the strongest women you would ever meet. She attended school in Doddsville, Mississippi. She was later baptized at the age of 12 years old at Jacob Chapter Baptist Church in Blaine, Mississippi. She would often reminisce about her time in homemaking class and being the best student, which enabled her to cook for the principal of her school, which she was very proud of. She was a homemaker who was mother to many. Willie Bell was a kind, empathetic, generous soul who brought smiles to many faces. Willie Bell loved children, especially her grand and great grandchildren. She would often look after the children in her community. She was known for her delicious meals. Her family loved her chicken and dressing, potato salad and sweet potato pie. She loved to watch television, spend time with her family and listening to music.

On Saturday, March 2, 2024 Willie Bell Norwood Roberts entered into eternal rest surrounded by her family. She was proceeded in death by her husband: Ezell Roberts Jr., her parents: Louise Norwood and Eddie Glover, daughter: Felicia Ann Blackson, granddaughters: Alicia Davis and Sandrea Lenior Blackson, sisters: Minnie Bell Davis (twin), Bernice Miller, Winnie Mae Coleman, and Ann Blackson, and a very special friend: John Guy.

She was survived by her five children: Shirley Jackson of Milwaukee, WI; Lathonia Culpepper, Tyrone Pittman, Lakesha Roberts, and Crystal Guy all of Michigan City, IN; two siblings: Luther Norwood of Sunflower, Mississippi; and Mary L. Bradley of Michigan City, IN; her grandchildren: Shawana Lofton, Tiera Lofton, Dejuan Rupert Sr., Talisha Roberts, Lacreasha Roberts, Donald Culpepper Jr., Chevis Blackson, Tyrasha Stapleton, and London Roberts, with loving acknowledgement of a great- grandson: Prince Lenior, a host of other great-grandchildren and a special friend: Willie Steward.
