PEGGY ANN KEATON ROBERTS, 94, FORMERLY OF RUSSELL COUNTY, KY

 
Peggy Ann Keaton Roberts, 94, was born in Ashland, KY on June 15, 1928 and passed away on Friday, July 30, 2022. She grew up in Huntington, West Virginia, a daughter of the late William Homer Keaton and Ruth Bragg Keaton.
 
 
In 1949 Peggy married Wendell Arthur Roberts and they soon moved to Kentucky Christian College in Grayson, Ky to enter the ministry. They served many churches in Kentucky as students. They ministered to the Peaks Mill Christian Church in Frankfort, KY, Macedonia Church of Christ in Lexington, KY, Highlawn Church of Christ in Huntington, WV, Elkins Church of Christ in Elkins, WV, First Christian Church in Covington, VA, Peaks Mill Christian Church in Frankfort, KY, Morristown Christian Church in Morristown, IN, Olive Hill Church of Christ in Olive Hill, KY, Highlawn Church of Christ in Huntington, WV along with several part time ministries after retirement. Peggy was the “old time stereotypical” preacher’s wife. She housed guests, cooked for crowds, directed the music, taught others to direct music, was a sought after soloist, taught volunteer teachers how to teach. She mentored many a young person headed to Bible College and ministered to women’s groups as a conference speaker throughout the US. She worked hard to go back to school after her children were in school and obtained her Master’s Degree in education. She directed an independent school for handicapped children, taught the learning disabled, Kindergarten and First Grade. Her teaching didn’t stop in the classroom!
 
Her strength as a woman, mother and Christian is an example she leaves her family. Visuals of her faithfulness to her morning devotions are memories the family hold dear.
