Linda Rayburn Clark Roberts

Linda Roberts, a beloved member of the Dayton community, passed away in her home under loving hospice care on Wednesday morning, April 24, 2024, in Dayton, Texas. She was born Linda Rayburn Clark on March 5, 1951, in Anahuac, Texas.  She grew up in Hull-Daisetta and attended high school there. She was married to Brad Roberts for 52 years and raised 3 children, moving between Highlands, Baytown and then settling in Dayton for the past 32 years.   

 

She was the glue and foundation of her family and extended family - giving continuous love and support to her husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, extended family, friends and coworkers, all of whom will miss her dearly.  Her love of gathering family and friends for her home cooked meals made any occasion memorable.  She created long lasting and meaningful friendships with many.  Her greatest quality was in being herself - giving her sweet spirit and compassion to others, always providing a listening ear, a shoulder to lean on, a helping hand when needed and always knowing the right words to say.  

 

Linda dedicated 14 years of her later life to caring for children in the baby room at Kreative Kids Daycare in Dayton and prior to that spent 20 years working at Today's Rental in Liberty. Her nurturing spirit and kindness left a lasting impact on all the lives she touched.

 

Linda was actively involved in various churches over the years. She found solace and strength in her faith with her different church families at Grace Community Baptist Church, Calvary Baptist Church and Gum Grove Baptist Church in Dayton, and Grace Baptist Church in Liberty.

 

Linda is survived by her daughters Carolyn Beitz and Melissa "Sissy" Leal (Ernst), brother Thomas Clark, sister Patricia Clark, grandchildren Jason Beitz (Patience), Holly Whittington (Mike), Sam Leal, and Harvey Leal. She is also survived by her great-grandchildren Wayne, Ethan, Harmony, Brianna, and Ryan, as well as her nieces Debbie Fink (Andreas), Pamela Barber, Rochelle Gallegos (Chris) and many more extended family.  She was known by many different names by those who loved her - Honey, Mama, Aunt Linda, Sister, and Nana.

 

She was preceded in death by her parents Charles E. Clark Jr. and Maxine Carr Clark, husband Charles Brad "C. B." Roberts Sr., son Charles "Brad" Roberts Jr., and brother John E. Clark, Sr.

 

A visitation to honor Linda's memory will take place on Friday, April 26, 2024, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Pace-Stancil Funeral Home in Dayton. The funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2024, starting at 10:00 AM at the same location.

 

Pallbearers will be Jason Beitz, Sam Leal, Harvey Leal, Matthew Crawford, Chris Gallegos, and Allen Green. Honorary Pallbearers will be Wayne Beitz and Ethan Beitz.

 

In her final moments, Linda was surrounded by her loving family as she transitioned peacefully into eternity. Her legacy of love and compassion will continue to inspire all those who were fortunate enough to know her. Linda's memory will forever remain etched in the hearts of those who had the privilege of sharing in her journey through life.

 

Linda asked for those who might wish to send a floral tribute to send plants that will be shared with her surviving family members so that they could continue remembering her daily through a growing tribute.
