June 16, 2022
April 3, 1935 - June 7, 2022
Mary Katherine "Kat" Roberson was born on April 3, 1935 in Hohenwald to the late Johnny Herman and Roena (Churchwell) Clayton. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, the love of her life, Melvin "Jenks" Roberson; her brother Jerry (Barbara) Clayton; sister Nina (Claude) Carroll; grandson Shawn Daniel Branch; and nephew Anthony Carroll.
Kat was the best mother and grandmother who loved her daughter and grandchildren dearly. She was kind and nurturing to everyone. She was an amazing cook; her family was always greeted with a spread of food when they arrived for a meal. She was always sure to have her hair done just right, no matter what she had planned for the day. She was an avid yard saler; going to others or having her own. In her spare time she enjoyed going fishing and sewing too.
Kat is survived by her daughter Judy (Clark) Branch; grandchildren, Brandon and Daniel; great-grandchildren, Abri, Hayden, Amberlynn and Addi; nieces and nephews, Gayle Tatum, Terry (Gwenda) Carroll, Kenneth (Jenny) Carroll, Tommy (Sandra) Clayton, Johnny (Kim) Clayton, Lisa (Mike) Harlow, David (Linda) Quillen, Ricky (Melissa) Roberson, Karen (John) Eglinton, Josh Roberson, Adam Roberson, and Duchess Harper.
Visitation and funeral services were held Sunday, June 12, at McDonald Funeral Home in Hohenwald with Johnny Clayton officiating. Burial followed in Swiss Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude's or to the funeral home to offset funeral expenses.
