She was preceded in death by her father, Alvin Norman Roberts, Sr.  Laura completed her primary and secondary education in the Currituck County public school system.

Over the past several years, Laura was a valued employee of Fresh Market in Nags Head. Popular and dependable, Laura loved her job. She also loved her co-workers and regular customers- treating them like her family. Above all, Laura loved God. She served Him faithfully as a long-time and active member of her Powells Point Christian Church family. Laura cheerfully volunteered in many church projects and programs over the years.

Surviving Laura Roberts is her loving mother, Gloria Bateman Roberts; her brother, Alvin N. Roberts, Jr. (Sandi); her nephew, Curtis N. Roberts (Ashley); her niece, Megan E. Roberts; her great-niece, Hunter E. Roberts; her great-nephew, Walker W. Roberts (all of Shawboro, NC); and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family members, and dear friends.

The family is honoring Laura’s preference for the simplicity of cremation. Laura’s final wish to bless others has been fulfilled through tissue donation. The memorial service will be held at Powells Point Christian Church Wednesday, March 15, 2023 at 11 am. The family gratefully suggests that donations in Laura’s memory be made to Powells Point Christian Church.
