On Thursday, July 4, 2013, Roberta Meadows Breeden went home to walk with the Lord.
Those of us left behind are saddened that she left this earthly body, but rejoice that she is in that mansion that has been prepared just for her. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has welcomed home a good and faithful servant. She has taught many the love and sacrifice of a Christian woman, but most especially paved the way to Christ for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her life has been a testament to all who knew and loved her.
She was the daughter of the late Samuel Raymond and Floriene Cubbage Meadows.
She was a homemaker and had worked at Sleepwear Inc. and Duplan. She loved the Lord most of all and she loved children and flowers, and cherished the times she spent with her family. She was a member of the Elkton Pentecostal Church and taught Sunday School for a number of years at the Upper Room Church, Furnace United Methodist Church and Hensley’s United Methodist Church.
On Oct. 21, 1940, she married Quay H. Breeden, who died on Feb. 11, 1997.
She is survived by sons, Bobby Breeden and wife, Linda, Terry Breeden and wife, Doris, all of Elkton; daughters, Elizabeth Knight and husband, Bobby of Grottoes, and Donna Williams and husband, Wayne, Sheila Morris and husband, Prentice, Linda Michael and fiancé, Worley “Mac” McCoy, all of Elkton; a sister, Reva Shifflett, Elkton; 18 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by sons, Calvin Breeden, Clement Breeden; and siblings, Charles Meadows, Ralph Meadows, Bernard Meadows and Ethel Downey.
Pastor Travis Hensley and the Rev. Nona Allen will conduct the funeral service 2 p.m. Sunday, July 7, 2013, at the Elkton Pentecostal Church. Burial will follow at Eastlawn Memorial Gardens near Harrisonburg. The family will receive friends Saturday evening (tonight) 6 to 8 p.m. at the Kyger Funeral Home in Elkton. Friends may also call at the Breeden home at any time. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to any one of the churches she attended.
