Dear Friends,

The Democratic Women of North Carolina offers our sincere condolences to Mr. Jack Roberts and family, on the loss of our 2014 Democratic Woman of the Year Recipient, Shirley Roberts of Madison County.  The arrangements for Shirley’s service are being handled by Blue Ridge Funeral Service and you may view those at this link:   Shirley Roberts.

Shirley is the second dedicated leader for the Democratic Women of North Carolina that has passed this year, and we ask that you remember us as our hearts are also heavy with the passing of Leola Jones, President of the Democratic Women of Franklin County, who passed March 2, 2017.

We will miss both of our dear and loyal friends, Shirley Roberts and Leola Jones. We are thankful for the time we spent marching together for the cause and are praying that God will give their families strength, comfort, and peace to endure these difficult times.
