Jessie was born February 4, 1927 in Granville, New York the daughter of William J. and Myfanwy (Owens) Roberts. She was a 1944 graduate of Granville High School and a 1947 graduate of The Rutland Hospital School of Nursing with an RN degree. Shortly after starting her nursing career she married Richard T.

She was a longtime parishioner of Trinity Episcopal Church and a member of the Poultney Area St. David's Society; she was very proud of her Welsh heritage. Her life's journey was filled with the joy of weddings, births, family gatherings, sporting events, travel and a "Saratoga racetrack/casino day" every once in a while! Staying with Gwen & George at their Florida home was always a pleasure that she looked forward to. Jessie was a wonderful reserved lady, possessing a personality and charm which won for her a legion of friends. All who knew her, loved her, and her co-workers knew her for the genuine worth her soul possessed. No lovelier mother ever reared a family; no effort was too great when her children or husband was a concern. Every hour of the day she was accomplishing something worthwhile for them and it is reflected back in their love and admiration for their mother. Her presence among us during her long life will continue always as a loving remembrance. She made us better people. In addition to her parents she was predeceased by her husband of thirty eight years, Richard "Tudor" Roberts who died in 1987. Her son, Richard (Rick) Roberts 1992 and his wife, Joyce (Concepcion) Roberts 2004; her daughter Carol Roberts 2012. Also her sister Joyce Walsh (Harry) and her brother William J. Roberts (Marilyn).
