Elizabeth "Libby" Ann Roberts of Seymour, Indiana passed away on July 01, 2022 at home, surrounded by love, which is where she wanted to be. She tackled a six year battle with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia) with extreme strength and determination. Libby was born in Connersville, Indiana on March 1, 1946 to the late George and Ruth Kerrigan. On July 6, 1968, she married Dr. Jerry D. Roberts.
Libby loved learning and was a perpetual student, proudly receiving degrees from Indiana University (BS - 1967, MS - 1971 and MS - 1974), and Butler University (Ed.S,.1996). Her retirement in 2005, after 29 years as teacher and guidance counselor, brought enjoyment to grandchildren, traveling and baking her famous cookies! She enjoyed the beauty of living on Roberts Christmas Trees Farm, just north of Cortland. Libby was a member of Whites Creek United Methodist Church, Kiwanis, Tri Kappa Sigma Kappa and The Mental Health Association.
