Thera Mae Roberts Marble, Age 96, enters Heaven on Tuesday July 21, 2020, Thera Mae (Roberts) Marble, an Ohio High school English Teacher for 31 years, entered the Gates of Heaven, peacefully passing at her Panama City, Florida home of 30 years. A devout Christian of the Methodist faith, a great grand-daughter of Methodist Minister Caelie Newton Sadler, grand-daughter of Reverend Jasper Newton Sadler, and daughter of Donna Mae (Sadler) Roberts, Methodist Church Sunday School Teacher, all of Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee's Sadler's Chapel, United Methodist Church. A knowledgeable and avid reader of the Bible, Thera was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Panama City, Florida. Thera Mae was born June 10, 1924 in Chattanooga, Tennessee to Theodore William Roberts Sr. and Donna M Roberts. Her father was a merchant store manager, and the Roberts family had resided in Edenton, North Carolina, Columbia and Lebanon Kentucky. A double tragedy, on Christmas Eve, 1944, the ""Robert's Five and Dime Store"" burnt down in Columbia and first cousin, Joseph Newton Sadler was KIA WWII in Germany. A 1945 Graduate of Union College, Barbourville, Kentucky, Thera Mae married the love of her life, Duane Bradshaw Marble of Ashland, Ohio, on 11 July 1950 in Louisville, Kentucky. Since 1952, the couple resided in Ashland Ohio, where Thera gave birth to three sons, who have survived her: DeCody Brad, a retired Army Sergeant; Kenton Randall, a retired Ohio Corrections Officer and Duane Brett Marble, an Ohio State, Mt. Vernon Developmental Center employee, who married Kathy Mickley, a retired Kroger Store Manager. Since April 29 1958, when Thera's husband Duane had his fatal auto accident, the widow, Thera single-handedly successfully raised these servants of the community. In 1960, a graduate of Ashland College of Ohio, Thera obtained an Ohio Certification for Teaching. Sequentially, from 1958 – 1966, while residing in Ashland Ohio, Thera was a substitute teacher at Ashland Highschool and Junior HS, an English and Biology Teacher at Haysville HS and West Homes HS in Millersburg. For 23 years, from 1966 – 1989, Thera was an English and Literature Teacher at Mt. Vernon HS. Dedicated to her profession, she would stay up to 3:00 AM in the morning during the school week grading school papers, correcting grammar, providing individual attention to each student's work. Many nephews and nieces, who all love her, survive Aunt Thera. Thera, physically petite, spoke with a soft southern accent, but she is a fine example of the strength of womanhood. She overcame all obstacles, love, and provided for her growing boys. A model for all young women to emulate. God has blessed all who knew her, with the presents of her good soul and strength of spirit. Another great Angel for Heaven.
