Iva Jewell Roberts

Iva Jewell Roberts, 81, of Logan WV, went to her heavenly home on Saturday, March 19, 2022.  She was born on October 21, 1940, in Logan to the late Harold Buster and Virginia Baisden.  In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her sister Joyce Ross. 


Iva was a very faithful member of the Maryetta United Baptist Church, where she enjoyed singing in the choir and was actively involved in the Ladies Circle until her illness no longer allowed her to continue.  She was an avid reader who shared her passion for reading with others.  Iva was a homemaker who at all times put her family’s needs before her own.  She was always actively involved with her children’s school functions and extracurricular activities as they were growing up and continued to support her grandchildren in the same manner. 


Those left to cherish her memory are her husband of 61 years,  Raymond Roberts, of Holden WV, her children Sabrina Ward and her husband Harold of Logan, WV;  David Roberts and his wife Michelle of Logan, WV; and Andrea Neas and her husband Michael of Greeneville, TN;   grandchildren Zachary Johnson, Megan Baker and husband Charlie, Sydnee Roberts, Abby Herndon, Ryan Roberts, Tanner Neas and Aarron Ward; great-grandbaby Miles Maverick Baker, who she was able to meet and enjoy during the first six months of his life.  Oh, how she loved watching videos of him each and every day.  She had many nieces, nephews, and cousins who held special places in her heart, as well as her grand- dogs Jay, Tilley, Karma, Astro, Jet, and Bodhi.


Pallbearers will be David Roberts, Michael Neas, Harold Ward, Ryan Roberts, Charlie Baker, and Eddie Joe Canterbury.  Honorary Pallbearers will be Zack Johnson, Brian Ross, and Steven Bazzilla.    


Visitation will be at the Akers-James Funeral Home on Wednesday, March 23rd from

6pm to 9pm.


Funeral services will be conducted by the Reverend Lonnie Gore Jr. at 11am on Thursday, March 24th at the funeral home.  Burial will follow at Highland Memory Gardens.

This saddens my heart, to know Iva was to love her. I grew up with her children and seen the love she shared with all of us as we was children and always was encourgeing to all even as we became adults. My thought and prayers are with this presious family today and the days ahead of them.
