Myrtle “Pearl” Excene Roberts

Born February 1, 1932 in Kingston Jamaica

Died August 12, 2020 in Winter Park, Florida

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 22, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. at Metrolife Church, 910 South Winter Park Drive, Casselberry, Florida 32707.  Please note that those in attendance will be required to wear a mask and that seating will be physically distanced.

Ms. Myrtle died peacefully at Westminster Winter Park where she spent her last two months due to her declining health as a result of cancer.

She was known as the “Singing Housekeeper” at Winter Park Memorial Hospital where she was employed for twenty-two years.

As a born-again Christian she was well loved in the community and affectionately known by many that she witnessed the love of God to, as “The Jesus Woman.”  She lived a simple life and was also known, as she put it,  for her “giving out.”

She was the last of her generation and was preceded in death by two brothers and two sisters.  Also, by her son, Marlon Winter and two grandsons.  She is survived by her children, Judith Hyatt, Jerome Hyatt and Karen Brown, four grandsons, three great grandchildren and by many loving nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the benevolence fund at metrolife.org., or by mailing  a check to Metrolife Church. Ms. Myrtle had a heart for the homeless and those in need, and donations made in her honor will be used for this purpose. Please indicate in the memo section that the funds are in Memory of Myrtle Roberts.

    As a neighbor of Ms. Myrtle's I grew to love her and her outlook on life. My grandson Aiden loved to go show her his bowling scores and tell her how much he loved her pigeon peas and rice. She told me wonderful stories of Jamaica and growing up. Charitable and caring I loved her dearly and miss her every day, as does Aiden who always tells me Ms. Myrtle is "happy now in heaven", as I'm sure she is.

    Miss Myrtle was a very kind soul, she had a beautiful smile. She loved the Lord and she was a blessing to be with. We will miss her at our Ladies Bible Study.

    I am delighted to talk of the woman of God my Aunt Pearl was. She was never ashamed of the gospel of Jesus, or afraid to talk about Jesus to anyone. Her speech was always to the point and direct. She represented Jesus well, and as much as she knew how....
    "Love the unlovable, touch the untouchable, give, expecting nothing in return."
    I am happy about the legacy of spiritual wealth she has left for all of us . And I can just imagine how excited she was to meet her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ face to face Her soul is resting in peace, no pain, no more tears, no more worries

    Miss Myrtle, brought joy to everyone's life.I only knew Miss Myrtle through Nancy and Betty when we had our gatherings and especially at our Christmas party. She lit up the room and just found such enjoyment being around everyone and telling everybody how blessed she was and how Jesus was in her life always and ours too. She will be missed.

    Through the many conversations that we've had with Miss Myrtle, she never neglected to give Glory to the Lord Jesus, and to encourage our hearts. In one recent conversation she said to share food or some of your means with others. And don't try to leave life early. Wisdom from a great lady!

    Honored that she called me her "second best friend...the FIRST is JESUS!" Going to miss going to IHOP, picking her up for church, and listening to all her Jamaican stories! So happy we got to go to Jamaica together 3 years ago!

    We are so grateful to have had the privilege of knowing Myrtle. An encourager, a prayer warrior, and a passionate worshipper, her great love for Jesus was a torch for all to see. She has been a blessing to our family and, indeed, to our whole church body!
