Wendy D. Roberts, born on October 06, 1970, in Chesterfield County, South Carolina, passed away on the night of Sunday, March 10, 2024, at Four Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care’s Elizabeth House in Flat Rock, North Carolina, following a long hard battle with breast cancer and stroke. She was 53 years old.


Wendy was a beacon of light in the lives of many, dedicating 30 years to shaping young minds as an elementary school teacher at Briarcliff Elementary School in Cary, North Carolina. Her passion for education touched countless hearts and inspired generations of students.


Outside of her career, Wendy found joy in the simple pleasures of life. She loved to immerse herself in books, tend to her garden, and explore new destinations through travel. Her warm spirit and kind heart endeared her to all who had the pleasure of knowing her.


Wendy was a devoted member of Pleasant Plains Baptist Church in Apex, North Carolina, where she actively participated in church activities and found solace in her faith. Following her retirement, she and her beloved husband, John, relocated to Hendersonville, North Carolina, where they embraced a new chapter of their lives together.


Surviving Wendy is her loving husband of 28 years, John H. Roberts; her parents, Tommy and Linda Davis of Wilmington, North Carolina; her sister, Robyn Davis of Wilmington, North Carolina; her father-in-law and mother-in-law, John and Susan Roberts of Flat Rock, North Carolina; and her faithful canine companion, Fergus.


A celebration of Wendy’s remarkable life will be held on Friday, March 15, 2024, at 2:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Forest Lawn Funeral Home in Hendersonville with Pastor Greg Dixon officiating. She will be laid to rest in Forest Lawn Memorial Park-Hendersonville.


In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a memorial donation in Wendy’s memory are asked to consider, Four Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care Elizabeth House, 571 South Allen Road, Flat Rock, North Carolina 28731 or by visiting www.fourseasonscare.org.

Mrs. Roberts was my third grade teacher at Briarcliff and one of the teachers that inspired me to become a teacher. I am now a teacher at Briarcliff and I had the pleasure of getting to teach with her a few months before she retired in 2020. Before she retired, She graciously passed down her teacher library to me, along with many other things to use in my class. we shared many stories of my time in third grade. She found old pictures and work samples from then too and shared them with me. It was such a pleasure to know her as a student and as an adult. My condolences to her family. Rest in peace Mrs. Roberts 💛
