Mary Frances Roberts Bumgarner, age 77 of Spruce Pine, NC formerly of Martinsville, VA entered into the arms of her Lord and Savior early Saturday morning, November 6, 2021 at Autumn Care of Waynesville.  She became absent from her body here on earth and ever present with the Almighty God whom she lived to serve.  She was born August 26, 1944 in Caldwell County, the baby of 11, to the late Steve Roberts and Leila Caroline Newton Roberts.  She was member of Grassy Creek Baptist Church and former member of One Accord Baptist Church in Martinsville, VA.  Mary devoted her life in service for God through serving others.  She enjoyed visiting people in nursing homes and being a friend to all.  Nana loved singing in the church choir and with groups that traveled to sing for others.  She enjoyed going to the Senior Center for Bible study, crafting, and socializing.  Mary had the sweetest soul and was the most humble, Christian lady. She set the best example for her daughters and granddaughters to live by.
