Mrs. Roberta Ann Cobbler Isaacs, 63, of 496 Belton Road, Mount Airy, passed away Sunday May 13, 2007, at Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem. Mrs. Isaacs was born October 4, 1943, in Surry County, to the late Roby Ray and Annie Irwin Cobbler. Mrs. Isaacs retired from Surry County Schools after 33 years of teaching. She taught at White Plains Elementary School for 28 years and later taught at Mount Airy Junior High School and Pilot Mountain Middle School. She was a lifelong member of Oak Grove United Methodist Church and a member of the Order of the Eastern Star Chapter 18 in Mount Airy. Roberta was very proud of her Scottish heritage and was a member of several genealogical societies in Surry County. As a result of her love of history, she researched countless hours for Civil War soldiers from Surry County so their names could be listed on the War Memorial in Mount Airy. She is survived by her husband of 44 years, Leonard Grady Isaacs of the home; two daughters and sons-in-law, Theresa and Tim Minter of Germantown, MD, and Rachel and Patrick Mayes of Mount Airy; three grandchildren, Brian Minter and Susanna Minter, both of Germantown, MD, and Maggie Mayes of Mount Airy; a sister and brother-in-law, Jane and Emerson Zapotosky of Las Vegas, NV; a brother and sister-in-law, James and Cinnie Cobbler of Mount Airy; and five brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Nancy and Ronnie Sparks and Ray and Birdie Isaacs, all of Mount Airy, Loyd and Jan Isaacs of Magnolia, KY, John and Becky Isaacs of Woodstock, GA, and Roger and Deloris Isaacs of Kernersville. In addition to her parents, Mrs. Isaacs was preceded in death by two grandsons, Nicholas Mayes and Christopher Mayes. The funeral service will be held Wednesday, May 16, 2007, at 2:00 PM at Oak Grove United Methodist Church. The service will be conducted by the Rev. William “Bill” Randolph, and burial will follow in the Oak Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery, with Eastern Star rites conducted by the Order of the Eastern Star Chapter 18. The Isaacs family will receive friends Tuesday from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at Moody Funeral Home in Mount Airy, where her body will remain until carried to the church to lie-in-state 30 minutes before the funeral service.
