Loyce Robertson went to her heavenly home to be with Jesus on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 in Conway, Arkansas, where she had lived for the past two years. She was born on December 2, 1933 to Doll and Alvie Arnold in Noah’s Fork, Tenn. 

She was married to Joe Robertson in Corinth, Miss. on March 5, 1954. They moved back to Henry, Tenn., where they lived, worked and farmed. Mrs. Robertson went back to school in 1968, and became an LPN. She worked for many years at Henry County Medical Center and Eastwood Clinic in, Paris, Tenn. before becoming the office nurse for Dr. Vince Tusa at the Paris Clinic. She retired from nursing in 1978 and spent her spare time working on the farm with Joe and putting up vegetables from their 1-acre garden. She loved to cook, especially desserts. She filled her freezer with cakes, cookies and pies for anyone who dropped by to visit or work.

In 1998, when they both fully retired they moved to McKenzie, Tenn. They were members of Henry Church of Christ and later transferred their membership to McKenzie Church of Christ.
