Heaven has a new choir member – Annette Wambles Roberson.

In the 1970s, she was crowned Miss Covington County. Those who knew her enjoyed her angelic singing voice and piano playing abilities. Sharing these talents brought her much joy.

Moving to Destin, Fla., she and her former husband, Jimmy Roberson, had two children Mandy and Blake. In the late 1990s, she was a Destin realtor, and was most recently employed by Wyndam Resorts.

She was most thrilled to be “Nana” to her two grandchildren, Alayna and Jayce.
