Roby Marie Lester Johnson, 94, was born July 24, 1927 in Wills Point, TX, the daughter of Sam and Lida Coleman Lester.  Roby passed away on December 15, 2021 in Dallas, TX. She attended her grade school years at Cedar Grove and graduated from Wills Point High School in 1944. Roby worked many jobs over the years, Eubanks Hardware and Funeral Home and Van Zandt Livestock Commission in Wills Point, Pollack Paper Company and retired from Dal-Tile with over 20 years as payroll clerk and shipping department dispatcher in Dallas.  She was also very active in the PTA of Dallas ISD.  She married Billy Alvis Johnson and they lived in Dallas until 1970 when they moved to their ranch in the Warsaw Community.  She was treasurer of the Mt.
