Shirley Rae Roberson Waters

September 9, 1937 — August 10, 2018

Shirley Rae Roberson Waters, 80, a resident of Highland Haven, Texas, passed from this life, Aug. 10, 2018. She and her twin brother, Gary, were born on Sept. 9, 1937, to Jesse and Jackie Roberson at home in Garden Grove, California. She attended Texas Tech University where she met her husband, Clyde.

Shirley had a successful career in business until she retired in 1987. She was a co-founder of Setpoint, Inc., an engineering firm in Houston. After retirement, she and husband Clyde built their dream home in the hill country on Lake LBJ. She loved looking out over the water from her kitchen window.

Shirley was very social and philanthropic. These two traits led to her involvement in Epsilon Sigma Alpha (ESA), a national service organization. She was a lifetime member of ESA and had always been an active member in her local chapter of Lambda Nu in Kingsland. Her faith and membership at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church was another important part of her life. Lastly, was her family which she loved to have near her.

She is preceded in death by her husband of almost 62 years Clyde, her parents Jesse and Jackie, and brothers Gary and Larry. She is survived by her daughter Vicki Tallman and husband Curtis, daughter Linda Waters, and son Richard Waters and wife Shelli. She also leaves behind grandchildren, Crystin McDonnell, Shane Waters, Zach Waters and wife Shelby, and Jessica Marr and husband Austin, several great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

A memorial service is planned for 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25, at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 1803 Ranch to Market Road 1431, Marble Falls. The Rev. Danielle Casey will officiate. An online register can be found at
