Clady Mills Robertson went to be in the arms of Jesus on Friday March 25, 2022. She joined her husband, Charles L. Robertson, Jr., her parents Joe and Callie Mills, her son, Joey, and his wife Sherry. She leaves behind many loving family members including her sons Chuck, Steve (Renée), and Todd (Tammy). Her much-loved grandchildren are Nathan, Jarrod (Angie), Jacob, Arron (Abby), Lauren, Andy, Matthew (Sophia), Elizabeth, Jonathan, and Joy. She has one great-granddaughter named Adalyn. Coming from a large family, she is also survived by her sister Jan (Jim), brother Dan, sisters-in-law Jeanne and Virginia, brother-in-law Lawrence Robertson, and many nieces and nephews including their spouses, kids, and grandkids.
Clady was from a very athletic family and was very proud of her high school basketball career and with good reason. Her senior year, their girls’ team won the Tennessee State Championship Tournament. She encouraged all of her children that were interested in athletics to do their best and to maintain the highest standards of sportsmanship.
She was trained as a bookkeeper and held that position off and on for many years – from working at a bank shortly after high school graduation (where she met a tall, dark stranger that she ended up marrying) until she finished her career as a bookkeeper at Cathedral of the Cross where she worked for 32 years. After retirement she travelled some but spent most of her time with family.
There will be a Celebration of Life on Friday April 1, 2022, at Faith Community Fellowship, 7660 Gadsden Hwy, Trussville, AL. Visitation for her many friends begins at 2:00 pm and the service will begin at 3:00 pm, Reverend Ricky Hall presiding. On Saturday, April 2nd, there will be a funeral service at Higgins Funeral Home at 213 Market Street East, Fayetteville, TN, David Mills, her nephew, presiding. Visitation begins at 2:00 pm and the service at 3:00 pm with graveside to follow at the Blanche cemetery.
Flowers are appreciated, but if you would like to make a donation in Mom’s name to the Parkinson’s Foundation (parkinson.org), any of the water purification projects, like through World Vision (worldvision.org) for Third World countries, or to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital (stjude.org) that would be appropriate, too.
I played basketball with Clady at Lincoln Co. High School. She was such a sweet and pretty girl. There was a smile for everyone.
