She went to be with the Lord Jesus, peacefully in her home, on Friday, February 9,2024, in San Antonio, Texas, at the blessed age of 91 years.Acquillia grew up in Caldwell (Burleson), Texas in her early childhood years with her parents and siblings, butlater moved to San Antonio, Texas. She was known to live a life of hard work and dedication in everything shewas determined to accomplish, starting in her young teenage years working at a café alongside her twin,Priscillia, while attending Phillis Wheatley High School, graduating in 1952. After graduating from high school,she went on to complete General Education and Nursing classes at St. Phillips College and continued hercareer in Nursing at UT Health San Antonio and Southeast Baptist Hospital, while also dedicating her time andenergy for years in Domesticated Housekeeping for two loving families. It is notable to mention, that withtender affection and a respectable resolve to “honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long inthe land” (Exodus 20:12), Acquillia made sure to tirelessly care for, love deeply, and wholeheartedly assist herailing parents in her own home in their elderly years, even in the midst of her own active home and work life,and she did it exceptionally well!While she continued her love of learning and career advancement, Acquillia married Junior Rogers and wenton to have three children: Gay Nell Jackson, Debra (Willie) Miles, and Reginald (Lynn) Rogers.

She was faithfully committed to the Lord Jesus and loved to attend,give generously to, and serve at her home church, Dellcrest Church of Christ, until she could no longerphysically attend. Acquillia’s green thumb was evident through her love of maintaining her lawn and gardening,especially with roses and various flowers, and keeping attractive plants throughout her home. When youwalked through her front door it was filled with delicious home-cooked meals alongside a great-tasting coconutand lemon cake or a delicious banana pudding, a huge Thanksgiving dinner on the holiday, crazy laughter andfun stories, and just the place to be for her large immediate family or distant relatives coming to visit “AuntQuillia,” long-time friends who adored her, and the pitter-patter of feet by her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren.Acquillia was preceded in death by her devoted husband, G.W. Thomas; parents - Cerion and Eliza; her eightsiblings - Juanita, Maryland, Rayshaw, Cerion Earl, Mary, Calvin, and her paternal twin, Priscillia; and fourcherished bonus children – Glynn W. Thomas, Sandra K. Hardin, Alfred Eugene Thomas, and Clifton N.Thomas.

A celebration of life with family visitation and food will follow at the Timberwood Park Clubhouse (26631 Timberline Dr, San Antonio, TX 78260 – gate code 29717#). It is difficult to summarize over 80 incredible years of living but Roberta lived a busy, rewarding and full life. She worked side by side with her husband (married for 60 years), Wilburn, in running their auto-repair business, Ottmers Auto Service for 45\u0026#43; years. She could be found greeting customers, performing the accounting, and doing anything/everything to make a business be successful. Many family members, friends and customers always called her “Birdie” and her grandchildren called her “Grammy”. Wilburn and her had a love story that shows what true commitment and dedication is about - and their servanthood to each other will leave a mark on us all. She was a woman who had a strong, unwavering faith and lived a life representative of that. Roberta was always involved in her church (Holy Name and St Jeromes Catholic Church) and the elementary/middle school (Holy Name Catholic School) which her children attended. She was part of the PTC at the church and school for many, many years and was always heavily involved in the annual church/school festival and fund-raising events. She was quite the craft person, building spooky haunted whales out of refrigerator boxes and many things with paper mache. She had a very imaginative/creative mind and could always bring her ideas to reality. Roberta was the person who made things happen; there was no task too great for her and she did all things with excellence. She loved to fish with her husband and children at the coast in the land cut south of Corpus Christi, TX. There are many fond memories of a simpler time spent in the quiet of the ocean. She also loved to hunt doves (she was quite the markswoman) and spending time at their ranch west of Uvalde, TX. Roberta was social and a loyal connector of people. A group of 12 of her friends from high school played bunco and ate dinner every month for well over 50 years and her homemade egg rolls were famous. She was a woman full of grace and compassion, and a mother figure/role model for so many outside of even her immediate family. Roberta was bold and confident which led her to push new boundaries than what was set as an example for her. Her lifelong best friend, Carol Waclawczyk, and her fearlessly explored traveling and new adventures while teaching their daughters to be strong, self-aware and independent by their example. New York was a special place in all of their hearts, and always will be. Even when her mind began to fail her, she was still loved by all as her kindness and gentleness still was shining through. She was a friend to all, an enemy to none, and she will be deeply missed."
