WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the loss of one of its own.

Nearly a week ago, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office announced the passing of Officer Susan Roberts of the Corrections Bureau.

The office said she was hospitalized while at work for COVID-19 before passing away.

“Officer Roberts was a mother, grandmother and a great grandmother and will be sorely missed by all,” Sheriff Robert Chody wrote in a Facebook post.

Visitation is set for Friday, Sept. 18 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Ramsey Funeral Home on Williams Drive in Georgetown. The funeral service will be held at the same funeral home Saturday, Sept. 19 at 10 a.m.

There won’t be a vehicle procession, the sheriff’s office said, and due to COVID-19 restrictions, only 75 people will be allowed inside the funeral home. Everyone must wear a mask inside.

The funeral home will also live stream the funeral service online.

A GoFundMe for the family is set up to cover funeral, medical and transport expenses.
