Reya Blount Roller has been retired since 2013. Roller took care of her handicapped son until he was able to drive again in 2016. He was hurt in a car accident in July 2013, which resulted in a paralyzing spinal cord injury. Roller’s first grandchild, a boy, was born in October 2014, followed by a second grandson in June 2018. Roller says they are the light of her life! Other than being her grandchildrens’ backup sitter, she enjoys traveling, reading, and hanging out with friends. She does work part-time for a local funeral home, but that is very sporadic. Roller enjoys keeping in touch with classmates Janet Koonce Dumas, Susan Willets Roberts, and Kathy Midyette Anderson and reports that they get together several times a year.
