peacefully, February 15, 2023, in her home with family. She loved to enjoy a cold coke-a-cola, all things turquoise, and peanut butter - but especially Nutter Butters.
She was a woman of many talents and was a devoted member of the Cominto Baptist Church.

    You were there when I needed someone as a teenager and became a Mom for me and a wonderful role model. You introduced me to hair conditioner and skin so soft.. I will always be grateful to you. I love you and you will always have a special place in my heart.

    I met Robbie in the 5th grade at Wilmar School and went on to become good friends with her. We played basketball together, fussed occasionally, and laughed a lot. I'm so sorry I didn't get to visit with her much since school - my sincerest sympathy to her family; I know this is a painful and stressful time. God be with you.

    Our road has never been easy but God gave me the last year with you to mend that so we could finally be in a mother & daughter relationship, I can never thank Him enough for that time we had. There were plenty of arguments & distance for a long time but you are my mother and I always loved you, tell Granny Dot & everyone else Hello & I love them. See you at the Gates of Heaven someday to finish our conversation. RIP MOM
