Mrs. Robinson was born in Martin County, NC on December 31, 1922 to the late John Alfred Revels and Mary Bell Lilley Revels. On August 7, 1949 she married Willie Guy Robinson who preceded her in death on August 11, 2005. She was a graduate of the Tayloe Hospital School of Nursing and was a Registered Nurse for Beaufort County Hospital until her retirement. According to her beloved grandsons, she made the best fried chicken ever. All those who knew her were blessed by her presence and friendship. She was devoted to her family, her many friends and her nursing colleagues. Her mission seemed to be to serve others. In her own words, people were her pleasure. She thought of gardening as her therapy, and, as a lifelong learner, loved to read.
Survivors include her daughter, Melinda R. Hardison and husband Don of Chapel Hill and La Jolla, CA, two grandchildren, Donnie McCoy Hardison, III and wife Jennifer of Los Angeles, John Christopher Hardison of Philadelphia, PA, a great granddaughter, Taylor Alexandra Hardison of Los Angeles, a brother, Archie Revels of Plymouth, a sister, Mary Dare Bowen of Williamston, and many nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by two brothers, Russell Revels, Willie Revels, and two sisters, Della Frances Taylor and Betty Jean Lambdin.
The family would like to extend a special thanks you to Susan Griffin and her husband Ronnie for their years of loving care.
The family will receive friends following the graveside service.
