Ms Mildred was just at my shop getting her hair done not long ago. She played catch with my 10 year old son. I'm so thankful for that memory. She was happy to play with him and he was having fun with her. Love her. May she rest in peace. Prayers for all that loved her.
Teresa....sending my condolences and prayers your way. God will provide strength and comfort to get us through the difficult times.
As the sister of one of my best friends in High School, Eddie Robinson, I knew the Robinson family quite well. In our high school years Marilyn was always very quiet and did not exhibit the outgoing personality of Eddie. That appears to have changed over the years.I found her very forthcoming about Eddie's death while serving in the US Army and his only son, a Veterinarian, who resides in Australia while preparing to honor Eddie at the 60th Anniversary of the Benton Class of 1956.My sincere condolences are extended to Marilyn's Family!
Condolences for your loss.. She and Charles were one of the community cornerstone's I will always remember.
Mildred was such a kind, sweet friend. She was always willing to do for anyone who needed help. Teresa, I pray that you will experience the comfort that only God can provide in the loss of you mom.
Mildred was a sweet lady and will be missed by all. I wish I was able to come to the services, Arthuritis in both knees prevent this. May God surround each of you with HIS sweet love.
Mildred was such a kind woman. We loved the time we had to get to know her through our Mamaw Bonnie, church, and when she watched our puppy, Zoey. She will be missed. Prayers for your family.
Always thinking of others. A big heart for others who suffered. Loved all of her pets as her family.
I’m so sorry to hear about your Mom. Our prayers are with you and your family. My the Lord comfort you through this time.
