Zenobia (Anderson) RobinsonAugust 28, 1917 ~ June 5, 2017 (age 99)
Zenobia Anderson Robinson, 99, passed away on June 5, 2017 in Bastrop.
She was born August 28, 1917 to Connie Anderson and Emma Kellough of Bastrop, Texas. She was raised in Bastrop. Over the next 99 years she thrived, contributing to the burgeoning and intimately connected community of Bastrop. She boldly affirmed Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at a very early age. With the help of the Holy Spirit, she performed by a standard of excellence serving as a perennial leader in the city of Bastrop. As an entrepreneur, she worked for the beautification of women and girls for decades as a cosmetologist. She gracefully served many committees – Combined Community Action, Bastrop Senior Citizens, MLK Scholarship Committee, Kerr Community Center and many more. She served her church for over eight decades as the Paul Quinn AME Church Sunday School teacher and superintendent. In the past, she also served as the missionary society president, president of the stewardess board, choir president, church secretary and elsewhere she could fill the gap.
Zenobia Robinson was ever faithful until the job was complete. She was born a leader. As the second oldest girl of five sisters and two brothers, she was the last surviving member of the Connie and Emma Anderson immediate family. As a young woman, she married Clanford Robinson and later gave birth to two girls, Ina and Zenobia “Sis” (deceased).
Zenobia leaves behind her daughter, Ina Smith; three grandchildren, Laura Abron, David Smith (Mikella) and Michael McDonald; and great-granddaughter Abria Abron; along with a host of nieces and nephews and loving friends.
