Patricia Ann Robinson was born on Jan. 4, 1947, in Ryan, to James Finis Robinson and Lizzie Bell (Stone) Robinson. She grew-up in and around the Ardmore, Dickson, Davis and Sulphur communities.
Pat married Bill Stone and they were the parents of three children, Billy, Sharon and Lee; she then was married to Lonnie Robinson and they were the parents of four children, Susan, Dori, Patrick and Helen. Pat was devoted to caring for people and creating friendships that have lasted her lifetime.
A member of Trinity Baptist Church, Pat had worked as a waitress and a nurse’s aide, but the job she loved the most was being a Mom and Memaw. In Mom’s spare time as a young woman, you could find her cuttin-a-rug on any ole’ dance floor she could find. Later she turned that over to the young’uns, after teaching all her kids to two-step in the living room. She found her new hobbies to be crocheting afghans, especially for her newborn grandchildren, playing Skip-Bo and Phase 10. She also enjoyed working in her yard, finding new treasures at garage sales and being the Queen of Scanner-Land; which led to many rushed jumps in Nana’s vehicle to go on a “mission” following lights and sirens.
Pat is preceded in death by her parents; 15 siblings; a beautiful daughter, Sharon; grandson, Christiphor; great-grandson, William; countless nieces and nephews, and two men who thought she was tamable, husbands, Bill Stone and Lonnie Robinson.
Survivors, who will forever cherish precious memories include her children, Billy Stone and wife Sandy, of Ardmore; Lee Stone and wife Mary, of Ardmore; Susan Russell and husband Thomas, of Dickson; Dori Landers and husband Mark, of Sulphur; Patrick Robinson and wife Moneta, of Whitehouse, Texas; Helen Caudle and husband Brent, of Ardmore; a special son-in-law, Tim Brake and wife Lawana, of Ardmore; grandchildren: Billy, Justin, William, Brent, Todd, Kedan, Tracie, Cherokee, Courtney, Tiffany, Kinsley, Devin, Jonathan, Halie, Shane, Leena, Mary, Maggie, Cameron, Steven, Cooper, Hunter, Melody, Sarahlyn, and Isabella; great-grandchildren: Hayli Jade, Kiersten, Journee, Kimberlyn, Joshua, Luna, Braxton, Aleighna, Bryce, Terra, Rilyn, Madilyn, Aleigha and Gatlin; also special friends she made during her stay at Elmbrook Home. Mom kept her promise, and took the secret of her favorite child with her.
Mom went on her final mission July 2, 2019, from Elmbrook Home in Ardmore; at the age of 72 years, 5 months and 28 days. She will have her last, ‘hoorah’ at 2 p.m. Monday, July 8, 2019, in the Centennial Chapel of Harvey-Douglas Funeral Home conducted by Rev. Terry Tolbert.
