Services for Imagene Robinson are scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 22nd, in the Craddock Memorial Chapel with Reverend Royce McClendon officiating. Interment will follow at Newport Cemetery. Visitation will be Tuesday evening from 6 to 7 p.m. at Craddock Funeral Home. Imagene Christian Robinson was born Aug. 4th, 1929 to Henry Lee Christian and Nellie Bumgarner Christian in Deese, Okla. She went to meet her Savior on July 18th, 2020 at the age of 90.
Imagene was raised in the Newport area. She married Leonard (Red) Robinson on Jan. 7th, 1949 in Gainesville, Texas. From this marriage they raised one Daughter, Carol Ann Robinson and three Sons, Stephen Jay Robinson, Kenneth Lynn Robinson, and Kevin Lee Robinson. Imagene was a homemaker for many years before becoming a cook for Plainview School. Combining her passions of cooking and serving others, she took great pride in her work. Growing up during the Great Depression, she developed the ability to create delicious meals out of seemingly nothing. No one ever left her home hungry. She was a kind and caring woman who loved everyone she met. She was a selfless lady who always put everyone before herself. Even in her final days, she worried more about others than herself. She was a hard worker spending many hours working on the family farm with her children. She always told her family “it’s through thick and thin that we make life better.” A strong Christian woman, she was a member of the Stobtown Freewill Baptist Church.
Imagene was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Nellie Christian; Brothers, JC Christian and twin brother Barber Gene Christian; Sisters, Maudie Putman and Marquette Herring and Daughter, Carol Robinson.
