Essie B. Robinson was born April 9, 1935, in MerRouge, Louisiana, and moved to Portland, Oregon in 1969 with her seven children where she resided until she left us. Essie enjoyed gardening, fishing, playing cards and being with her family. Essie had a laugh that would make all around her laugh with her or offer a big smile. Essie could also make a mean pot of greens. She was a very, very, very good cook!
Essie B. passed away on Thursday, April 21, 2022, at the age of 87. Essie is preceded in death by her father, Lee George Robinson; mother, Lena Evans; her seven brothers, Alonzo, JD, Ronald, Donald, Robert, AC, and Earl; her two sisters, Suzie Q, and Anna Rose; and her four children, Lena Hill, Cynthia Robinson, George Robinson and Larry Robinson.
Essie leaves two siblings, David Lee and Andrew; three children, Betty Britt, Abram Gipson, and Shirley Curry; daughter in law Judy Robinson, and she was very proud of her grandchildren, great grandchildren, great great grandchildren, and great great great grandchildren that she leaves, as well as a host of relatives and friends.
Essie was loved by family, and friends and will be dearly missed!
