Violet Louise was born the fifth child to the late Mr. Robert Lee and Mrs. Melvina Robison on December 9th., 1958, in Phoenix, Arizona. She was a premature baby without any hope from the doctor who said she would not leave the hospital alive, but God. The Saints prayed for Violet, the late Mother Ola H. Garner laid hands on her, and God blessed her.
Violet attended grade school, she also attended New Horizon Desert Valley High School. Violet had many challenges, but she never stopped. She was her parents’ heart. Violet accepted the Lord as her personal Savior. Violet loved school and her friends. She won many awards. She participated in the Special Olympics and won many medals.
She won many awards, such as the Most Unique, Good Effort Award, and The Treasure Volunteer award.
Violet loved church and the saints. She loved to play her tambourine, and sing, and to say “Amen” to the Word of God. She loved Brother Jimmy Swaggart. Her television was on his channel every day.
Violet never let her handicap or her illness get her down. She would always give God praise without having to be asked. She was always saying “Halleluyah” and lifting her hands toward heaven. She loved to direct the choir.
She was brought up at No. 4 Church of God in Christ (C.O.G.I.C.) under the pastorage of the late Elder Wise Jones, and later Elder Degene Clark and the late Lonnie Green, and Elder Victor Rushing.
After the death of her mother, she attended the Greater Saint Luke Powerhouse C.O.G.I.C. She loved to go to church, sing in the choir with her sister, Rose. Violet loved to collect programs of the different services throughout the Jurisdiction. Bishop Felton King always made sure that Violet had a program.
After the death of her sister Rose, Violet moved to D’Iberville, MS with her special cousin, Mrs. Debra Bishop. She attended the Nance Temple COGIC where she was a faithful member.
Violet loved to sing, clap her hands, direct the choir, and testify. She generously gave hugs to friends and strangers alike and was always inviting the saints to her house at “two o’clock”. Violet loved to dress with her fascinators, jewelry, purses, and handkerchiefs.
Violet was preceded in death by her parents, Robert Lee and Melvina Robison, brothers Garry Robison, Robert Lee Robison, Jr. and Robert Earl Robison, her sister Rose Mae Robison, her aunt Earline Bennet, and her niece, Sheri Lynn Cooper.
Violet leaves to cherish her memories a special cousin, Mrs. Debra (Wifford, Jr) Bishop, a sister-in-law, Ms. Junell Robison-Williams; two special friends, Mrs. Peggy (Tony) Winrow and Barbara Cunningham. She leaves three uncles, Jimmie (Louise Robison, Wesley Robison, and Lloyd Robison; an aunt, Mrs. Jetti Lee Williams; two nieces, Tausha Robison and Jocelyn (Tamar) McClain; three nephews, Robert (Casady) Robison, Gregory (Rosio) Robison and Joshua Robison and a host of great-nieces, great-nephews, other relatives and friends. She would be greatly missed by her family.
She was a bright spirit and light of her parents’ lives.
Violet’s uncle Jimmy said she missed the first train that carried her parents and siblings to their resting place. But she met up with Martha, Debra and Wilford and she was able to catch the second train in MS.
The family wishes to acknowledge:
Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent flowers, if so I saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as any friend could say. Perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day. Whatever you did to console our hearts, we thank you so much, whatever the part.
The family wants to express their special thanks to Peggy Winrow, Barbara Cunninghan, Hettie Roberts, Mo. Mildred Wilson, to the late Missy. Edna Norris, and the wonderful the people from Merit Health, Pillars of Biloxi.
