Barron; nieces and nephews. “When Bessie entered heaven on June 8th, she was reunited with her loving husband, Joseph W. Robinson. She was a strong lady with a big heart, who never met a stranger. “Granny” as she was called by her grandchildren, famous last words: ‘I am ready to go fishing.’ We truly believe she is doing that now.” She had always wanted to donate her body to science, to help be of use in the discovery of medical issues that could one day save lives. Due to her lacking just 41 days before turning “100”, donating her body was no longer available. So, there will be a memorial service held at the family cemetery in her honor at a later date. Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the Robinson family, and asks everyone to keep them lifted up in prayer over the coming days.
