Born in Shreveport, Louisiana

NOVEMBER 19, 1933

Our Family unfortunately lost our matriarch, Flora Mae Robinson, on April 6th , 2023. She was just 89 years old.


Flora Mae Robinson was the 4th child born to Samuel Robinson and Laura B. Taylor in Shreveport, LA. Flora accepted Christ at a young age and began her walk with Christ at St. Rest Baptist
Church, Shreveport, LA under the leadership of Rev. Simmons.


Flora Robinson attended school at Booker T. Washington in Shreveport where she played basketball and sang in the school choir. She furthered her education in Nursing after relocating to Los Angeles, CA
around 1955 to be closer to her mother. Little did she know this was the beginning of a large, sprawling
family – something that gave her much joy in life.

In 1959, Flora Robinson joined membership with Messiah Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership
of the late Pastor Whalen S. Jones. As a member of Messiah she served in the Mission choir as well as
the kitchen committee. She really loved serving the people of God and was faithful until she could no longer serve due to illness.

Flora Robinson enjoyed cooking for her family and friends. She was well known for her soul food and
BBQ dishes from turkey wings, black-eyed peas, greens, cornbread, and even a classic cheeseburger. Additionally, she would love a classic Louisiana Fish Fry Friday.


Later in life, Flora Robinson was determined not to be left behind by technology advancements of the world and learned how to use the computer where she loved to play games from Solitaire, Dominoes, to
her favorite Backgammon.


Flora Robinson enjoyed watching her favorite court shows, game shows, as
well as any and every kind of black entertainment. A beautiful, loving, and comforting woman until the
very end, she will be greatly missed.


Her selflessness and dedication have been the foundation upon
which our family has been built, and her generosity of spirit has been the glue that has held us together through thick and thin.
Flora has shown us that a family's strength lies not just in blood ties, but in the bonds of love, trust, and
shared experiences that transcend generations.


Through her unwavering commitment to family, Flora has
taught us the true meaning of kinship, and in the process, has touched countless lives.


In summary, Flora
Robinson epitomizes the essence of a loving, supportive, and devoted family member. We are eternally grateful for her selfless contributions and the profound impact.


As we honor and celebrate Flora
Robinson, let us be inspired by her example and strive to carry on her legacy of love, support, and togetherness in our own lives.


Flora Robinson was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Elaine Boykin, brothers Earvin Robinson, Hank Robinson, and Alvin Robinson.

Special Thanks to Pastor Perry J Jones and the Messiah Missionary Baptist Church family and friends for

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance…
