Ella "Grandmom" Renfrow Robinson
Birth: Oct. 29, 1901
Death: Apr. 20, 1978

This memorial was created to honor the legacy and preserve the memory of
My Maternal Grandmother †

Her Favorite Bible passage was John 14: 1-3 verses."Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions. If it not so, I would have told. I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

76 years, 5 months, 23 days

As a young boy I remembered she loved humming old spirituals while moving her feet and praising the Lord; she really enjoyed that as well reading her Bible. Grandmom always made and prepared large meals that included her wonderful buttermilk biscuits that was served with molasses; honey or her delicious peach preserves that she canned each season. She had a new song in heart everyday before she went to heaven. Even though her health began to fail she had a song deep down in her spirit that remained until the Lord called her home. Her deep love for the Lord is the lasting legacy she leaves the family. To this union eight children were born; Ratha, Pvt John William, Luna Mae infant daughter died at infancy, Ethel, Rev. Josephine, Bruce "SU" and the twins; Ella R. Cofer and Stella. (bio by:PauL Cofer)

Mrs. Ella Robinson, daughter of the late J.T. Renfrow and the late Margret H. Renfrow of Wilson County, North Carolina, departed this life April 20, 1978 in Burlington, New Jersey. She accepted Jesus at an early age and baptized at that time at the New Vester Missionary Church of Wilson County. She attended throughout her young life. She was also a member of the First Baptist Church in Wilson for many years until health began to fail. She attended the public schools in Wilson County. She was the wife of the late Lumas A. Robinson of Wilson County. She leave to mourn her passing, five daughters: Ratha of Wilson, North Carolina, Mrs. Ethel Taylor Ingram of Burlington, New Jersey with whom she lived. Josephine of Middlesex, North Carolina; Stella of Cherry Hill, New Jersey; and Ella of Burlington, New Jersey; one son, Yesu "Bruce" of Wilson, North Carolina; one sister, Mrs. Ora Parker of Delaware; eighteen grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren and hosts of relatives and friends.

"God has a little garden of his own and chooses flowers that are fully grown. When he took a walk and chose this one, He said don't worry it's my will be done. I have the one who is ready to see, to come home and rejoice with me."
