Mother of Michelle Obama. She was the daughter of Purnell and Rebecca Shields (nee Jumper), a carpenter and a nurse. She was born fourth of their seven children. She married Fraser Robinson on October 27, 1960 in Chicago, where she worked as a banking secretary while raising their children on the city's South Side. She taught her children to advocate for themselves and to value education. This contributed to her daughter's success as a lawyer, and eventually as First Lady of the United States. She supported her son-in-law, Barack Obama, in his political career by helping with childcare for her granddaughters while Barack and Michelle campaigned. During his presidency, she lived in the White House as a member of the First Family.
