Celebration Of Life

Nancy Ida Mcspadden Robinson was born on November 29, 1927, to lolar and Samuel McSpadden in Caroladet, Missouri. Her father died when she was not quite two years old. Her

Mother did remarry. From that subsequent union, she gained four brothers and two sisters

William , Clifton ,Leroy , Bobby , Wilmar, and Bernetta, She was affectionately known to her siblings

and their families as Bunny. Nancy grew up in the St. Louis area where she attended local schools

As a teenager she took training in cosmetology.

Aner her mother had become a Seventh-day Adventist, Naney decided to attend Oakwood College,

where her plan was to major in pre-nursing. Nancy did not continue at Oakwood; however, she did meet

Beniamin Robinson, Jr. there, who later became her husband. After marriage, they chose to relocate to

Chicago, Illinois, where all five of their children were born: Gregory, Cassandra, Benjamin Ill, Patricia

and Joan.

Nancy was a long-time member of the Shiloh SDA Church in Chicago, Illinois, where she served in

many capacities including Sabbath School teacher, Youth leader, and usher.

Nancy pursued additional education, taking classes in the evening after work, so that she could advance

her career in social work. She worked for the Illinois Department of Social Services as a case manager

for about 23 years.

Over the years, Nancy enjoyed crocheting and sewing. She enjoyed time with her children at the parks

and museums in Chicago. Her grandchildren were also a source of great joy for her. She was known to

travel to their homes at the drop of a hat to render assistance or attend their important activities. She was

particularly involved with two of her daughters and their families while they endured serious illnesses.

After retirement, Nancy and Benjamin moved to Huntsville, AL. They joined the First Church of

Seventh-day Adventists and once again, she got involved. She served in many capacities and particularly

enjoyed her time as a deaconess. In her new Huntsville home, Nancy also worked for the Garden Cove

Health Food Store and Willow Run Towers.

Nancy was blessed to travel with her family to most of the fifty States and many locations internationally.

At 86 years old, she was the oldest person in her tour group to walk the streets of Old Jerusalem. She

particularly enjoyed her breakfast buffet on the Nile River while visiting Egypt.
