Lorna Lee Robinson
Lorna Lee Robinson, 76, of Eufaula, Oklahoma fell asleep in death on September 7, 2019.
Lorna was born in Los Angeles, California on August 25, 1943 to Ashby Edward Richmond and Ysaura Lucile Quiroz. She was the youngest of eight children.
One of Lorna’s greatest joys was spending time with her family. She was mother to Lori Anne, Larry Wayne Jr., and Lloyd Ashby, and grandmother to 11 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. Her father held a special place in her heart and was constantly on her mind as long as she could remember. Her prayer to God was that she would have a happy, united family. Her prayer came true on June 6, 1990 when she was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She faithfully served with her three children and numerous grandchildren until her death. For more than 2 1/2 decades she zealously volunteered to teach the truth about God‘s kingdom and her loving Creator, Jehovah, Whom she worshiped. She wanted to tell anyone who would listen to the truth about the true God. This included years of working with individuals in the Hmong language field.
Many young ones in the area remember Lorna very fondly for patiently teaching them to play piano. It was said “Her home was always a place for young ones to go to learn and feel safe.”
Even later on in her life Lorna still had a twinkle in her beautiful eyes and a ready smile. She will be remembered for her many stories, sense of humor, and big heartedness.
Memorial services will be handled on September 14, 2019 at 1pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses - 419700 US-266, Checotah, Oklahoma.
