Our Hearts and Never Forgotten
A beautiful and kindred Spirit who entered the world on December 7, 1939. Doris La Dell Robinson was a girl and sister who picked cotton. Because she picked cotton, she was determined to further her education. She was a wife and mother who became a scholar in her own right.
Doris was an independent, strong-willed, intelligent, proud, and private woman. These are some of the most difficult people to write an obituary for because they show what they want others to see when they want them to see it. Her biggest accomplishment was raising four very different children, all with their own strengths and accomplishments. She was something different to each and every one of them, all important in their own way.
Doris La Dell Robinson completed her journey on this planet on September 30, 2022. She leaves behind three brothers: Lee Watkins Long Junior, Dr. Pal Long, and John Wayne Long; one sister: Ruther Long-Pearson; two sons: Godfrey Thompson (four children), and Mitchell Lee Thomson (three children); two daughters: Mary Charles Robinson-Austin (ten children), and Claren Wayne Robinson (one child); and many great-grandchildren and family members
