Ann Easter Robinson

Ann RobinsonAnn Easter Robinson, born in Ferrum, VA on 10/1/1928 to Ernest and Essie Easter, passed away 1/5/2019. She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Charlie Easter and wife Eleanor; and husbands, Edward Ross, Sr. and Howard Robinson. She leaves behind her most devoted companion and love - Ed O'Brien; sons, Lee Ross, spouse Patricia, David Ross, spouse Kari; grandchildren, Kelly (Joshua), Ashlin, Kirtland, Caroline and Alexander; and great grandchild, Virginia Cameron. Also, left to tell stories and laugh about Ann's antics are her nephew, E. Bruce Easter (Scott); and niece, Kim Albert and Kim's children John David and Laura. Ann worked for 39 years at the "Highway Department" in Rocky Mount, often going to work on the worst weather days, but always making sure that her boys were taken care of before heading out. She was a lifelong member of the Methodist Church, serving on committees and helping with programs. Ann will be remembered for her love of family and friends. She loved playing golf and Bridge and cooking a family dinner on Sunday nights. She moved to Smith Mountain Lake in 2005, and was always excited to have people over for boat rides or just sitting on the dock, talking until dark. Ann leaves a legacy of family, fun, fashion and good food. She was a fabulous hostess, always serving delicious foods with funny napkins, china plates and an anecdote of something that went wrong in the kitchen. The older grandchildren roll their eyes while remembering her elaborate Easter Egg Hunts and her colorful language when she burned the rolls or she couldn't remember what she had wrapped in their Christmas packages, but they would not change a single memory of her love for them. The younger grandchildren may not have such distinct memories of her, but associate the name "Grandma Ann"; with new Barbie dolls, Matchbox cars and most importantly, the feelings of love and strong family bonds. She will be missed, but her love of family lives on. Family request no flowers and that any donations be made in her memory to either the Alzheimer's Association or Rocky Mount United Methodist Church or to charity of your choice. Funeral services will be conducted from Rocky Mount United Methodist Church 11 a.m. Saturday, January 12, 2019 with Rev. Will Waller officiating. Interment will follow in Franklin Memorial Park. Her family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church. Arrangements by Flora Funeral Service and Cremation Center, Rocky Mount.
