Read more about the life story of Brenda and share your memory.    


Brenda Eva Robinson was born to the late Johnnie and India Robinson on December 19, 1954, in Emporia Virginia. Brenda was educated in Emporia and later furthered her education in Massapequa and Long 
Island, New York. She ultimately became employed working in an operating room and as a Certified nurse assistant for several years in Baltimore, Maryland. 

Brenda affectionately known as "Bren", was a virtuous woman with her own style and grace. She was a lifelong resident of Trenton, NJ. Always fashionably late for every event, Brenda would be dressed to impress. 

Upon every encounter she always asked that if you had any old clothes you didn't want to "hand them over", because the next time you saw it she would have turned it into a totally different look to fit her. Her nieces can recall the times she washed their hair with eggs and conditioned it with mayonnaise. They never forgot the best rod sets came from newspaper, aluminum foil and paper towels. Above all, Brenda lived a life full of excitement and joy. Never having children of her own, her nieces and nephews meant the world to her. She was always there when any and everyone needed to talk or just relax. Her doors as well as her heart was always open. The kindness and sweet contentment in her voice will always have a place in the hearts of her 
loved ones. Only an aunt can give hugs like a mother, keep secrets like a sister and share love like a friend. To have known her was to love her and she will be greatly missed. 

Brenda was predeceased by her parents, Johnnie and India Robinson; her brother, Samuel Robinson; and her sister, Rosebud Wilson. 

She now leaves behind to cherish her memories: her stepmother, Mary Edith Robinson; three sisters, Peggy Gaines Fleming (Demalcomb), Gerlean Lucas (Robert), and Nora Williams; six brothers, Johnnie Robinson (Nathel), Wayne Robinson, Ronnie Scott (Renda), Shelton Robinson, Michael Scott , and Jerry Robinson (Elizabeth); a brother-in-law, Felix Wilson; a host of nieces and nephews who she loved very much, cousins and friends including a special friend, David Vaughn; and a bonus daughter, Annisa Divine.
