  4. I knew this wonderful lady many years ago as we both worked for Home Savings and Loan, I in Lufkin and she in Crockett. She was a sweet and kind woman. God bless you family, I know you will miss her; she has definitely taken up residence in Paradise and she is well deserving of this reward.

  7. Steve, Janis, Regina and your families,
    I just became aware of “Miss” Robbie’s passing. She was a wonderful part of my life from the time I can first remember her in our little church in Kennard. Then, she blessed me as my Sunday School teacher as an adult.
    Both she and your dad were precious friends to our family throughout the years. They both were examples of what Christian love should look like in their tireless leadership in both church and community. I haven’t seen you all for many years, but you are in my bank of precious memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Rick and Dee Rudloff
