Patricia Ann Robinson

December 9, 1960 — February 3, 2021

Patricia Ann Robinson was born on December 9, 1960, the fourth child of Johnnie Tatum Paris and George Edward Paris in Palestine, Texas. At a very early age, Patricia accepted Christ in her life, was baptized and attended Pilgrim Hill Baptist Church in Palestine.

Patricia’s secondary education was obtained through the Palestine Independent School District. While matriculating, she was actively involved in the Student Council, a dancer on Palestine High School’s Drill squad, admitted into the National Honor Society and numerous student and community organizations. After graduating from Palestine High School, Patricia attended and graduated with honors from Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from the Jesse H. Jones School of Business. While attending the university, she was actively engaged in student leadership programs that promoted academic achievement and student success. With education being a fundamental tenant, she continued to achieve academically and received her Master of Business Administration from Webster University.

Her professional career began with the Department of Defense (DOD) at Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas and spanned a period of thirty-five (35) years with the last twenty (20) years at Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, Georgia. Patricia was a Program Manager, who managed flight line maintenance stands for the Support Equipment and Vehicles Division. In this capacity, she managed multi-million dollar acquisitions for equipment and aircraft weapon systems for the entire United States Air Force. She was dedicated to the men and women who served our country and always demanded of herself and others the highest level of work ethic and excellence in performance. She knew that ensuring the safety and success of our soldiers’ missions were foremost and their families relied on the accuracy of her work. Patricia was extremely passionate about her work and never was one to engage in self-aggrandizement. While employed, she received numerous awards which recognized her leadership and excellence in service. She retired from the Department of Defense in December of 2019.

She loved jazz and often attended jazz festivals across the country with friends and family. Watching old classic movies and westerns were a weekend pleasure. Her love for the outdoors was ignited on her maternal grandparents’ farm in Arkansas and throughout her life she was an avid hiker. Patricia enjoyed traveling with family and friends. She traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad; some of the exciting places she visited with her family were Canada, Japan, London and Paris. Cruises were also a favorite and a couple of her most memorable were the Caribbean and Alaskan cruises.

Patricia’s best times were spent with her four grandchildren, Demonte Butler, Deja Renee’ and Dallas James Robinson and Hannah VeElla Hodge. She enjoyed planning and executing “road trips” with them on a regular basis. Preparations for these trips were given the same attention to detail as with her responsibilities at DOD. Her grandchildren loved these trips and the memories will be with them forever. They spent summer vacations with her and of course, by her design, these times included fun and educational exposure. Despite the fact that they lived across the country from her, and for several years on another continent, she was actively engaged in their lives. Her sisters affectionately called her the “Super Grandmother.”

Community and country were important to Patricia. She was a cheerleader coach for her daughter, Alexandria’s cheer squad and an active Booster Club member when her son, Phillip, played high school football in San Antonio, Texas. She volunteered for the Special Olympics organizations in Texas and Georgia. After spending time with family on Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, she headed to the local food pantry or homeless shelter to serve others. She strongly believed in voting rights and demonstrated that belief throughout her life. She never failed to cast her ballot whether in person or absentee; she exercised this right and was happy to have a political discussion. However, if you engaged her, you were cautioned to be prepared to discuss facts and support your position with evidence.

She is survived by her two loving children, SMSgt. Phillip Braxton Robinson (Renee’ Lynn) and Alexandria Robinson Hodge, MBA; beloved grandchildren, Demonte Butler, Deja Renee’ Robinson, Dallas James Robinson and Hannah VeElla Hodge; four devoted sisters, Georgia Paris Ealy, Esq., Johnnie Paris Frazier, M.D. (Winfred), Grady Marie Paris, Esq. and Thejuana Jeanette Diomande (Ladji); adoring nieces and nephews, Denise T. Frazier, PhD, Winfred T. Frazier, M.D., (Jesse) Grady Paris Johnson, MA (Jerome), Ibrahim Diomande, Kasi Lee Nayles, MA, and Masona Diomande; doting great nieces and nephews, Jeremiah Dwain Johnson, Tatum Marie Johnson, Asa J. Frazier, A. Odessa Frazier, and Deliam Gianni Frazier along with a host of relatives and dear friends.

Patricia will forever remain in our hearts and etched in our memories.
