Etta M. Robinson

November 18, 1933 - July 23, 2021

She passes on a rich legacy of love, and of passion for the Lord.

ALMOND – Etta M. Robinson went home to be with the Lord on Friday (July 23, 2021).

Mrs. Robinson was born in Laurel, Md. on November 18, 1933 to Russell and Herman (Monzeller) Wooden.

At the age of 13, Etta accepted Jesus Christ as her savior, and from that moment on serving Him consumed her life until she passed away at 87 years of age. She loved children, and as a gifted teacher and evangelist began leading Child Evangelism crusades before she even graduated from high school. In 1953 a young soldier named James Robinson, just back from the Korean War front, began attending her church in Laurel, Md. On June 5, 1954 they married and later moved to his hometown of Hornell. There she faithfully served at the Assembly of God Church on Seneca Road for many years, teaching children and holding Vacation Bible Schools.

In the 1960’s she and her husband bought a home on Chapel Street in Almond where Etta invited the neighborhood children to her “Good News Club,” touching their tender hearts and lives for Jesus. Later they began “Chapel Fellowship,” where many Alfred University students gathered at least once a week for Bible study and home-cooked meals. For fourteen years (and beyond), her home was open day and night to any of those “precious young people,” as she became Mom, mentor, encourager, counselor and intercessor to each one who hungered for God, especially during the Jesus Movement.

Etta continued ministering to others in word and deed until the day she left this world. Her children and grandchildren, friends, and even hospital staff were lavished with her sweetness and kindness. Her sunny ways and mischievous laughter brightened up their world. She passes on a rich legacy of love, and of passion for the Lord.

Etta is survived by three sons, James (Sandra) Robinson of Almond, Mark (Rena) Robinson and Roland (Jennifer) Robinson, both of Hartsville; five grandchildren, Andrew Robinson, Zachary Robinson and Daniel (Elizabeth) Robinson, all of Manassas, Va. and Brendan Robinson of Almond and Rebekah (Zachary) Krebs of Ontario; one great granddaughter, Vanessa Hope Robinson; and many innumerable friends. Mom, you are our “Sunshine.”

She was predeceased by her husband of 58 years, James G. Robinson on May 6, 2012 and one beloved son, Richard A. Robinson on April 15, 2015.

There will be no prior visitation. A private burial will take place in Woodlawn Cemetery in Almond at the convenience of the family. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Almond Community Center on Saturday (July 31) at 11:00 a.m. Everyone is welcome.

Arrangements are under the direction of Baker-Swan Funeral Home in Wellsville/Scio. Online condolences may be offered at © 2021 Baker-Swan Funeral Home.

  4. Your message – I am so happy for you Etta, to be with the love of your life, The Lord Jesus Christ. Your memorial today was a rich tapestry of HIS love that you spread everywhere you went or were, and now you also are with all the loved ones who went on ahead of you and knew The Lord. I cannot express the depth to how much I will miss not praying, talking or seeing you, but eventually I will again. Prayers for your family and so many friends, who are all grieving for losing you (selfish I know), but we rejoice for you also, and treasure all the fabulous memories and teachings you left us. Until we meet again, all my LOVE and BLESSINGS!
