Robinson

Zannie Robinson, 80, died June 27, 2012 in the Monroe Manor Nursing Home.

He was born Dec.

30, 1931 in

Clarke County to Miles Robinson Sr. and Louisanna Johnson Robinson.

He was a unique person filled with love for others. His heart was bigger than many could ever know. For those who were blessed to know and love him, lives have been changed in losing him. He loved working in the yard and had a generous spirit. He accepted Christ as his personal Savior and united with Little Rock Baptist Church. He unselfishly served in whatever capacity, whether asked or not, he could. He would often carry baskets of fruit to area ministers as a token of his love for others. He battled and ultimately succumbed to his illness.

He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, Jeffery (Ollie Lee) Robinson, Henry (Anna Ruth) Robinson and three sisters, Lizzie (Lawrence Sr.,), Davis, Pauline (Charlie) Smith and Plezanna (Aberham) Davis.

The service was June 30 at 3 p.m. at Little Rock Baptist Church with Rev. Tommie Chapman, pastor, officiating. Burial was in the Little Rock Baptist Church Cemetery. Banks Memorial Funeral Home of Monroeville directed.
