Robin Lenora Gant

July 9, 1957 ~ May 18, 2019 (age 61)

Robin Gant was born to Mrs. Emma Ora Bradsher Gant and Mr. Willie Edward Gant, Sr. on   July 9, 1957.  She was a happy child who loved to play with her older brother, the late Willie Edward Gant, Jr. (Brenda) and her younger sister, Loretta Brown (Clifton). As she became an adult and as her family grew, she continued to love and care for her family.  She often spoke of her loved ones.  She talked about her nieces, Jessica Brown DelCampo (Rick) and Emory Hawkins (Brian) and her nephews, Edward Gant (Alicia) and Rodney Brown. She was quick to show pictures of their school awards and other awards.  As the family continued to grow, she had more pictures to show and stories to tell. We heard stories about her great nieces, Kamia, Rhea, Brianna and Sariyah and her great nephew Rick III.  We heard many fond stories about her Uncle Charlie Bradsher.

She loved to attend church and was a faithful member of Sweet Gum Grove Missionary Baptist Church. She not only was a faithful member but also an active member as long as she could attend.  She sang in several choirs including The Gospelaires.  She ushered. She attended Bible Study and Sunday School.  She was a missionary and often visited the sick and shut-in.  She participated and travelled with the Women’s Ministry.   Even after her illness began and she was in a wheelchair, she continued to try to get to Sweet Gum.  

She also enjoyed learning.  She graduated from Eastern Alamance High School.   The American Bird called Robin is known as a song bird, for being one of the smartest birds and for always flocking with its family. Our Robin had similar traits.  She was smart, she loved to sing and she loved to be with her birth and church families.

There is more to know about Robin. She had a comical side. She loved a TV show called “the Simpson” and could often quote them.  She was adventurous.  She loved to travel, especially to new places and on shopping sprees.  She loved to dine and often went to the Barn Theater and other local eateries.  She had a dry humor but you could depend upon her to bring a smile to your face.  Most of all, she would speak the truth whether you liked it or not.  She frequently spoke about Jesus.  With years of trials, tribulations, pain and suffering, she would meet you with a strong faith in God and with a warm embrace through her words and deeds.  

Back in the day, Billy Preston sang a song call “Will it go round in circles?” The song goes like this …

I got a song that ain’t no melody.  I’m a gonna sing it to my friends.

I got a song that ain’t no melody.  I’m a gonna sing it to my friends.

I got a story that aint no moral.  Let the bad guy win once in a while.

I got a story that aint no moral.  Let the bad guy win once in a while.

I got a dance that aint no steps.  I’m gonna let the music move me around.

I got a dance that aint no steps.  I’m goinna let the music move me around.

Will it go round in circle?  Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky?

Will it go round in circle?  Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky?

Our Dear Robin has finished circling around in this world.  She is flying high up in the sky.  We believe that when we meet her, she will sing her song, she will tell her story, she will move to her dance.  After she flies high in the sky, she will see her Savior bye and bye.
