Obituary of Monnie Robbins
Duffield - Monnie Berry Robbins, 99, was born May 4, 1924 in Fairview community of Scott County where she spent most of her life; other than a brief residence in Kingsport where she worked at the Tennessee Eastman. She was a faithful member of Robinette Memorial Church (until it was decommissioned) where she served as secretary and treasurer for a number of years. For the last few years, she attended Zion Baptist Church until she was no longer able. She deeply loved her church family. Her life was dedicated to providing a wonderful and welcoming home for her family and anybody that stopped to visit. She proudly opened her home to care for several family members at the end of their lives. She loved working in her garden, canning, quilting and cooking for her family and friends. If you left her house hungry it was your fault. She knew how blessed she was with her family and the closeness they shared. She was loved and admired by all those who knew her.
