Robbie attended Lanier High School in Montgomery, AL., became an assistant for a local doctor and graduated from Cosmetology School. She was the states’ cosmetology president, had numerous famous political and entertainment clients and opened her own business, Tresses and Treasures, which combined two of her passions, hairstyling and antiques. Robbie loved people and animals, adopting numerous of both throughout her life. She never met a stranger, loved entertaining youth and adults, and was an avid thrill seeker from driving a race car to riding an elephant. Her insatiable zest for life was contagious. Robbie loved her Lord, serving Him faithfully with her church family. She was an artist and phenomenal singer, using both talents for God.
