OBITUARY

Catherine "Kittie" Truesdale Robertson

February 23, 1943August 30, 2020

Kittie Robertson will be remembered as a generous and giving spirit who found true joy in helping others. She was a loving mother and one of a kind grandmother who unexpectedly left us on August 30, 2020 and will be buried beside her husband at Westminster Gardens Cemetery on September 3, 2020 at 10 AM. Catherine Amelia Truesdale was born in Greenville, SC to the late John Maurice and Catherine Mann Truesdale. It was in Greenville that she met her husband of 58 years, Victor Neil Robertson, who preceded her in death in 2018. After retiring as a bank branch manager, she and Vic traveled the NC coast enjoying beaches and golf courses and also kept a home in Surfside, SC where they spent every summer creating precious memories with their granddaughter. Kittie was a phenomenal cook whose culinary talents were especially on display at the holiday table and was an avid and skilled gardener eager to pass down her canning abilities to two generations. She is survived by her children, Tracy Robertson of Greensboro and Mike and wife Karen Robertson of Kernersville. Two grandchildren who she absolutely adored, Catherine Cutrer Yates and husband Matt of Lawrenceville, GA and Nattie Morton of Kernersville. Four siblings also survive Kittie. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society or AuthoraCare Collective (formerly Hospice), 2500 Summit Av., Greensboro, NC 27405.

ADD A MEMORY

Funny thing about memories...nothing and no one can steal them away... not time, an ocean wave, or even death. Kit was the oldest of five children, I am the youngest. The age difference separated our worlds for many years until we were older. That's when we were blessed to be "sisters", sharing secrets and good times. My fondest memories are of us playing golf while our Mama watched from her kitchen window. Mostly, we just laughed. In spite of her many health issues, she was determined to play, and play she did. She hit the ball many yards straight down the fairway while I searched in the woods for mine. I often told her that she was my inspiration. If she could do it with those painful hands, then surely I could do it. Nope, she beat me every time. And, oh the laughs playing putt putt with Catherine and Tracy!! If I could say one thing to my sister, it would be "Thank you". Thank you for the memories and the good times. And thank you for coming when I called. I love you.

How the hell do you say goodbye to your sister? It’s just not possible. We weren’t done talking; solving all the problems of the world, planning trips to the beach, just being there for each other. Her for me and me for her. It will take the rest of my lifetime to accept my daily life without her. My peace comes in knowing, for Kit, there is no more pain and no more sorrow.
May she Rest In Peace.
“The heart, like the mind, hath its own memory, and in it are inshrined the precious keepsakes.” Wordsworth
See you on the other side of the 🌈
Your sister, Margaret

Tracy
We will miss Kittie very much. Always had a smile for me and Gracie when we passed her on the road. I’m very glad that Kittie and my mother was able to be friends. Leslie and I send our sincere condolences

I will miss our driveway and over the fence talks. Kitty was always genuinely interested in my family and grandkids and a very sweet and loving person. Juliette always points to go to Kitty’s beautiful backyard and to go to see Ollie when they were out walking. She was always smiling and laughing. Kitty talked about her kids, daughter-in-law, grandchild, and Nattie with much love and smiles. I will miss her immensely. The neighborhood won’t be the same without her. Thanks for being a great 20 year next door neighbor. RIP. Condolences to the family.
