Melba Jean Rodriguez Gros Robin, 71, of Morgan City, passed away on January 27, 2021 at Ochsner Hospital in New Orleans, surrounded by loved ones.

Melba Jean was born in Morgan City, to Duroc Gros and Virgie Landry on June 13, 1949. She was well known as a caring nurse and a nursing instructor. Melba’s smile lit up a room and anyone that knew her-experienced the happiness she shared with others through her smile and personality. She loved people, talking, crafting, and especially her church. She was a proud member of Bethel Pentecostal Church in Patterson, LA.

She is survived by her husband of 25 years, Joseph Robin; four sons, Scott Rodriguez of Morgan City, Kevin Rodriguez and wife Stephanie of Pierre Part, Conn Robin and wife Sara of Petal, MS and Matt Robin of Waynesboro, MS; two brothers, Kenny Benoit of Morgan City, Keith Mire and wife Angela of Berwick. Melba is also survived by her 11 grandchildren, Kevin Rodriguez, Jr, Kyler Rodriguez, Halie Rodriguez, Brady Rodriguez, Kayla Robin, Conner Robin, Charlie Robin, Lex Robin, Nikki Espinal, Ashley Landry, and Brianna Grow and nine great-grandchildren Zoie Brown, Derrick Autin, Dylan Autin, Stefanie Rodriguez, Livya Rodriguez, Sadie Tigart, Aubrey Terrell, Daniela Espinal, Donnie Espinal.

Proceeded in death by brother Aubrey Gros (as well as Virgie Landry and Duroc Gros)

To know Melba is to love her. She never met a person she disliked, and she never made a friend she did not keep. She kept two “daughters” close to her heart, Angela LeBlanc and Rachel Carline. She was always driven around by her closest friend, Linda Rudolph, and neighbors that turned into family, Vic and Karen Chopin. Melba's life-long best friend, the one she could always count on, and Aunt to her children, Debra Fabre, and late husband Roger Fabre.There are so many relationships that were special to her and as many unique stories to go along with each friendship. Wherever Melba went, she made new friends. Her stories will never end. She was our angel on earth and is now an angel in her father’s kingdom.

Visitation will be at Hargrave Funeral Home in Morgan City on Saturday, January 30, 2021 at 10 AM, until time of service at 1 PM. Burial will follow at Morgan City Cemetery.
