Teresa A. Robinson
Teresa Robinson, 64, entered Heaven’s gates on August 6, 2022, with a celebration by her Savior and Heavenly family after a long battle with early onset Alzheimer’s Dementia.
Teresa was born on April 26, 1958, in Jackson, MS. She graduated from St. Joseph Catholic Highschool in 1976. Teresa was a very hard and dedicated worker spending many years helping build and run a family company from 1998 to 2003. She then transitioned to working with Craft Croswell where she was able to express her love of decorating and designing as a Project Assistant. Teresa was very outgoing and charismatic. She loved her two children, Hunter and Carly, but most notably her grandson, Wyatt. She was also a wonderful “Yaya” to all the neighborhood friends. Teresa lived life boldly, serving and showing love to others. She enjoyed opening her home to family and friends for many celebrations throughout the years. You could truly tell how much she radiated Christ’s love when she was around her family. She was an impeccable dancer and there was never a dull moment-even into the later stages of her disease. Although her Alzheimer’s robbed her of many joyous memories and experiences, Teresa always wore the most beautiful smile as if nothing was wrong. Many smiles were attributed to time spent at The Abigayle, adult day center, where she made tons of friends, took virtual trips around the world and socialized. The Abigayle muted the effects that the disease had on her ability to live and enjoy life. Her disease allowed her relationship with her two sisters, Chris and Janine to flourish, and they, along with her daughter, cared for her sacrificially. Throughout the duration of her disease, Teresa contributed to the research in finding a new medication for the treatment of Early Onset Alzheimer’s through Precise Medical and the Roche study. She was a very independent person and her dedication to her faith kept her disease from getting her down. Teresa was a warrior up until her last breath. She was a true testament to what it meant to be humble and to not take any time for granted.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the wonderful staff at the Abigayle, the nurses and aide from Baptist Hospice and her sitters, Ashley and Ruth Ann.
Survivors include her son, Hunter Black; daughter, Carly Anne Robinson; grandson, Wyatt Johnson; sister, Chris Nesbit (Larry); brother, Alan Arrington (Suzy); brother, Neil Arrington (Diane); sister, Janine Fant (Bob); brother, Paul Arrington (Becky); brother, Daniel Arrington; sister-in-law, Becky Arrington; many loving nieces, nephews, friends and neighbors. She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Charlotte Arrington, sister-in-law Beth Arrington and brother, David Arrington.
A private celebration of life will be held at a later date with family and friends. Memorials may be made in Teresa’s honor to:
The Abigayle Adult Day Center
205 Industrial Cove
Ridgeland, MS 39157
A Memorial Tree was planted for Teresa
