Ann B. Robinson, age 73, departed this life Saturday, June 13, 2015.
She was the daughter of the late Claude T. and Jeannette Bailey Brittingham of New Church, Va.
Ann was a 1961 graduate of Atlantic High School and a 1962 graduate of the Nassawadox School of Nursing.
She spent her entire career as a licensed practical nurse at Peninsula Regional Medical Center, in Salisbury, Md., and she retired with 40 years of faithful service. Ann had a great love of nature and used her considerable nursing skills on various “critters” that had been found hurt or abandoned throughout her life, from baby birds to buzzards, from kittens to skunks.
She had an artistic flair and was a gifted photographer, painter and crafter often sharing her various works with friends and family. She was an avid gardener; she loved working in her flowerbeds in the sunshine. Ann was a member of the First Baptist Church of New Church, Va.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Albert, in 2005 and much loved nephew, “Buddy” Robinson, recently.
She leaves to cherish her memory, her cousins, Sue Bundick, David Brittingham, Martha Budd and Sally Moreland. She also leaves behind her special nephew, John (Starr) Robinson, of Girdletree, special nieces, Jane Banks and her husband, Craig, of Pocomoke City and Linda Lightle and her husband, Jeff, of Sebastian, Fla., her “adopted” son, Gerry Tribeck and his wife, Barbara, of Snow Hill, extended family, many special friends and neighbors and her faithful companion “Prince.”
A graveside service will be held at Springhill Cemetery in Girdletree, Md. on Saturday, June 20, 2015 at 2 p.m. A reception for family and friends will immediately follow at the Girdletree Fire Dept. 2739 Snow Hill Rd, Girdletree, Md. 21829.
