Bernice Robinson, age 83, passed away peacefully December 5, 2020. She was born August 20, 1937 in Pensacola, Florida to the late Jerry and Wilma Ruth Foreman. She attended Fashion Institute and received a degree as a dressmaker. She married her former husband Hughe G Williams in September of 1959. Out of that union Lyndale Coley and Hugh E Williams were born. From there she made a change to the career of banking as a teller. Over the course of her over 25-year career, she worked her way up and became branch manager of Barclay’s Bank. While residing in New York she was a member of Apostolic Temple of Jesus Christ. After her retirement she moved to Durham, NC with her second husband the late William H Robinson. While residing in North Carolina she was a member of Bethlehem Temple Apostolic Faith Church. After 21 years she moved to N. Chesterfield, VA where she resided until the time of her death.

She is also survived by her brother Kenneth Foreman; and numerous nieces and nephews. Bernice loved to love on people; she was a mother to many. She was a phenomenal dressmaker who designed many of her daughters’ clothing as a young child. She worked for the Board of Elections for many years as a poll worker. She was very active in her church and had a special love for the youth. She became active in her community by joining the Lyon Park Community Center in Durham, NC. She touched the hearts of whomever she came in contact with. She was the backbone to her family who held her in high esteem because of her wisdom, strength, and love.
