Larein Mildred Robinson Obituary

On February 5th, 2024, Almighty God in his infinite wisdom gently closed the eyes of our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend, Larein Robinson, as she entered into her eternal rest. She was an extraordinary light that filled every room and will forever be missed by those who knew her.

The only child of the late Edward and Mildred Walker, Larein Mildred was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 13th, 1925. She was educated in the Philadelphia school system and attended South Philadelphia High School for Girls. She especially enjoyed taking business classes as well as ballet, music and modeling.

Larein loved the time spent in church. She was Christened and Baptized at St. Simon Episcopal Church, 22nd and Reed Streets, under Reverend Joan Rogers. She joined Zion Baptist Church in 1978, where she remained active until her health began to fail. Her love for Zion became a significant part of her life. She became a member of the Cathedral Choir and her beloved Choraliers where she was president for many years. She also led a ministry for ten years that gave scholarships to worthy college bound students and served as a member of the Happy Hearts, a Living Memorial Group.

Larein married her childhood sweetheart, the late Robert J. Robinson in 1945. From this blissful union, they were blessed with four sons, Robert, Jr., Bernard and twins, Derrick and Darryl. The family lived for over two decades on 21st Street in the West Oak Lane section in Philadelphia. The friendships, good times and warm memories lasted throughout her lifetime.

Larein worked at the Internal Revenue Service for 30 years as an Accounting Technician. During that time, she also volunteered at Northwest Center police department, keeping files for offenders past and present. As part of her social commitment, she volunteered at the local voting polls for over a decade, well into her 90’s. Mom loved a good time and much of that joy came from her time in the social group, the VIP’s.

A remarkable woman, her beauty and class defied age. Until the year of her passing, Larein continued to do charitable acts, win at the casino and gather her family for singing and dancing.

Larein was a true matriarch of her family. She leaves to rejoice in her loving memory, four sons, Rob, Bernard, Derrick and Darryl; eight grandchildren Robert J. Robinson, Jr., Melisa R. Johnson, Nikki R. Karnes, Krista Seiden Bernard E. Robinson, Jr, Kelsey Robinson, Anisah Robinson and Maya Crandall; seven great grandchildren, Brandon and Lauren Johnson, Kendall and Jackson Karnes, Sonya and Jasmine Robinson, Eliana and Amina Seiden, and Nehemiah and Natalia Coston and Nami Hodges; Daughter-in-laws, Lois Robinson and Barbara Robinson; and Goddaughter Kim High, Mark Hodge and a host of friends.
