My Mom – Beverly Jean Robinson with her great Aunt Cleo May Robinson
Cira 1949 in Phoenix, Arizona
Auntie, as I know her name to be, was my mom’s angel. At age 16, Auntie sent Beverly (my mom) a train ticket – California to Missouri – to come live with her in Missouri and Arizona. Beverly was given things she never before was able to have. A wardrobe, car, braces for her teeth, boyfriends, college education and so many other splendid opportunities of life. Auntie did marry for a very short time and after a divorce resumed her maiden name. She owned a hotel, was a traveling button sells woman across America and traveled to many destinations all over the world. I am thankful for her. I believe not only did she change my moms life, but changed the lives of all future generations that follow in our line. She was an amazing woman and I hope to learn more and share often.
