Obituary

Essie White 87, returned to her heavenly home on October 29, 2020, after a valiant battle with a long illness. Her devotion to her family and her belief in God supported her in her struggle and ultimately gave her peace.
Essie Lean White was born to the union of Coleman Robinson and Alberta Cunningham Robertson of Jones, Louisiana on October 2, 1933. Essie raised her three children with patience, discipline and humility. From the very beginning, she dedicated her children to God and encouraged them to explore the beauty of the Gospels. She was a faithful Member at Mt. Zion Baptist Church until her health declined. She enjoyed listening to the choir and good preaching.

Essie worked at University Hospital from 1976 until 1996, in the Food Service as a prep person. She loved to garden and grow her own vegetables, as well as flower gardens. She also loved to harvest, and put them in the freezer for the winter months. She made the best spaghetti sauce and what we call soup starter, all you had to do was pull a bag from the freezer, and add meat if you wanted to. She also liked fishing, hence her love of Catfish. She loved to cook, and could make a meal of few ingredients into something.

Essie is survived by her daughter Angela White, (Timothy Comer), in Madison, Wisconsin her grand-daughters, DeAndrea (Kenneth) Tate, in Chicago Illinois, and LaLonnie White, of Madison, Wisconsin
Great-grandchildren Charmaine Weeden, and Kiera Tate in Chicago Illinois and her youngest brother, Luther Robinson of Bastrop ,Louisiana.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Coleman Robinson and Alberta Cunningham-Robinson, four brothers, Lee Edward Robinson, J.B Robinson, Limmie Robinson Sr. and Rochelle Robinson. Four sisters, Furtis Conley, Tisha Johnson, Maggie Moore, and Ruby Keys. Two sons, Roland’o Lee White, Gary Wayne White, and one grandson , Justin Jermane White, and a host of nieces,nephews,cousins,and other relatives and friends. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Foster Funeral Service is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
