ROBINSON, Gloria C., of Mechanicsville, peacefully passed away at her home on January 3, 2022, surrounded by her loving family and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband and the love of her life for 55 years, John W Robinson; her parents, Anne and Muncie Cox; and a son, Mark Steven Robinson. She is survived by her children, John W. Robinson Jr. (Debbie), Cindy Clisham, Debra Swingle and Linda Rhodes (Tim); her beloved grandchildren, Melissa, Dustin, and Jason Robinson, Brittney and Leah Clisham, Annie and Nicholas Swingle and Nicki Rhodes. A proud Hokie, Gloria graduated from Virginia Tech as a Registered Dietician.  She worked at St. Mary’s Bon Secour hospital and began a consulting service for dialysis patients.  Her hard-work ethics and the kindness and respect she showed everyone made a profound difference in many of her patients’ lives and those of her family and friends.  She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile, her quick wit, her gentle and kind manner, and her true love of life. Her greatest treasure was her devotion to God.
