A private celebration of life service will be held on Thursday, July 2 at First Presbyterian Church with Rev. Wes Pitts officiating. Inurnment will follow in the Church Columbarium. Frances was born in Caswell Co. to the late James Nathaniel Slade and Nettie Frances Allision Slade. She was a longtime member of First Presbyterian Church. She was a nurse for over forty years working in various medical facilities including the American Tobacco Company and Annie Penn Hospital. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, making pottery as well as perfecting the art of beading (making necklaces and bracelets which she would give to her grandchildren and friends).

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Wallace Elliott Robinson and daughter, Amy Frances Robinson; brother, James Edgar Slade; sisters, Lula Allen Chaney and Faye Allison Page. She is survived by her sons, James Royal Robinson and wife, Amy Pegram Robinson, John Wallace Robinson and wife, Dr. Erica Fields; grandchildren, Whitney Robinson Chapmon and husband, Ethan, Spencer Robinson, Magnolia and Fiona Robinson; brother, Joe Slade and wife, Joan; numerous nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to Hospice of Rockingham County, P.O. Box 281, Wentworth, NC 27375.
