Lenora Atkinson Robinson

August 10, 1946 — October 13, 2020

Lenora Atkinson Robinson was born on August 10, 1946, to the late Deacon David and Mother Sallie Atkinson. She married the late Harold Robinson Sr. in 1964 and to this union was born three children. She departed this earthly life on October 13, 2020.
She was a 1964 graduate of Forest Hill High School. She graduated from Johnston Community College with her cosmetology degree in 1992 and became the owner and operator of Nottie's Beauty Salon.
At an early age, Lenora was a member of Bentonville Disciples of Christ Church. Later she joined St. John Disciples of Christ Church where she served as a Mother, Secretary, and Sunday School Superintendent. She was the former Miss Western Assembly Queen, the Chairperson of the Hospitality Committee and the Western Assembly Queen Campaign, and the Rental Scheduling Director. She was a faithful member of Community Outreach Ministries. She was one of the many pillars of the Hickory Grove Community.
She LOVED music and singing! Her love of music led her to be a director of the Hickory Grove Sunshine Band, serving as president of The Atkinson Family Mass Choir, and to sing alongside her sisters in their group, God's Choice.
She is preceded in death by David and Sallie Atkinson (Parents), Harold Robinson, Sr. (Husband), and Jonathan, Helen, David, Robert, and Diane (Siblings).
