Rebecca Jane Workman Robinson, 78, passed peacefully September 16, 2020 with her family by her side.
A Christian mother, devoted grandmother and great-grandmother, Jane was a native of McDowell County and the Cross Mill community. She graduated McDowell High School in 1960 and married her former husband of 30 years in 1962. Together they had two daughters, Kim Henderson (Terry) and Nikki Honeycutt (Mike), three grandsons, Alex Harris, Drew Henderson, and Adam Harris (Harley), and three great granddaughters, Cora Harris, Emmalynn and Graelynn Henderson.
Jane loved her family and focused her life on giving them unconditional support, guidance and love especially to her surviving 102 year old mother, Alma Workman and her departed father Raymond Workman, Sr. She is also remembered for her work in the transportation industry as she and her former husband built Southwestern Freight Carriers, a company that provided employment for over 500 employees in NC, SC, and GA.
Jane was always a faithful, Christian servant and had compassion for those around her. She was a member of Kistler's Chapel United Methodist Church where she served as a Sunday School teacher, Bible School teacher, Pastor Parrish Committee member, and missions worker.
Jane will be dearly missed by those who knew her, heard her sweet laughter, and received her loving smiles, warm hugs, and words of constant encouragement. The family will receive friends at The Padgett King Mortuary on Saturday, September 19, 2020 from 5 until 7 o'clock. Funeral service and interment will be held at Kistler's Chapel United Methodist Church on Sunday, September 20, 2020 at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Masks and social distancing mandates will apply.
