Margie Ann Robinson


Sunrise: January 4, 1943

Sunset: April 1, 2024

The beloved Margie Ann Ward Robinson, 81, passed away on April 1, 2024, in Stafford, Virginia after battling Alzheimer’s disease.

Margie was born in South Carolina on Jan. 4, 1943, to Mrs. Uarriah B. Ward and Mr. Andrew Ward. She was one of eight children born to her parents.

Her parents moved from South Carolina to Virginia when Margie was a toddler. She grew up in Norfolk and was a graduate of Booker T. Washington High School. She attended Norfolk State University and earned a bachelor’s degree from Saint Leo University.

She was a faithful member of Mount Gilead Missionary Baptist Church in Norfolk. Before her illness, Margie was active in several ministries. Also, she was a member of the Oakwood Civic League and participated in the neighborhood clean-up and watch programs.

Margie was a pioneer professionally:

  • She was the first woman master chief storekeeper for the U.S. Naval Reserves.
  • As a civil servant, she earned the position grade of GS12 at NAVMASSO (Navy Management Systems Support Office) in Norfolk, Virginia.

She retired after achieving these significant professional goals.

Margie loved to read, take cruises and host family events at her home. She was an accomplished author and wrote and published two books. While Margie was quiet and reserved, she did not hesitate to speak her mind.

Margie LOVED her family. She was a committed and loyal wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister and auntie. For example, when her son and nephews joined the military, she wrote them letters on a regular basis to ease their homesickness. In addition, she updated the resumes’ of many family members, friends and colleagues, resulting in them earning promotions.

Until his passing on Feb. 1, 2024, Margie was married to Lee G. Robinson for more than 40 years. Their favorite song was “Forever Mine” by The O’Jays.

In addition to her husband and parents, those who preceded Margie in death are her son, Thurston Hall; four of her siblings, Myrtle L. Johnson, Doris W. Mims, Alfred J. Ward Sr. and Gloria J. Ward; and three of her brothers-in-law, Matthew Johnson, Elvard Middleton and Joe Mims.

Celebrating Margie as she transitions to heaven are her: 

  • Children: Terry Ward, Sr. and his wife, Stacey; Tracy Ward and his wife, Sedetra; and Andrew Hall and his wife, Felecia
  • Grandchildren: Amanda Bonneau, Ayanna Hall, Brandon Hall, DaQuan Hall, Jonathan Lauzon, Shytavia McDonald, Skylar Sutton-Ward, Breyon Ward, Lavelle Ward, Schantale Ward and Terry Ward Jr.

  • Siblings: Barbara W. Freeman and her husband, Daniel Freeman II; Elaine W. Middleton; James E. Ward Sr. and his wife, Vernell Ward; and Regina Ward, widow of Alfred Ward Sr.
  • Many nieces, nephews and “framily” members

    Margie A. Robinson
    You have our condolences. Sorry 😞 to hear of her passing because we talked in February.
    I said hello friend do know who I am? She replied you’re Vernell, you know people thought we were twins. We both laughed. She even knew my mother. Margie was a faithful member of the Oakwood Civic League. She also sung in the # 2 Choir. Margie & Lee have become one again but this time they are resting in heaven ❤️.
    Hold to God’s unchanging hand.
