Sarah H. Robinson turns 100


Sarah Howard Robinson celebrated her 100th birthday on Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018, at St. Paul AME Church Shaw with her family and friends.

Born on Jan. 14, 1918, in Dalzell, she was the third of five children of the late Bland and Minnie Howard.

"Sweet," as she is affectionately called, is the widow of Wesley Robinson Jr. Their marriage was blessed with five sons, Roland, Leroy, George, William and John; and two daughters, the late Eartha and the late Luether.

In addition to relatives who love her, Sarah is surrounded by a host of friends and her church family, who look up to her for kind words and motherly direction.

"Sweet" is a quiet, unassuming and caring lady. As a member of St. Paul AME Church, she has been involved with numerous ministries, including the senior choir and Women's Missionary Society. She loves to travel and stay in touch with family and friends. She once loved tending to her garden, and she loves to eat good food.

What is Sarah's secret of living to see 100? Trust in the Lord, pray, eat three meals per day, treat people the way you want to be treated, and God will give you favor.
