HAMPTON - Alice "Seeka" Robinson, 87, passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, November 12, 2013. Alice was born in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands and was a resident of Hampton for 59 years. She married the love of her life, William H. Robinson (Robbie) in 1954 and they had a son, William "Danny" Robinson six years later. Alice was a devoted school teacher for more than 25 years in both the Newport News Public School System and the Hampton Laboratory School at Hampton University. Her dedication to her students went well beyond the classroom as evident by the number of former students who to this day, consider themselves her "children". Alice was a member of St. Cyprian's Episcopal Church, The Newport News - Hampton Chapter of The Continental Societies, Inc., and Hampton University Alumni Association. Alice will be loved and missed by her sister, Ina Chinnery; son, Danny; daughter-in-law, Paula Saylor-Robinson; grandchildren, Spencer and Shelby Robinson; stepdaughter, Ira Anne Newsome; and a host of nieces, nephews, "adopted" children, and friends. Viewing will be held Friday, November 15th from 12:00-6:00 p.m. at Ronald C. Perkins Funeral Home, 251 W. Queen Street, Hampton. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the funeral service which will be held in St. Cyprian's Episcopal Church, Saturday, November 16th at 1:00 PM.
