Ada L. Robinson was born February 11, 1930, to the late Camilla Harris and David Robinson in Mansfield, Louisiana. She was the eighth of eight children. In 1945 under the pastorate of Rev. H.C. Charity, Ada united with Union Baptist Church and remained a faithful member for over 68 years under Rev. Milton Marshall, Sr.
On September 21, 1943 at age 13, Ada moved to Los Angeles, California. Ada received her high school diploma from Los Angeles David Starr Jordan High School. In June, 1963, Ada received her Associate of Arts degree in Fashion Design from Los Angeles Trade Technical College.
In 1945, Ada met Wilson Douglas. They married on December 25, 1946 by Rev. H.C. Charity and to this union they had one daughter, Sharon Diane.
Ada started her career as a pattern maker and cutter at Monterey Modes of California in Los Angeles, a high end clothing manufacturer. She was later promoted to Fashion Designer. She started "Miss Ada" clothing line.
To Ada, family and friends were a gift from God and she enjoyed their presence. One of the highlights of Ada's life was traveling to Washington D.C. to attend President Barack Obama's 2009 Presidential Inauguration.
