Okeechobee - Viola Jane Robinson was called home June 24, 2018 to be with her beloved husband. She was born Nov. 26, 1948 in Goshen, Ind. to the late William McDaniel and surviving Eva Marie Sellars. A resident of Okeechobee for 36 years, she was a homemaker, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother that gave away every ounce of love she had daily.
Viola was blessed with every nurturing skill required to care for her husband, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and everyone in between with love, ease, and a patience that such a significant job required. She did not complete her education, but instead met and married the love of her life, Marcus Maurice Robinson, at the tender age of 17. This love of 51 years grew into two sons, one daughter, twelve grandchildren, and seventeen great-grandchildren. She is the matriarch of a large and loving family guided always and forever by her unconditional love and unwavering loyalty to her family. She lived her life in complete dedication and love for her family.
Mrs. Robinson was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years, Marcus Robinson; and her father, William McDaniel.
She is survived by her sons, Jeff Robinson and Tracy Robinson; daughter, Wendy Madrigal (Moe), all of Okeechobee; twelve grandchildren; seventeen great-grandchildren; mother, Eva M. Sellars, of Mooresville, Ind.; sisters, Gloria Robinson (Randy), of Sebring, and Cindy Cook, of Mooresville, Ind.; brothers, Bruce McDaniel (Penny), of Pompano Beach, Mark McDaniel (Evelyn), of Mooresville, Ind., and Rusty Sellars, of Mooresville, Ind.; and numerous nieces and nephews.
