Helen Louise Mosby (Robinson), 71, a resident of Los Angeles, California, went on to be with the Lord on September 2, 2013, at Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles.
Helen was born in Natchez, Mississippi on August 10, 1942, to Louie and Georgia Robinson. She was the eldest of four children: Louie Robinson, Jr., Donald (deceased), and Willie Hendrick. She attended Prince St. Elementary and went on to graduate from Sadie D. Thompson High School in 1960. Helen was married to her former (late) husband, Charles D. Mosby in 1961. Of that union, she had three sons, Elliot, Don, and Elgin.
She spent her working career at the Los Angeles County Department of Family and Children Services working in the adoption department. She worked there for 38 years and had recently retired in 2011. She volunteered at People's Coordinated Services as an administrative assistant. She also worked at polling centers during election time. Her hobbies included shopping, going out to eat, and watching old movies.
Helen was a member of Holman United Methodist Church from 1969 until 2008. She later became a member of Maranatha Community Church in 2009 and served on the hostess team, where her son Elgin and his family are members.
She is preceded in death by her son Don and her brother Donald Robinson. She is survived by two brothers, Louie (Mary) and Willie (Christine); two sons, Elliot and Elgin (April); three granddaughters, Michole, Briana, and Christian; two nieces, Leigh and Ophelia; four nephews, Donovan, Jason, Samuel, and Don, Jr.; and a host of extended family and friends.
Helen's last words before her passing were, “I am ready.”
“Don't be troubled. You trust God, now trust in me. There are many rooms in my Father's home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would tell you plainly. When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.”
