Marcella Virginia "Chena" Rambin Robbins passed away at 11:10 pm on Friday November 1, 2019, All Saints Day. She was born September 26, 1929 to Amos and Lucille Rambin. She was one of 11 siblings raised during the Great Depression and WWII, events that shaped her as well as our great country.

Her parents taught her that unwavering faith, unconditional love and unfailing hope would take her through all seasons of life and Chena was the perfect example of these virtues to not only her parents and siblings, husband of 56 years Marvin Robbins, and their 10 children, 21 grandchildren, and 22 great grandchildren, but also to innumerable aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Everyone who ever met Chena found in her a wellspring of love, comfort, and acceptance, regardless of race, creed or economic status. She once said, "This family never throws anyone away. We keep each other...always".
