Julie “Robin” Sample, of Lonoke, beloved daughter, sister, mother, “BeBe” and friend left here and entered Beulah land on Sunday, July 26, 2015.
Robin was born on March 9, 1957 to J.E. and Julia (Taylor ) Sample. She was the third of six children.
Robin graduated from Lonoke High School and several years later decided to go to nursing school. She worked at Wal-Mart for several years and at Golden Years Manor for a great many years, but has spent the last 14 years working for Dr. Les Anderson.
She was many things to many people, but the one thing she was to everyone was a woman who stood strong in her faith. She loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and was always glad to share her personal testimony with others. Robin loved to work for the Lord and was always busy with something in the church.
Robin was a member of New Bethel MBC in Hazen, where she served faithfully in many areas, from teaching the children, to blessing and touching all with her music. She had the voice of an angel here and is now singing her praises to the King in person.
Robin was preceded in death by her father, J.E. Sample and a sister, Debbie (Sample) Shreve.
She is survived by her mother, Julia Hart of Lonoke; three brothers, Curtis Sample of Milton, Florida, John Sample of Bonney Lake, Washington, and Tracy (Mary) Sample of Shertz, Texas; one sister, Patti Hart of Jacksonville, Arkansas; three children, Jennie (Todd) Cole of Hazen, Joe (Sarah) Mills of Hazen and Sara (Seth) Justice of North Little Rock; two grandchildren, Carlee and Laycee Mills of Hazen; 6 step-grandchildren, Britney (Rob) Jackson of Stuttgart, Shelia Thompson of Stuttgart, Darius Cole of Hazen, Alanais and Kalib Cole of Lonoke, and Marquelle Cole of Furlow; 6 six step-great grandchildren all of Stuttgart; 10 nieces and nephews and 16 great nieces and nephews and a host of other family and friends.
