Jo Ann Robinson passed into the arms of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Saturday April 18, 2009. Jo Ann was born in Dennison, Texas on December 4, 1914. She lived in Manhattan Beach, CA for 54 years where she was a dedicated homemaker. She worked for many years as a Manager at Broadway Department Stores. Having been widowed for the second time she retireed from The Broadway in her early 60's and took ballroom dancing lessons. From that time on she went ballroom dancing three times a week - it was her favorite activity. When she wasn't dancing she was involved in her second love, quilting. She also enjoyed playing cards with her friends as well as working jigsaw and crossword puzzles. She is survived by daughters Carol Kratzer (Don), Linda Palmer (Ken) and Donna Terranova plus six grandchildren, several great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her first husband, Carl Schultz, her husband Clyde Robinson, daughter Judy, step-son Clyde, Jr., and step-daughter Doris Rich.
