“One of her last favourite songs and verses is ‘through all the changing scenes of life, in trouble and joy the praises of my God will still be in my heart.’ Her family and many more will surely miss Mummy. However the faith she bestowed on us makes us believe that she is in a better place. Mummy, ayekoo! We love you,” he said.

The St Timothy Anglican Church, where she fellowshipped until her call to glory, also paid glowing tribute to the late Mrs Robertson.

Quoting 2 Timothy 1:12, the church eulogised her selfless show of love in Christ in her service to God.

“As a staunch member of the St Timothy Anglican Church, Mrs Robertson served God in the church. She was a dedicated member who had the church at heart and contributed immensely and in diverse ways to the growth of the church,” her tribute read.

Rev Father Samuel Ampim Hesse of the St Timothy Anglican Church, Nima, delivering the sermon, said death comes unannounced even when it is expected, adding that all would one day be as the late Mrs Robertson.

He however noted that when one is called to glory in Christ, he or she is not dead but has retired from earthly duty to be with God in heaven.

Rev Father Hesse, thus, urged the congregation to prepare for the ultimate appointment by setting their priorities right and pursuing things that would bring wealth to their souls.

The late Mrs Robertson was survived by four children, three in-laws, 15 grandchildren and one great grandchild.
