Miss Robin LaVonda Curtis of Kannapolis, NC transitioned from this earthly life to her heavenly home on May 14, 2020 at her residence.
Robin was born in High Point, NC on May 9, 1973 to Reverend B.D. Curtis and the late Bettye S. Curtis. Robin was a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist. She graduated from Southwest Guilford High School, Class of 1992. She earned her undergraduate degree and Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Winston-Salem State University and her Master’s Degree in Counseling from Capella University. Robin had a real passion for her chosen careers. She worked hard and was dedicated to helping her clients make better life choices and decisions to become addiction free. She served at several centers, the last being Doves Nest, Charlotte Rescue Mission.
Robin was a faithful and lifelong member of Foster Grove Baptist Church. She started out in the Tiny Tots Choir, moving up to the Young People’s Choir and then the Gospel Choir. She willingly helped whenever and wherever there was a need. She enjoyed many things, one of which was talking. She had a real “gift of gab.” Once, during first grade, a note was sent home with her stating that she was talking and not doing her work. When asked why she was talking so much and not doing her work, her response was that she was helping all the other kids. Robin also enjoyed various genres of music. She spoke of one day becoming a recording artist with her strong soprano voice. She was a member of the WSSU University Choir and spoke of the good times with classmates and touring. Robin was a very attentive listener. When talking to her, she often went into counselor mode, operating in her gift.
Robin was preceded in death by her mother, Bettye S. Curtis; one brother, Robert Curtis; paternal grandparents, Steve and Elizabeth Curtis; her maternal grandparents, Benjamin and Bernice Steele; several aunts, uncles and cousins.
She leaves to cherish dear memories: her father, Reverend B.D. Curtis; one brother, Ricky Curtis of Greensboro, NC; one sister, Kimberly Curtis of High Point, NC; two nephews, Byron Miller and Jamall Miller; two very special godsons, Ocir and Zyon Black whom she loved dearly and was very proud of and was affectionately known to them as Robbie; a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family: sister, brothers and friends.
A private service will be held on Wednesday, May 20th, at Foster Grove Baptist Church in Jamestown, North Carolina. Burial will follow at Carolina Biblical Gardens.
