Covington, GA Barbara "Bobbie" Camp Robinson, age 88, of Covington, passed away Tuesday, January 5, 2021. Bobbie was the daughter of Lewis Reid Camp and Marguerite Leonard Camp of East Point, GA, who have preceded her in death. She was born in Rico, GA, and grew up in East Point, GA. After graduating from Russell High School, she attended St. Joseph's Nursing School in Atlanta and became a Registered Nurse. Bobbie began her career as a visiting health nurse for the United States Postal Service and later transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services, where she worked for several health clinics in Atlanta until she retired. She continued to use her skills after retirement and took care of her husband, Bill, when he was diagnosed with ALS. He was able to remain at home until his passing. Bobbie helped many who needed her assistance, including driving others to doctors' appointments and checking on the elderly in the community. She was an accomplished pianist and shared this love with her family and friends. Bobbie encouraged others to sing or play along with her and brought much joy to all. After retirement, she and husband, Bill, built their retirement home with their son, Wade, serving as contractor and builder. The home was on Lake Jackson at the original family cabin site where they spent many happy days. They lived there and enjoyed being at the lake with family and friends. Bobbie enjoyed swimming and would swim across the lake with her sister, Marty. In earlier years, she taught many to swim and water ski. Bobbie was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She volunteered in the community by helping make lunches for the Youth Ministry as they worked on summer programs in Conyers. She also helped serve Thanksgiving meals at the Food Pantry in Covington. Bobbie will be remembered for her caring and giving heart and her love of family, friends, music, and the lake life! She was preceded in death by her husband, William Robinson.
