Obituary

Amid God’s grandiose creation, he uses lilies, daffodils, and roses to tack down the carpet of the earth. Likewise, he uses individuals with warm hearts and kind spirits to frame the network of humanity, preparing them for a life of servitude and eternity in Jesus Christ. God breathed the breath of life into one such person,Geraldine Robinson Dawkins, born to Inez Watts and the late Elmer Robinson in Bridgeton, New Jersey, on April 29, 1957, the eldest of three children. She was a sibling to ten other brothers and sisters living in numerous cities across the continental United States.

Reared by her grandparents, Ida and Henry Robinson, Geraldine (fondly referred to as Geri) learned the importance of having a God-fearing life and education at an early age. As such, she answered the call of salvation at Jerusalem Baptist Church (a little church in the woods according to Geri), where she was baptized and served as a faithful member. She was educated in the public schools of Cumberland County, New Jersey and graduated from Bridgeton Senior High School in 1976.

While residing in New Jersey, Geri gave birth to her two girls, Heather and Lisa. With a desire to reside closer to her mother and siblings, she relocated to Florida in 1980. Within a short time, she was employed by the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services, currently known as Florida Department of Children and Families, (DCF) in 1981 and later gave birth to her son Willie Jr. In the years to come, God blessed her to nurture a nephew, Richie, and daughter, Nicole.

While employed with DCF, Geraldine held various positions and retired after 35 years as an Economic Self-Sufficiency Specialist Supervisor. Her last position with DCF, prior to the onset of her illness, was Government Operations Consultant I, which had responsibility for quality initiatives for the Economic Self-Sufficiency Program.

In 1999, Geri met her soulmate, Neville Dawkins, whom she married on March 28, 2014. He gave her a new nickname, “Geral Queen”. Together, they could often be found rendering service at a celebration ceremony for a colleague or other social activity. She was very engaged in a purpose-driven life and used her talents of cooking and interior decorating to engage others. Those skills also caused her to be successful in catering and decorating venues for social events, which was a post DCF career she endeavored to pursue. Geri also found much pleasure in shopping and travelling, especially with her “BFFs”.

Mrs. Geraldine “Geral Queen” Robinson Dawkins, age 62, completed her journey and transitioned into eternal rest on Wednesday, December 25, 2019, at her home in Miramar, Florida, surrounded by her family and a few close friends.

Those left to preserve her memory are: her loving and devoted husband, Neville Dawkins; her children, Heather Nadine Williams, Earnalisa E. Nicholson(Jason Michael), Willie Allen, Jr., Richard Johnson, and Nicole Dawkins, all of Miramar; 11 grandchildren, Rykevia Mosley, Deijai Lewis, Mondedrick Williams, Alexis Williams, Zion Lewis, Sebastian Lewis, Mystique Williams, Shaira Turner, Liberty McQueen, Jaylinna Nicholson, and Nicholas Dawkins; two great- grandchildren, Kentrel Rebeiro and Zariah Lewis; mother, Inez Watts of Miami, FL; 11 siblings, Nell Harris - CA, Trudy Harris - NC, Josie Jones (Brantley) - GA, Margaret Watts - FL, Barbara Bloomfield - NC, Elmer Robinson, Jr. (Barbara) - SC, Harold Robinson - SC, Charles
Robinson, (Cathy) - VA & FL, DeSamuel Robinson (Tara) - VA, Willie Watts (Mary) - CA, Bruce Watts - CA; and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, in-laws, and dear friends.

She is preceded in death by two siblings, Dianne Noble and Carl Watts - FL
