“Grandma” Ida Robertson loved people, especially kids. She was blessed with seven children, eight grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren. As one of eleven kids, she grew up poor in Cheesy Creek, WV.
Ida lived for Jesus, cooking for her family (she made THE BEST biscuits and gravy), and spending afternoons talking with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a storyteller and would call us up into her lap for a story about her time in West Virginia and memories of that beautiful place. We spent many summer days taking afternoon walks with her around the neighborhood, just enjoying her company. She was a relentless prayer warrior for her family and friends and would pray for each of us daily. Her walk with Christ was the most important thing to her and knowing that her family was walking with Christ gave her joy and peace.
So now, 10 years later after she was called Home, we want to honor her by giving back to others in a meaningful way. We have partnered with Shoes That Fit to provide shoes to children in need in her home state of West Virginia. She would be so proud to know that children could be given an opportunity to have a pair of shoes just for them that fit and give them the confidence to play and learn.
Our family invites you to make a donation to Ida’s Walk in loving memory of Ida Robertson, to the glory of God.
