Robin Godwin Gasque completed her journey home on Friday, Sept. 21, 2018, to the welcoming words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”

Robin was born in Wayne County on Dec. 6, 1961, to the late Mickey and Wilma Godwin. She received her master’s from East Carolina University and worked as the executive director of organizational development for Wilson County Schools. Robin was a beautiful person whose loving spirit and ever present smile radiated the joy she experienced in living every day of her life.

Robin was deeply devoted to her family and was happiest when she was at the beach or with the “light of her life,” her daughter, Tarrah.

In her battle with cancer, she was a constant inspiration, and those who knew her will always remember her joy in living, her faith in God, her laughter, her positive attitude, her caring and loving ways and of course, her strength.

The family will receive friends on Monday, Sept. 24, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Faith Free Will Baptist Church in Goldsboro, followed by a service to celebrate Robin’s life at 7 p.m. in the sanctuary of Faith Church. The family will gather on Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 3 p.m. in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery for a committal service.

Robin is survived by her husband, William Eugene Gasque; daughter, Tarrah Mitchell, and fiancée John Cooley; sister, Abby Kornegay, and husband Owen of Princeton, and their son, Daniel; brothers, Mike Pendergraft and wife Tracy of Goldsboro and their sons, Austin, Aaron, Garrett and Grayson, and Ricky Godwin and wife Cindy of Wilmington.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be given in her memory to gofundme.com/robin-gasque-memorial-fund. For additional information please visit this website to learn how you can honor Robin’s memory and help assist others fighting cancer.
