Dorothy Pauline "Dot" Robbins

May 1, 1934 - February 4, 2021

Dorothy Pauline “Dot” Robbins, 86, of Port Neches, died Thursday, February 4, 2021. She was born May 1, 1934, in Port Arthur, to Gladys Theresa Hebert Judice and Waysie Joseph Judice.

Dot’s life was nothing short of amazing. There is a saying that people can either lead a life of success or a life of significance and we would say that her life has been successfully significant. On the day of her passing to be with God, she had received many phone calls from numerous loved ones. Although she was non-responsive, you can bet she knew who each and every caller was, and she was comforted by them all. Each person spoke to her through speaker phone as it was placed by her ear to make sure she could hear them. The recurring theme seemed to be that she had taught them about the importance of family and how she had changed their lives. As one of her nieces reminisced, “She raised us all and taught us everything we need to know in order to be good people.” We all knew her “goodness, kindness, and funniness.”

Dot was “Mom” to seven children and their spouses. She enjoyed spending time with her sisters. They were her best friends. With two of her sisters being several years younger, she often treated them and their spouses like her own children. She even gave their children their first baths and babysat frequently. Many others called her “Granny” even though they were not actually her grandchildren. She welcomed the gesture by attending their weddings; showers; plays; dance performances; etc. Dot always made everyone she met feel special and as if they were truly a part of her family. As one of her granddaughters remembered, “Everyone loved Granny. She did everything she could to make it to games; school programs; talent shows; and award ceremonies.”

Many of her grandchildren have reminisced of some other well-known facts about their Granny: the expired food in the refrigerator that had to be eaten; her bad driving; her fabulous macaroni and cheese; too much sugar in the tea; and always running late, though she always showed up! Dot apparently believed that it was okay to be late to church as long as she heard the words, “The Mass has ended, you may go in peace.” Her rosary was an extension of her hand. She believed strongly in the importance of family and none of her children could miss a family event or she would give them a call. If anyone had an illness or surgery, she was there to take care of them; feed them; clean their homes; and run their errands.

Dot enjoyed having visitors and nobody left her home without being offered something to eat. You were served on a paper plate. None of the silverware or glasses matched. She simply didn’t feel that it was important. To her, it was about spending time with family. Dot also loved movies and was quick on the draw with the remote. If she thought you were about to leave, she would start a movie. She was frugal and could make a ten-dollar dress look like it was worth a million. She absolutely loved Christmas and every child, grandchild, and great-grandchild received a gift. On a very limited budget, she would purchase approximately ninety gifts each year. This past year was no exception. Even as sick as she was, Dot still went shopping and her gifts filled the room. This was an amazing testament of her wanting everyone to know that she loved them.

Dot Robbins was a mother; sister; aunt; grandmother; great-grandmother; and a friend to many, but most of all, she was successfully significant to us all and her loving impact will be with us forever and always.

Survivors include her children, Ricky Robbins and wife, Maeve; Mark Robbins and wife, Karen; Drew Robbins and wife, Sheri; James Todd Robbins and wife, Tammie; Royce Robbins and wife, Sandy; Cindy Doyle and husband, Mike; and Gene Robbins and wife, Debbie; grandchildren, Billy Paul Van Pelt and wife, Brittni; Gregg Robbins and wife, Danielle; Lori Shaw; Becky Stewart and husband, Ken; Chris McRee; Joe McRee and wife, Laci; Lucas McRee; Katie McRee Perkins and husband Jonathan; Shane Robbins and wife, Crystal; Jessica Kline and husband, Chris; Lisa Rand and husband, Joey; Heather Robbins; Leticia Sedatole; Amanda Hand and husband, Bobby; Landon Louviere and wife, Erika; Derek Landreneau and wife, Abby; Chrissie Hartley and spouse, Monica Lenker; Daniel Cline and wife, Amanda; Amanda De Los Santos and husband, Chris; Alexis Vincent; Jason Robbins and fiancé, Heather Hanks; Brandi Johnson; Brooke Ancelet and husband, Josh; Kyrie Robbins; Brady Robbins and fiancé, Devon Bruder; Corey Robbins and fiancé, Jonathan; Carly Robbins; and Madelyn Robbins; great-grandchildren, Will and Delani Van Pelt; Kenley and Kamron Livingston; Blake Rainey and fiancé, Carrie LeJune; Bryce and Brittni Batson; Gabriel Patton; River and Ridge Werth; Kendall and Parker Stewart; Brayden, Abby, Mackenzie, and Kadyn McRee; Adam, Ameilya, and Brighid Perkins; Kadence and Grant Robbins; Garret Roberts; Aubrey Kline; Jay Rand; Grant Gula; Alyssa Sedatole; Hayleigh and Hunter Hand; Blake, Ryan, and Claire Louviere; Gracie and Chloe Landreneau; Jonah and Asher Hartley; Tyler and Alyssa De Los Santos; Mason, Eli, and Faith Cline; Gavin, Nathan, and Madison Johnson; and Kieran Ancelet; sisters, Hazel Jensen; Carliss Beard and husband, Chuck; and Judy Siguaw and husband, Kevin Ferguson; and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.

Renee Hedges

There is so much that can be said about the amazing person Dot was. She was so giving and kind. She always treated me like part of the family even though I was an ex-daughter in law. I loved her with all my heart. She always had a way to make you laugh without even trying to. I have lots of special memories of time with her. Even if I had not seen her in a while, when I showed up it was as if I had been there all along. Thank you Dot for all the laughs, love and kindness you gave to me. You will be missed beyond measure. Even though you were very ill, you called me when my mother passed away in January telling me you were going to try to make it to the funeral. You wanted to comfort and support me. Of course, I told you, “Don’t you dare get out and do that. If you want to bless me, stay home and take care of yourself.” That is just the kind of person she was. Your journey here is done. You left a beautiful legacy behind. Rest now in the arms of God. You and my mom can fly high together and watch over us all. I will love you forever. Sending my love and deepest condolences to the family. You are in my prayers during this time of loss.

Tina Youngblood Maurich

We have so many wonderful memories of Dot. She welcomed us into her family like we were one of her own. Todd is our brother in law, and we were always treated as if we were just another member of her large family. Every holiday, no matter the ocasion, she would make sure that we made a plate te eat, and would alwlays make sure to ask how everyone was doing and always made us feel special. She was such a wonderful special soul that will be missed. Sending prayers and love to all. The Irvin family

If you knew Dot at all you would know that on May 1, 1934, a nurturing spirit, filled with love and light entered this world with purpose and unmatched enthusiasm. She embraced gatherings with family like no one else and was the most willing participant in every facet of life. If it provided the opportunity to help someone in need, spend time with her family, enjoy a lot of laughter or let someone know they were special to her, she was eager to be there. Her arrivals may have been delayed but it truly seemed that every occasion never reached its height of joy and comfort until she arrived. When Dot showed up you always felt reassured and you knew that all was truly right with the world. It would be nearly impossible to find anyone who worked as tirelessly, or was so willing to make the effort to show up for every special event, big or small. If it was an important moment in your life then it mattered to her and you could bet she would be there. She had many gifts: To list a few, her integrity was extraordinary, second to none. Her love and devotion for her family was legendary but her greatest gift was her presence, her life force, that core essence we all could count on. Dot was our constant, a pure and magnanimous spirit, who made, literally, everyone, feel welcome. The gravity of her life and the impact of her thoughtfulness and generosity leave an indelible print on each and everyone of us. With heavy hearts we hold onto every memory and feel immeasurable gratitude that we were given this life to share with her. There will never ever be another of her kind.

Todd, I’d really like to extend my condolences to you and your family. It was such a shock to hear about your mother. I find it so strange how time doesn’t seem to make it any easier to believe. When we lose them nothing ever feels quite the same again, especially when you share the kind of bond you two always had....It was quite extraordinary. She couldn’t have asked for a more devoted son and I have no doubt she was very pleased with you. It’s amazing how fast the seasons go by. One day they’re giving us our foundation and before we know it, they need us to become theirs. Your mom was such a good woman. I’ve thought of he too many times to count. My heart goes out to all of you. We will be praying for you and for your family that you are given peace and comfort in the coming years. May God bless you always.

Vickie Sauerwein

Drew: I am so sorry about the death of your Mother. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Stephen and Sandra Beaugh

Cindy, I am so sorry. Our prayers are with you and your family through this difficult time.

Dot was our constant....a magnanimous spirit who literally gave everything she had to this life, especially to those around her. It was a widely known “secret” that Dot never locked her doors and it serves as the ultimate metaphor for how she lived her life....everyone was welcome. The gravity of her life and the impact of her thoughtfulness and generosity leave an imprint on each of us.
