Connie Ann Price Robinson


Connie Ann Price Robinson, 90, of Acworth, Georgia, formerly of Ooltewah, passed away on Saturday, May 20, 2023.

Born on Feb. 6, 1933, in Washington, D.C., to the late Esters Henry Price and Bernice Irene Garrison, Connie was a 1952 graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School, attended Bob Jones University and graduated from Erskine College in 1955.

While attending Erskine College, she met and married Herbert Julian Robinson on Aug. 2, 1956, and shared an amazing and beautiful love for one another.

Connie was a second-grade teacher in Bisbee, Arizona, while her husband, Herb, was serving in the U.S. Army.

Connie was involved in church her entire life and was a member of New Hope Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga, which became her second family. She enjoyed music — from singing and playing the piano to being a handbell soloist.

She had a love for all animals, raising horses on their family farm in Ooltewah.

Later in life, she was a self-taught watercolor artist, creating hundreds of works of art.

Connie was preceded in death on May 7, 2023, by her husband of 67 years, Dr. Herbert Julian Robinson. They exemplified remarkable love and devotion for each other.  In addition to her parents, Connie was preceded in death by her sister, Esteen Bernice Price.

She will be remembered as a wonderful wife and mom who brought joy to everyone throughout her life.

She is survived by her daughter, Terry (Brad) Matthaidess; son, Gary L. (Claudia) Robinson; grandson, Cole Matthaidess; and several nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 12:45 p.m. on Friday, May 26, 2023, at Heritage Funeral Home (7454 E. Brainerd Road, Chattanooga) with the Rev. Art Jones officiating.

The family will receive friends from noon to 12:45 p.m. on Friday at the funeral home.

Burial will be held at the Chattanooga National Cemetery.
