Resided in: Candler, NC

Clarise Hoxit Robinson, 90, passed away Friday, November 13, 2020, at the CarePartners Solace Center.

Mrs. Robinson was born May 27, 1930, in Jackson County to the late Eldon Lee and Anna Laura Bryson Hoxit. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert B. Robinson (1997) and her sisters Girlene Hoxit Hyatt and Bernice Hoxit Bishop. She had worked in the Credit/Audit Department of Sears, and she was a member of West Asheville Baptist Church.

Mrs. Robinson was a 1949 graduate of Sylva Central High School where she was distinguished as Salutatorian. She remained faithfully supportive of her husband Robert, a career Marine, as the couple made the sacrifices a military family understands. Upon her husband’s retirement, they moved from Camp LeJeune back to the Asheville area.

She is survived by her son, Ross Robinson (Susan); grandchildren, Jim Robinson (Eva), Melanie Hunter (Tim) and Joshua Robinson; great-grandchildren Nancy Jo Robinson, Autumn Hunter, Nelson Robinson and Lauren Hunter; brothers Harold Hoxit (Barbara) and Johnny Hoxit (Frances).

The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to Dr. Yaron Fridman and the Care Team at
Asheville Cardiology Associates, and also the Care Team at Asheville CarePartners Solace Center who lovingly cared for her.
