Perrylyn Wilson-Robinson






Perrylyn Wilson-Robinson, affectionately known as Pearl, was born March 31, 1952 in Nashville, Arkansas to the proud parents the late Harold L. Wilson and Mavis Dodson-Wilson. Perrylyn passed away July 29, 2020.

Perrylyn’s educational foundation was established at an early age by her parents, both of whom were dedicated educators in the state of Arkansas. Perrylyn graduated from Searcy High School in 1970. Following in her mother’s footsteps, she attended the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. There she received a B.S. in Elementary Education. Perrylyn continued her studies and received her master’s degree in education from Ouachita Baptist College. Perrylyn accepted Christ at an early age. She was a dedicated member of Bethlehem Baptist Church.

Perrylyn married the love of her life, Paul Thomas Robinson. They were together for more than 50 years. Pearl and Paul were true definition of “opposites attract”. Their personalities balanced each other well. While Perrylyn liked to stay busy with school, and traveling the world or hanging with friends and family, Paul preferred to be less social and would eagerly await the details of her adventures when she returned home. Right until her last breath, she waited on his calm presence and sweet kiss, to give her permission and courage to go and rest.

Perrylyn’s teaching career was dedicated to the Little Rock School District for 39 years. She taught elementary students with true and steadfast dedication. Perrylyn loved her children. She was invested in their academic and social emotional growth and success. She formed an interpretational dance troupe to help instill self-esteem and discipline through the art dance. The Wilson-Robinson Dance Troupe danced at various events around the community.

Perrylyn was a proud and devoted member of Delta Sigma Theta, Sorority Incorporated.

Perrylyn is preceded in death by her parents; grandparents, Alta Wilson, Mr. and Mrs. Charley Dodson.

Perrylyn leaves to cherish her memory her devoted husband, Paul Thomas Robinson, loving sister, Judy Kaye Wilson, adoring aunt, Gladys Dodson-Young, and a host of godchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and family.

Mrs Wilson-Robinson was my 4th grade teacher and I was in her dance troop. She was a very caring , dedicated and loving woman. She really cared about us and we knew it. Thanks for mentoring us and grooming us for the adult world. You will forever be in our hearts. We love you and will miss you. Take your rest Queen. To the family: To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. She is at rest. Continued prayers for you all. Love you

About 2 years ago I joined this journey with Mrs. Robinson. For 2 years, we had a date every Thursday morning. I looked forward to seeing her for our dates. Over time, we became family. She always gave me words of encouragement and knew what to say and when to say it. She loved my babies and would tell me before she would leave, "love ya and kiss my babies for me". Mrs. Robinson I thank GOD for allowing us to cross paths. You know I loved you and Mr. Paul. You both loved me and my babies also. Today we will have lunch at Chik F La in your honor. I'm going to truly miss you. Unselfishly, I know you are in a much better place! You fought a strong fight! I'll forever have our memories! Love you Mrs. Robinson! Take your rest sweetie!

Perrylyn Wilson-Robinson was a classmate of mine in high school. She was fun, energetic and had an infectious laugh.
I will always remember her that way. Whenever our paths would cross after high school, she was the same friendly, wonderful person that I knew in high school. Prayers for the family left behind.
