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.
