Alma Fay Robinson Greer

Alma Fay Robinson Greer, age 90, passed away peacefully at her home in Shreveport, Louisiana on Saturday, March 5, 2022. Mrs. Greer was born August 29, 1931, in Danville, Louisiana, the 6th of 7 siblings, to Charles Bruce Robinson and Bernice Abercrombie Robinson. She spent her childhood in Danville, Louisiana, where she graduated from Friendship High School, and shortly after attended Business Girls Inn in Shreveport, Louisiana. She married her high school sweetheart, Don Alvin Greer on August 25, 1950, in her hometown. Don went on to serve in Korea from 1951-1953, while Alma gave birth to the first of their two children in July of 1951. Alma's interests were varied over the course of her life. She enjoyed basketball, pottery, painting and tennis. Mostly, however, she was a caregiver. There was no place any family member would rather be during the holidays, or alternately in times of struggle, than with "Granny". Her dedication to her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren was truly exceptional. Alma will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her, but she will live on in the hearts of her family and friends forever! Mrs. Greer is survived by her daughter, Diane Greer Miller of Shreveport, LA; grandson, Shelby Smith and wife, Carol Ann Smith of Shreveport, LA; granddaughter, Ashley Gage and husband Drew Gage of Prosper, TX; granddaughter Madison Greer of New Orleans, LA; and 5 great grandchildren, Ethan and Shelby \"Lanie\" Smith, and Harper, Finley, and Greer Gage; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and other extended family. Alma was preceded in death by her husband, Don Alvin Greer; her parents, Charles B. Robinson and Bernice Abercrombie Robinson of Danville, LA; her brothers, Charles "Sonny" Robinson and James "Bud" Robinson; her sisters, Bobbie Jean Robinson, Eloise "Dolly" Robinson, Mildred "Sis" Robinson Smelley and Louise Robinson Bailey and son, Don Alvin Greer, Jr. of Dallas, TX. A joint service will be held for both Don Alvin Greer and Alma Fay Robinson Greer at Rose-Neath Funeral Home, 2500 Southside Drive, Shreveport, Louisiana on Saturday, March 26, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Officiating the service will be Reverend Betsy Eaves. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials may be made in Don and/or Alma's name to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 or to the charity of the donor\'s choice.
