Robbie Mazingo arrived in Heaven late in the evening Thursday, September 1, 2022. She slipped quietly from this life in her home surrounded by her family. Robbie was born in Leon County, Texas, the sixth of eleven children on February 15, 1927, to Ruth Beggs Mullenax and Clint P. Mullenax. After graduating from Oakwood High School at the age of 16, she went to work for Southwestern Bell in Houston. In 1944 she married Clarence Preston Mazingo. Together they had five children and from 1964 to 1992 owned and operated Allied Frances Transfer and Storage in Tyler. She was widowed in 1987. In 1989 married Wesley Vineyard, widowed again in 2003.
Robbie was devoted to her Lord. Her faith was her solid rock, the Bible her guide. In service to Jesus Christ, she was dedicated to her church, her family, to hospitality and care for others. She was an active member of Grace Baptist Church in Palestine, Sylvania Church in Tyler, and currently First Baptist Church of Mixon. For many years she has been a participating member of the Bullard Chapter of the Eastern Star. Her game was volleyball which she took very seriously. She was among the best of bakers and down-home cooks. Her door was always open and a cake always on her cake plate. As a talented seamstress she clothed us all, including wedding dresses. Friends characterized her as having the best business sense and the warmest heart.

Strong faith, love, family, and joy in all things is the legacy she leaves with all who knew her.
