In Loving Memory of Ms. TahlonyaRoche’ Pipkin (Robinson)


September 15, 1981- June 9, 2020


Tahlonya Roche Pipkin was born September 15, 1981 to the proud parents of Teresa Gail Tuff and Rodney Robinson.


Tahlonya attended South Seattle Community College where she graduated from the Medical Billing Program. She also studied Project Management at Bellevue Community College. Tahlonya later went on to follow her heart which was cosmetology, her calling. She spent countless hours putting comb to scalp and gained a thriving clientele for many years and made quite a name for herself in the process! She came into this world commanding attention and if you were anywhere in proximity, you were certainly hooked. Her beautiful smile and bubbly personality could fool the rain into thinking that it was a bright and sunny day. Her hearth was full of compassion for each and every person that was blessed to cross her path.


As a child Tahlonya loved to dance and she could out dance the best. In fact, she passed it down to the true love of her life, her daughter Teresa. Tahlonya loved being a mom to Teresa, and Teresa loved being Tahlonya’s mom too! The two of them had a special bond. She was also the Social coordinator for our family and the glue for her siblings. Our family is so incredibly grateful to have had her in our lives. We will do everything to keep her memory alive.


She is proceeded in death by her maternal mother Teresa Gail Tuff, Grandmother Annie Grace Hester, Great Grandmother Elois M. Hester, Uncle Michael James, Antoine Robinson, Javon Moss, Te’Ara Ezell and Justin Jenkins. She leaves to celebrate her memory; Daughter Teresa M.L. Brooks, Adopted parents; Mario Pipkin, Valerie Pipkin, Rodney Robinson, Grandparents; James Pipkin, Dorothea Pipkin, Siblings; Marcellis Pipkin, Taurean Pipkin, Mariceo Pipkin, Tyrah Moss, Rodney Robinson Jr., And a host of Aunties, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces, and nephews.


The family would like to thank every one of you for your prayers and outpouring of love and support during our time of loss. May God bless and keep you.
