Treva Charlene Robertson, 71, of Collegedale, died on Sunday, February 22, 2009 at her home.

She was born July 2, 1937 in Hudsonville, Mi., to Vettie and Edna VanAllen.

Devoted wife and mother of five, she was a member of the Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist Church where she had served as Head Deaconess, was on the church board, and had served on the Samaritan Center Board.

She obtained her Masters Degree in Nursing and spent a number of years teaching in the nursing department of Southern Adventist University. She had served as Executive V.P. For Nursing at Memorial Hospital.
