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.

She was a member of the National League of Nursing Accreditation Commission Board and had been President of District 4 Tennessee Nurses Association. She became a friend and mentor to her students, many of whom she retained as lifelong friends. Charlene continued to care for people as an administrator, a work she continued until her retirement.

She had a kindness and grace that touched everyone she met. The world will be a less elegant and less beautiful place without her. She will be forever missed and remembered.
