Safire Renee Robinson

Safire Renee Robinson

  Safire Renee Robinson was born April 5, 1992 in Des Moines, Iowa to Homer “Dog” Robinson and Necole Hellems. Tragically Safire’s mother passed away shortly after her birth.

Safire was educated in the Des Moines Public School system and graduated from Scavo High School. This was a challenging accomplishment as she    suffered from Sickle Cell disease. She worked several jobs but couldn’t maintain them because of the disease.

Safire didn’t let Sickle Cell define her. She was totally a Fashionista, loving all things fashion and make up. She would dress up to go to the grocery store. She not only dressed herself, but liked being other peoples’ stylist.  Safire loved nothing better than to hang out with her daughter, playing hair and makeup. She and her posse PGS (Pretty Girls Swag) would hang out, singing their favorite hip hop and R&B songs. Safire loved to eat, but she was a 2nd generation non-cooking person. But she could really bake.

And suddenly she was gone! Safire passed away on October 12, 2019. She was only 27 years old. There was a reunion in Heaven with her mother, Necole; her sister, Gabrielle and her brother, Marion Harris.

Left to cherish Safire’s memory are her daughter, Massayha Marcelline Peacola           Dunnigan; Massayha’s father, Kevonne Dunnigan; her siblings, Almeta    Sumlin, Lasharee Robinson, Dashaun Robinson, Nyelah Robinson, Chevelle   Robinson, Jamya Robinnson, Charnell  Harris, Tony Robinson, Asia Robinson,  Sabrina Robinson, Candice Robinson, Caydence Robinson, Jarron Johnson, Chanee Johnson Carla Sunkle, DeMarco Sunkle and Desiree Johnson; her grandmothers, Constance Bowen and Helen Robinson; grandfather, Johnny L Miller; aunts, Tiffany Robinson, Joyce Webster, Vickie Sumlin, Obie Sumlin, and Donyell Bailey-Hellems; uncles, Britt Hellems, Sr, Harold Webster, James Henderson, Johnny L Hellems, Sr,, Roman Deon Hellems, Sr,, Tommy     Johnson, Avery Scott and Raytheon Bannum Sr. along with a host of nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
