Robin Altman Gates, 64, a beloved mother, grandmother, and the daughter of Sweeney Lee Altman and Grace White Altman-Johnson, entered her Eternal Home joining her awaiting Savior, family, and friends, on Friday morning, September 28, 2018, from Roper Hospice Cottage.
Ms. Gates was born May 12, 1954, in Lake City.  She was a graduate of Johnsonville High School and attended the Baptist College of Charleston.  She was a retired employee of South Carolina State Ports Authority.  She wanted her life to count for something and developed a passion for the Turbeville Children’s Home.  She participated in the monthly vegetable collection for the Home at Hanna’s Chapel.  Items were purchased and collected for the Home as well. Her last project was planning a large Yard Sale to benefit the Home, however, time did not allow for this project to be completed.  Robin was also very active in finding and securing gifts, toys, clothing, etc., for her Mother’s many Mission Trips overseas (orphanages, hospitals, and nursing homes were included in each trip).  She was always a loving, caring, person and showed concerned about others by continuously making care packages (including Christmas stockings) for those she felt needed some special attention at all holidays.   
She leaves behind:  her mother, Grace; her daughter, Staci Gates; two grandchildren, Kali and Morgan; a brother, Avery Lee Altman; two sisters, Ardith Koon and Clyce  (Brian) Atwood; and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her father.
A Home Going Celebration will be 2 PM, Sunday, September 30, 2018, at the Johnsonville Pentecostal Holiness Church. Interment directed by the Hemingway Chapel of McKenzie Funeral Home will be private in the Eaddy-Ford Cemetery.  
The Altman-Gates family will receive family and friends prior to the service beginning at 1 PM in the church sanctuary.    
Memorials may be made to:  Turbeville Children’s Home, 5232 W Turbeville Hwy, Turbeville, SC  29162.
