Cammie Lelayne Robinson Schnautz walked into the welcoming arms of Jesus on June 18, 2022 and is pain free in a perfect new body. She passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her husband and a dear friend. Born on January 22, 1968 to Michael Wayne Robinson and Cathy Mae (Knight) Robinson in Houston, Texas, she lived a full and joyful life centered on her Savior, Jesus Christ.
Cammie is preceded in death by her grandchildren Candon and Brezlyn. She is missed by so many, including her Facebook video audience (which began with her diagnosis and the preacher’s request to video teach her Sunday school class), the children she taught at church, church members over many years and friends for decades from many walks of life, including precious friends at work. She is also survived and missed by her adored husband Danny; loving children Brittany, Kyle and Courtney Rogers of Pasadena; adoring stepdaughters Krystle (Phillip) Sanders and Julie (Tyler) Jones of Houston; stepson Michael Rogers Jr. of Austin; caring father and mother Michael and Cathy Robinson of Pasadena; Brother Michael Robinson, Jr. of Houston; and cherished grandchildren Kaiston, Travis, Mathew, Emmalynn, and Kahlen. She absolutely loved being a Gigi! She also treasured cousins from the bottom of her heart in Texas and Louisiana, who shared a great love for each other and life.
Bearing fruit for Jesus was one of Cammie’s most important life goals. She got up early every morning to pray and then study the Word of God. There was only one Cammie; you saw her kind and loving actions and she was that through and through. She had a passion for hurting women and she did so by providing meals, encouragement and more. She was a zealous servant of Jesus and prayed and ministered at the Central Baptist Church of Deer Park. As a child, Cammie was a bus kid at Austin Avenue Baptist in Pasadena and came unto the Lord there. She brought her family and many others to church and then to the saving grace of Christ in the years that followed. She then grew up to serve in the church, including singing in the choir, leading kitchen chores, teaching children’s Sunday school, and running her own children’s bus line. She had an unshakable faith and would say, “If God can create the Grand Canyon, he can do this.” She lived steadfastly Micah 6:8. She was tolerant of people and things as long as it wasn’t against God’s will. She valued right and wrong and knew more than she cared to admit because she didn’t want to be the one in the spotlight. She didn’t let anything shake her (“That’s the least of our worries”).
She was most recently employed as a Credit and Collections Manager at Clark Freight Lines, where she excelled in her work. Additionally, she brought Jesus to the workplace with encouragement, joy, service, and ministry during her 13-year tenure.
Cammie enjoyed traveling and saw much of God’s creation. She enjoyed going to women’s retreats and conferences like Beth Moore and She Speaks with friends. Cammie was an avid homemaker and loved keeping a tidy house and freshening up the decor. She took great pleasure in decorating for holidays, especially Christmas. She also had fun buying Christmas candy and hiding her favorite bag. Between her pool, plants and butterfly bushes, she always had a project going that included refinishing furniture and repainting rooms in the house. She organized events such as family reunions and birthday parties effortlessly and without stress. She cared for children and the needy. Cammie didn’t get bogged down in details or disappointments, instead paying attention to the important parts of life, which are people. She had a big heart, a big, glorious laugh, a sweet tooth, and she expanded beyond her own desires and comfort level when she could serve someone. She was beautiful and wanted to do her best in every way.
Cammie loved flowers, butterflies and lavender. In honor of Cammie, she would appreciate donations to Central Baptist Church Deer Park Missionary Work or Project Joy & Hope in Pasadena.
It’s been a tough two and a half years. But God was faithful; We saw many blessings from the Lord along the way, including incredible support from family, friends, and members of two churches. Cammie ran the race she was called to, and some of her last words were, “I did my part.” She hoped you would do your part, too. Fulfill your roles, hug those you love and enjoy the time with them. Be ready today for eternity; it may be closer than you think. John 3:16
Worship was held at Central Baptist Church on Saturday, June 25, followed by burial at Grand View Memorial Park. The arrangements were in the care of the Peevey Funeral Home.
