Robbie Mae Holsomback Fields

Robbie Mae Holsomback Fields, 95, of Calhoun, Georgia, and former Dalton resident, went to

sleep in the arms of her Lord Jesus Christ, May 31, 2022, peacefully in her home.


Robbie was born September 26, 1926, in Sugar Valley, daughter to the late Robert E. Holsomback

and Hattie Mae Holcomb Holsomback. In her younger years she grew up in Sugar Valley and

attended Sugar Valley Baptist Church. When remembering about those early years she would

mention that she was baptized in Snake Creek which was near the old church. Robbie had fond

memories of her family attending the Sugar Valley Baptist Church and will be remembered for her

efforts with the group organized to save and preserve the historical original Sugar Valley Baptist

Church building which now sits next to the Sugar Valley Cemetery.


When she was older her family moved to Calhoun where she graduated from Calhoun High

School. Robbie talked often about her father and mother, spending time with relatives, and

riding her horses. Robbie was a wonderful mother and once her children began their education,

she began working in various administration roles for Whitfield County Schools and later Dalton

Schools. She had a passion for children and worked hard to ensure they had what they needed to

attend school. She was a member of the Antioch Baptist Church in Calhoun, and it has been

delightful to hear the many nice things that have been remembered about her.


Robbie excelled in many things including sewing clothes, curtains, and quilts. She enjoyed

embroidery and she successfully developed a helpful hand embroidery device and received a U.S.

Patent. She then spent her time focused on her small business selling this device as part of an

embroidery kit. In her later years Robbie always loved to have visitors. She enjoyed listening to Gospel and

Country Western music.


Survivors include her son Don Edward Fields and wife Lori, daughters Marilyn Fields Miller and

husband Philip, Jamie Fields Larkin and husband John, her brother Sam Holsomback, and

grandchildren Traci Fields (Burnsed), Mark Fields, Candas Fields (Yocum), Joe, James, and Robbie

Miller (Williams), Beth Larkin (Hays) and Mary Larkin, and 11 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, baby Janice, her brother Donald Holsomback, and

grandson Kelly Fields.


Funeral services will be conducted Saturday June 4th at 1pm from the Historic Sugar Valley Baptist Church, with Minister Randy Muse officiating. Burial will follow in the Sugar Valley Baptist Cemetery.


The family will receive friends on Saturday from 12 noon until the funeral hour at the Historic Sugar Valley Baptist Church.
