Robbie was born January 13, 1934 in Hillsboro to Vernon McCain and Josephine (Gray) Bearden. Robbie was a faithful and devoted member of Grace Temple Baptist Church for many years. She loved reading the Bible, learning about military history / going to military museums and enjoyed a wide variety of music. In her early years she sang a few times on some specialty television shows while contemplating a singing career.
