Mona was resilient and strong at a very young age, yet generous and kind. She always took care of herself and her family.
In fact, because of her entrepreneurial spirit and these attributes, Mona was able to buy two homes. One of which she gave to her mother.
While in Taiwan, she met her late husband and greatest love, William A. Robinson. Soon after meeting William, Mona and her family moved from Taiwan to Dover, Delaware in 1973. She became a U.S. citizen soon thereafter. Mona was a loving and supportive mother. She has 5 sons and 1 daughter.
With her husband and sons they owned and operated two successful Chinese restaurants; one in Dover and the other in Georgetown.
After Mona’s husband passed, she retired and enjoyed life with her family.

On March 9, 2020 and at the age of 82 at Christiana Hospital, she passed away with loved ones by her side and rejoined with her beloved husband and 2 sons in heaven.
