Statesboro, Georgia Tessa Elizabeth Robbins Cassedy, age 50, died Thursday, October 14, 2021 at St. Joseph’s / Candler Hospital in Savannah. Tessa was the daughter of Jerry and Hilda Powell Robbins.

She attended Georgia Southern University, where she became a member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, and East Georgia College before earning her degree at Ogeechee Technical College as a Cosmetologist in 1996. Tessa worked at J C Penney’s hair salon before deciding to stay home with her children. A devoted member of Middleground Primitive Baptist Church, Tessa taught Sunday School, created the church bulletins, was on the flower committee, decorated for every occasion, and cooked amazing dishes for all church dinners. If there was an opportunity to cook a meal for someone, even the Hunting Club, she never hesitated. Her hobbies included crocheting, making arts and crafts, reading the Bible and writing spiritual devotionals.
