Adelia met Mr. Robertson while earning her nursing degree at Yale, the beginning of a lifetime together building a family, a network, and a campaign for President of the United States. In fact, when her husband was running for president in the late 80s, she traveled to 52 cities to gather support from American voters across the country for her better half. She also did a tremendous amount of traveling to spread the word of the CBN ministry around the globe and participate in many humanitarian efforts the world over.
While standing by his side during his bid and throughout the success of CBN, Dede Robertson had many accomplishments in her own right. She was not only a mother, wife, and nurse but also a successful author, interior decorator, US delegate, and a positive role model for her family.
Her husband stated in her obituary that she was a “woman of great faith” who led an “extraordinary life.”
