VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com): A family is devastated after losing 7-year-old Izabela Rose Robinson to an I-210 traffic collision Saturday afternoon. Izabela and her mother, Lisa Leonard were planning a fun-filled mother and daughter day at Griffith Park Observatory. Izabella grabbed her tooth fairy money and dashed out the door of their Victorville home with excitement about their special day.
Only one day prior to that, Lisa and Izabela had Friday night “Mommy dinner date” where they enjoyed time playing, taking silly pictures, and drinking ice cream floats. “She made sure I was having as much fun as she was. She never let my hand go,” said Lisa, in a Facebook post.
The two never made it to their Saturday Mommy daughter day destination. On Saturday at around 1:00 p.m. while on the 210 freeway, just east of Milliken Avenue there was a collision that severely injured Izabela. She was rushed to Loma Linda University Medical Center where she succumbed to her injuries.
Izabela was born on December 20, 2008, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Apple Valley to her mother Lisa and her father, Joshua Robinson. Lisa said that Izabella loved animals, and loved playing with rolly pollies. “She also loved playing dress-up and with her stuffed animals that she called stuffies,” said Lisa. “She loved to sing and tell jokes that were beyond her years that would make me laugh until I had tears. She would talk to anyone who would listen and would always start her conversations with a complement.”
The Irwin Academy 1st grader told her mother that she wanted to be a singer and teacher when she grew up. Izabela now leaves behind her mother, father, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. Lisa said that although Izabela did not have any siblings, she was very close to her 8-year-old cousins Jayden and Keven and her 1-year-old cousin Jordyn. She also is leaving behind her “Honey and Papa” as she called her maternal grandparents Robert and Evette Leonard and “Nani and Papi” her paternal grandparents Susan and Manny Perez as well as Grandpa Dave.
“Talking about her memory is what is helping get through this. I’m still in shock and I don’t know how I’m supposed to go on without the only thing I lived for,” said Lisa. “She was my world and she was so beautiful and her spirit made her breathtaking.”
The family of Lisa has set up a go fund me account to assist in the costs associated with the sudden loss of Izabela.
