On Thursday, Pat Robertson passed away in his house in Virginia Beach. He was married to Adelia “Dede” Robertson, who passed away. She passed away in 2022 at the age of 94. Her demise was announced in an obituary on the network’s website.

Who was Dede Robertson?

Dede Robertson was a founding member of the Christian Broadcasting Network and the wife of televangelist Pat Robertson. While attending Yale University, she met him. Despite neither family’s wishes, they were married by a justice of the peace 18 months after they first met. In 1988, Pat ran for the Republican nomination for president, supported by his wife Dede.

The late Pat Robertson said of Dede Robertson, “Dede Robertson was a woman of great faith, a champion of the Gospel, and a remarkable servant of Christ who has left an indelible print on all that she set her hand to during her extraordinary life.”

On December 3, 1927, Adelia Elmer was born in Columbus, Ohio. She earned a bachelor’s degree in social administration from Ohio State University and a master’s degree in nursing from Yale.

After they were married, Pat said that God had told him to sell everything and help the poor, so they moved into a commune in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant district. When Dede admitted that she had been tempted to go back to Ohio, she said, “but I realized that was not what the Lord would have me do.”

Dede was chosen as the head representative of the Inter-American Commission of Women, which was established in 1928 to advance the recognition of women’s rights throughout Latin America. Until 1990, she held the job. She also served on the board of Regent University, which her husband established in Virginia Beach.

In addition to their two daughters, Elizabeth Robinson and Ann LeBlanc, two sons, Gordon and Timothy, 14 grandchildren, and 23 great-grandchildren, Pat and Dede Robertson are still alive.
