She loved reading, working puzzles, fishing, and tending
to her African Violets. Doris was sincere, kind, patient,
witty, and loving. She is remembered for knowing the
names of every niece, nephew, and every distant cousin
and their spouses. She loved collecting family memories
in her scrapbook and in picture frames.

Robinson; and her parents.
Left to cherish her memory is: Her son, Jon Christopher
Robinson; a sister, Marguerite Newsom and
husband Bobby; three brothers and their wives – Roy

live on in all of us.
