The Guest Book is expired.

Mary Elizabeth Robinson Helena, MT Formerly of Lansing Born November 19, 1926, moved on to her next grand adventure on January 8, 2013 after struggling with the effects of a stroke suffered in December of 2011. Mary passed peacefully with family by her side in Helena, Montana on a pleasant winter afternoon. Mary was born and raised in Lansing, Michigan, attended Lansing Eastern High School and graduated in 1944. Mary was the youngest of three children born to Lewis Judson Gregg, Esq. and Ramona Blake Gregg, and was married to Russell Robert Robinson from 1945 to 1968. Mary, her bright yellow car, her pies, her cookies, her flair, her love of food, and her zest for life, is lovingly remembered by her children, Randall Gregg Robinson (Linda) of Seattle Washington, and Bradley Alan Robinson (Susan) of Helena, Montana, her grandchildren, Christopher Gregg Robinson of Renton, Washington, Meghan, Erin, and Ally Robinson of Helena, Montana, nieces and nephews, cousins, other family, and numerous friends around the country. While Mary may well be best remembered for her humor and her baking, she will also live on in our memories for the dignity, style, and class with which she carried herself. Mary was preceded in death by her parents, her beloved sister and brother Norma Lou Gregg and Dr. Paul J. Gregg, DDS., and her former in-laws, Ernest Robinson, Delia (Robinson) Fox, Harry K. Fox, and Edith (Cox) Gregg. Mary loved singing, reading, traveling, baking, eating, and maintaining close contact with her friends and family to whom she was intensely devoted. While her dream of working for the FBI did not come to pass, she never lost her sense of professional adventure. In her time working at the Michigan Liquor Control Commission, Michigan State University Office of Admissions & Scholarships, MSU Alumni Association, and MSU Center for Environmental Toxicology, Mary touched the lives of many people with her smile, humor, baking, camaraderie, and her willingness to take on new tasks. Young at heart her entire life, Mary maintained her style, her smile, and terrific good nature until the very end. Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service on June 15th, 2013 at 4 p.m. at Gorsline Runciman Funeral Homes, 900 E. Michigan Avenue, Lansing. The family requests all donations be sent in Mary's name to the wonderful people who gave such good care for her in her time of need at the St. Peter's Hospital Foundation, 2475 Broadway, Helena, MT 59601. The family is being served by Gorsline Runciman Funeral Homes. Condolences and memories may be shared with the family at www.grlansing.com
