Fleshman Robson, Betty Lou,

86, surrounded by loving members of her family, passed away on Friday, October 6, 2017, due to complications with COPD. She was born in Mauckport, IN, on September 13, 1931, to Herman and Ruth Fleshman. Betty graduated with a B.S. in education from the University of Louisville and a M.S. in education from Indiana University. She was an avid supporter of the athletic programs in both schools. Upon graduation, Betty began her teaching career with the New Albany-Floyd County School Corp., where she taught third grade for 33 years. She is preceded in death by her late husband of 61 years, Charles (Doug) Robson; her parents, Herman and Ruth Fleshman; one sister, Arlene Bland; and in-laws, Tom and Georgia Robson. Survivors are her two children, Cindy Marcus (Joe) of Lilburn, Ga., and Douglas Robson (Kathy) of Corydon, Ind.; and two grandchildren, Zachary Robson of Stuart, Fla., and Kathryn Robson of Indianapolis, IN. For several years, Betty has resided in both Corydon and Englewood, FL, where she has many family and friends who will miss her deeply. She will be remembered for her love of reading, support of Indiana University men's basketball, working puzzles and an enjoyment of watching a beautiful sunrise and sunset over the Manasota Bay in Florida. A celebration of life will be held at Gehlbach & Royse Funeral Home in Corydon. Visitation will be on October 14, 2017, at 3 p.m. with a memorial service beginning at 4 pm. Following the service, those attending are invited to join the family for a reception at the Old Capital Golf Club in Corydon.
