Margaret “Margie” Lynn (Allmon) Robinson, was born Oct. 6, 1957 in Los Angeles to Larry and Margaret (Boyd) Allmon.
Their first born child and the first born grandchild of Carl and Shirley Allmon and Henry and Margaret Boyd, she was joined later by five siblings.
As a child she traveled to Tangier, Morocco, and Madrid, Spain with her missionary parents. Returning to the U.S., she attended numerous schools in Southern California, graduating from Carlsbad High School in 1974.
Margie married her high school sweetheart, Terry Bruce Robinson, in 1975. She worked as a travel agent in the early part of her marriage, while Terry attended art school. Twin sons were born to them in Pasadena, Calif.
In 1990 the family moved to Mariposa. Later, their daughter was born, completing their family.
Margie worked for many years as a paraprofessional for the Mariposa County Unified School District, only recently retiring. Although she’d been struggling with some chronic conditions for the last few years, her death came suddenly on Oct. 24, 2019.
Margie loved animals, would take in strays, and had an inexplicable fondness for cows. She loved musicals, lilacs and any shade of purple. She loved nearly everyone who crossed her path and wouldn’t let you get away without a hug. She eagerly reconnected with old friends when she had the chance. She loved children, especially her own, and would do anything for them. She is deeply missed.
Margie was preceded in death by infant sons, Noah and Aaron, and her father, Larry.
She is survived by husband, Terry; son, Matt (Mandee) McElwee; son, Chris Robinson; daughter, Emmy Robinson and her fiancé, Nik Ketvirtis; and two grandchildren, Emmalynn and Jackson McElwee.
She is also survived by her mother, Margaret; sisters, Shirley ( Jay) Acheson, Libby Moon, and Laurie ( Jeff) Hidy-Watkins; brothers, Charlie (Lisa) Allmon and James Allmon; one uncle, three aunts, numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Margie’s life will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1, at Ponderosa Basin Chapel, Mariposa.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Heifer International or the charity of your choice.
