Virgina Robinson had a big influence on me as my Syklark leader and at Gracland. She taught me many things in Skylarks with her knowledge, wonderful personality and beautiful smile. So many great memories. She will always be in my heart.

Virginia always greeted the Spectacular staff and campers with a smile and wonderful greeting. That is where I first met her many years ago.
It was a special blessing to see her in the Colorado Springs congregation when Larry and I moved there 13+ years ago. She always was a gift of joy. I know she had difficulty hearing some of the time. And she would wave to the pulpit to remind me to get closer to the mike! Always with a smile!
May your grief and loss be blessed with wonderful memories and stories with the Comforters arms around you. Peace.

Virginia was such a sweet lady, always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. Virginia and I enjoyed discussing blue lake green beans ( they really are the best) and the best apples for homemade applesauce. Rest in peace my friend!❤️🙏

“Bev’s Mom” was such a neat lady! I grew up hanging out at her house and also having her as my Skylark leader. So many wonderful memories; hiking through Nine Eagles State Park, learning to fry an egg on a converted coffee tin over a campfire, sleepovers at the big church, and on and on. And she never tired of Bev and I asking her endless questions! I always thought she had such an elegance to her even during the hot summers when she lived on a farm. She was beautiful inside and out and I don’t ever remember her without a huge smile on her face and a mischievous twinkle in her eye. The world lost one of its best but I know she was ready to be reunited with Rex and all her loved ones.

I remember Ginny from my earliest childhood. She and my mom were friends and the Robinson family lived a couple of houses away from me when I was growing up. She was a Skylark leader and my memory of her will always be her big smile and laughter. Such a ray of sunshine

I loved Virginia very much, I met her through Marilyn, and got the privilege to take care of her for 5 years, our friendship grew and we enjoyed visiting and bird watching. My grandchildren were very fond of her. I will miss her greatly. Tracy Allgood

Virginia was a bright light with a warm tender soul and the sweet sense of humor! I enjoyed spending time with her all the years she volunteered in the Kreative Kinder Preschool program. Thank you for sharing your bright light and love with all! Prayers and blessings to all the family. 🙏❤️

We got to know Nin and Rex when they visited the kids. Nin was such a delight! I could have visited with her for hours. We always knew when she called David because he would smile big and say, in a voice reserved only for Nin, hello grandma. She was very loved by David, Amy and their family. She will be missed by many because she touched so many lives with her compassion and love. Our condolences to Big D and the rest of the family. To Nin I would say Bless you! You finally made it home.

I had such a pleasure getting to know Virginia. Her and I became very close as I was her care taker until she got to go home. 🥰😍 i will never forget when I told her I was pregnant she did the highest pitched squeal because she was so happy. And then again after I told her the baby was a boy after FOUR girls! She was so happy! I miss those squeals so much!!
