Mary E. "Libby" Robinson

Friday 19th of April 1946 - Wednesday 8th of March 2023

Mary E. "Libby" Robinson

Mary Robinson, age 76, of Lexington, passed away unexpectedly due to health complications at her home on March 8, 2023.

Mary was born in Fayette County, Kentucky on April 19, 1946, the daughter of Clovis and Ruth Robinson. She grew up in Fayette County, graduating from Lafayette High School and attending the University of Kentucky. She worked for a number of insurance companies in an administrative capacity and lived in a number of cities, making friends wherever she went.

After retiring from her last position while living in the Philadelphia area, she returned to Lexington to look after her mother, Ruth Robinson. She attended to her mom’s needs unselfishly and enjoyed visiting her at both Ashland Terrace and the Willows at Fritz Farm, often befriending other residents.

Mary was on the quiet side but friendly and cheerful. You could always count on her as a family member and friend. She rarely had a bad thing to say about anyone. She loved music and to go dancing until she suffered an injury later in life and stayed up on current events and UK sports. Family and friends will dearly miss her.

Her beloved parents, Clovis and Ruth Robinson, predeceased Mary. She is survived by her brother, David Robinson and sister-in-law, Anne Robinson of Sarasota, Florida; niece, Jessica Ruth Robinson Hauser and husband Kelley Hauser; grandniece, Rosalie Ruth Hauser, and grandnephew, Robinson Gus Hauser, all of Cohasset, Massachusetts. Her cousins, Marnia Robinson of Ashland, Oregon and Jana Carella of Jacksonville, Florida, also survive her.

The burial service for Mary will be private for family members, with a remembrance event scheduled at a future time.

I was really sorry to read of Libby's passing. Libby and I became very close friends while attending UK. Libby graduated from Lafayette a couple years before me. We shared a lot of happy times together. Libby was a bridesmaid in my wedding in 1967, and she looked absolutely beautiful. After our wedding, Libby moved to Louisville, but stayed in touch for many years. The last time I saw her was at the calling for her Dad at Milwards on Southland Drive. Libby was a really sweet girl.
