Obituary of Mary Erine Robinson

Mary Robinson - Obituary 

It is with heavy hearts and never-ending sadness that the family of Mary Erine Robinson announce her passing at the age of 85. She was born in Chatham, Ontario on March 14, 1938 to her parents, the late Annie (D’Hoop) and Darrell (Cobb) Coll. Beloved partner of George Minnie of Chatham for over 45 years. A loving mother of six children, Darrell (Christine) of Hamilton, John (2010), Chris of Midway B.C., Vic (Lisa) of Ridgetown, Randy (Judy) of Ridgetown, and Michelle (Craig) of Port Perry. She was the much loved grandmother of Jillian (Jason), Ashley (John), Tyler, Ryan, Chantelle, Randi, Samantha and Katie. She is survived by her sister Luella Lacelle of Bath, brother George Coll (Ann) of London, and sister Irma Coll of Rodney, as well as many nieces and nephews. She was given much love and comfort from her adorable furry friend Pippa. She is predeceased by her siblings Alphonse Beuckelare (Mary), Fred Coll (Emily), Edward Coll (Carol), and her sister Bernice Robinson (Carm), and great-grandson Grey Gingell.

To the very end, her family came first. She always remembered birthdays, anniversaries, and everything of importance and for this we love her so much. 

“She did it her way.“

The family would like to extend a very special and heartfelt "Thank You", to Rev. John Anderson and to the staff of the Chatham-Kent Hospice. 

In keeping with Mary’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family interment will happen at a later date.
Donations in Mary's memory to the Chatham-Kent Hospice would be greatly appreciated by the family.
