April 3, 1925 - May 23, 2021
Mary Virginia Robinson (known to most as Virginia), 96, of Kalkaska, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, on Sunday, May 23, 2021, at her home in Kalkaska. She was born April 3, 1925 in Tyrone Township (near Hartland, Michigan), the daughter of Elvin and Pauline Trollman. She graduated from Hartland High School in 1943 and then went on to work in a supporting role during WWII and also at General Motors in Milford, before becoming a full-time stay-at-home mom. Following the war Virginia married her long-time neighbor/classmate/sweetheart, Harold Robinson, in 1946, and together they raised 6 children and celebrated over 50 years of marriage before Harold's passing in 1997. In 1971 the family moved from Brighton, Michigan to Kalkaska where she served as the guiding force for so many memorable family get-togethers and holidays, including her favorite… July 4th.. Her family was her focus and she was the anchor for them all. She had a great love of her family and friends and will be greatly missed by them. She enjoyed spending time working outside, bird watching, tending to her beautiful gardens, picking berries with her family, watching the Tigers and golf and Jeopardy or dancing to Lawrence Welk/ big band music, and playing competitive board games -- where she was most often the winner, especially in Scrabble! Virginia is survived by her children and members of their families, including Sherry Luttermoser, of Grand Rapids, Kathy (Dan) Wolf of Greenville, Mary (Jeff) Bryant of Kalkaska, Chris (Tom) Wolfe of Kalkaska, Al (Sarah) Robinson of Mt. Pleasant, Mike (Rhonda) Robinson of Kalkaska, many grandchildren, many great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild. Also surviving are nieces, nephews, cousins, brother-in-law Jim Martin of Fenton, brother-in-law Paul Robinson of So. Dakota, many kind neighbors, and special friend Hazel Alberts. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Harold, her sister Sally Martin, and son-in-law Ken Luttermoser. Funeral services will be held at St. Mary of the Woods Catholic Church in Kalkaska on Saturday, June 26, at 11:00 a.m. Burial service will be held later in the summer in Evergreen Cemetery, Kalkaska, with a private family service.
