Flossie began life as the fourth child of Oscar Emmanuel Bluth and Lucy Lavinia MacDonald. Five more would follow to her home in a remote farming colony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where self-reliance and practicality were daily lessons, along with home and outdoor chores, music lessons and sports. A pattern of service to her family and community was set early by her legendary mother, Lucy Mac, which she emulated as an adult. Flossie was raised in a lively home where birth and death were natural events in the course of life. She assisted in midwifery, even funeral preparations in all the practical services her mother rendered to her community. A tomboy early, she rarely missed a game, activity of any musical nature, and built close friendships attending The Juarez Academy.
Surviving two World Wars and The Great Depression, Flossie married Samuel Jerald Robinson on September 6, 1936, another Colonial resident, and emigrated to Arizona for a new life in 1936. Their own family of four children followed, who in turn fostered seventeen grandchildren, forty-two great grandchildren and six great-great children. The legacy of devotion to family, faith, discipline and hard work has been reflected in the lives of those she served. As an adult living in Phoenix, Flossie was destined to care for three generations over fifty years of nursing, feeding and blessing the lives of both parents, a widowed health-challenged daughter and the family she left behind. She accepted these natural events with joy and strength, without complaint and fed all who came to her door. The lessons of her mother endured, as her own contributions mirrored the life of the woman many have revered.
