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.

 

Condolences

  • It was my pleasure to meet the Robinson family and found them to be a blessing to all. My condolences.

    The Robinson house on Palm Lane was my second home and Minnie Jo, my best friend, during my growing up years. Flossie and Sam were always so kind to me. I can’t think of my childhood without the Robinsons in it. She leaves a wonderful legacy.

  • Flossie was my mothers good friend. As such I was loved by Flossie and granted a smile and guiding hand….and gum from her purse. She is a dear woman whose name is honored in my family.

  • I am a Maloy and Flossie had such a lasting impression on our family. Growing up she and my mom, Colleen, wonderfully served with their musical talents in the Ward. They were such good friends as I’m sure she was friends with everyone. From time-to-time she would baby sit my younger siblings as we older kids were at school and Mom was taking organ lessons. Flossie was also known to cut my hair a few times (and even gave me a perm – my mom was thrilled. I wasn’t) and I’m sure she was the one who would cut my mom’s hair. Gum in her purse? You bet. Flossie always had a smile on her face and was so kind to our family. Gentle and gracious. She truly was an elect lady and she is loved and respected in our family. What a long and wonderful life she had.

  • We knew some of Flossie’s descendants who carry on her legacy. They are a great family!
