Mary Alice was the mother of my best friend in high school, Carolyn Robinson Allen. I have so many fond memories of Mary Alice - or Mrs. Robinson, as I called her. One thing that stands out is how she always looked put together. Her hair was always styled and she would wear a nice outfit - even if she was just staying at home keeping us teenagers out of trouble! She opened her home to me more times than I can count. She and Mr. Robinson even let me tag along on family trips and vacations. I will always be grateful for her kindness and hospitality.
As the matriarch of three generations, Mary Alice's passing leaves a great void. It is my prayer that the treasured memories of her will be a source of comfort for the family. And may they experience God's presence as He wraps His arms around them and provides strength for the days ahead.
With my deepest sympathy,
