Elgie Mariam Moss Robinson, 93, our loving mother and grandmother, was reunited with her eternal companion on Saturday, Nov. 19, 2005.
Elgie and her twin brother, Elmer, were born on Oct. 17, 1912, to Abel Alexander Moss and Annie Lunett Jones in Mercur, Tooele County, Utah. She married Clayton Heber Robinson on June 4, 1936 in the Logan LDS Temple. She spent her youth in Woodruff, Utah. During the summer months they lived at the Deseret Land and Livestock, where she helped her mother cook for the hay crew. In the winters they lived in town to be closer to school, where she helped her father, the janitor, at the school. It was there she met Clayton who was beginning his teaching career as principal of the Woodruff School.
Elgie spent her life serving others and supporting her husband in his responsibilities in the Rich County School District and the community. Her greatest loves were cooking, sewing and quilting for her family and others. She enjoyed visitors and company and always wanted to feed everyone. She loved the people of Laketown, summer friends, and had a special spot in her heart for nieces and nephews.
Elgie was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served as the Laketown Ward Relief Society president, MIA president, primary president and in many other teaching positions. Elgie and Clayton spent many years as guides at the Paris Idaho Stake Tabernacle and also in the Name Extraction Program in Montpelier, Idaho.
Elgie is survived by her four children, C.H. and Phyllis Robinson of Herriman, Utah; Marian and Charles Ashcraft of North Carolina; Duane and Peggy Robinson of Laketown; Eldon and Jan Robinson of Laketown. Her husband, Clayton Robinson; son, John Robinson; and great-granddaughter, Jaymie Beatty preceded her in death. She has 22 grandchildren and 41 great-grandchildren.
The family would like to express deepest thanks to Bear Lake Home Health and Alpine Hospice for the loving, compassionate care that Mother received. We also want to thank Matthews Mortuary in Montpelier, Idaho, for helping the family with funeral arrangements. We love you and will miss you Mother!
Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 25, at the Laketown Ward chapel. A viewing will precede the service from 10:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. The interment will be in the Laketown Cemetery. In lieu of flowers the family has asked that you enjoy special activities with your family and friends or donate to your favorite charity.
