Lois A. Robinson

of Port Orchard

Aug. 25, 1925

to May 18, 2009

Lois A. Robinson passed away on May 18, 2009 after a lengthy illness. Beloved mother, sister and friend, she was born to Leo and May Malloy on Aug 25, 1925 in Olympia, WA.

Lois worked as a truck driver during the Second World War, owned and operated a flower shop in Tacoma, a waitress and worked at Washington Steel. She was attentive to her parents and focused her efforts and resources on raising her family.

Surviving are children Walter Finklein (Mechelle), Terry Finklein (Chris), Betty Buckius (Andy) & Bernice Matthews (Matt); sisters Dorothy Murray (Jerry) & Maureen Reardon; numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Jean Murray & Leona Malloy, brothers Alfred & Bernard Malloy, daughter Deloris Babbitt, granddaughter Dianne Finklein, grandson T.J. Mitchell, and her beloved husband, Lee Robinson.

Lois always made room for anyone in need. Her love of poetry led to many compositions. Her beautiful voice brightened the days with songs and joy. She was committed and caring. Her passive nature belied her ability to argue her views and command respect. Her fierce battle with health issues during the last year of her life was a testament to never giving up.

A memorial will be held starting at 1 p.m. on May 30th at the Parkwood Community Club, 3045 Madrona Dr SE, Port Orchard, WA 98366. Interment will be at New Tacoma Cemetery in Tacoma, WA. Donations in lieu of flowers to the Dianne Finklein Memorial Scholarship Fund, C/O OSU Foundation, 850 SW 35th St, Corvallis, OR 97333
