Emma Maude Heaslip was the first of seven children born to William Heaslip and his wife, Mary Jane LeGear White, both of Canada. Known as "Maude," the eldest Heaslip child was born in Seeley's Bay, Leeds County, Ontario, Canada. Her father was a bee keeper, tinsmith, butcher and talented musician, tuning pianos, singing in choirs and playing his violin late into the night for family and friends. He taught Maude to play the violin, which served her well while a member of the Salvation Army. Siblings included Cecil Garfield Heaslip, Lottie Heaslip Fox Wilmore, Olive Heaslip, William Heaslip and George Percival "Percy" Heaslip.

In 1920, Maude married a young minister named Ernest E. Robinson. While he attended school and was ordained into the Methodist Church, she stayed in Seeley's Bay, where her first child was born. Subsequently, the family moved to Detroit, Michigan and the couple added three more children to the family, including Ernest E. "Junior," Reginald Roy "Red", and Barbara Jean Robinson.

As a minister's wife and young mother, Maude had her hands full as she moved from Michigan town to town, serving the Methodist Church. Maude was a sweet, caring and giving woman. Her children agreed, however, that she was not the best of cooks! She was a talented quilter, knitter and crocheter. She made jewelry, collected salt and pepper shakers of all sorts, as well as antique porcelain pieces. She collected old coins, both American and Canadian. She made wonderful stockings for her grandchildren at Christmas, filling them with oranges from Florida, shells from the beach and delicious trinkets. She was the family genealogist, keeping notes of people and days long since passed.

She died in 1979 in Detroit, Michigan.

May her sweet soul be blessed and happy always and may God reward her for all her good deeds while here on Earth.
