  • I loved her the moment I met her! She was warm, loving, and welcomed me into her extended family as if I was her own. She lived a long, full life. May she Rest In Peace.

  • Wow, to live to be over 100…
    Must have been that whole fresh milk…the butter…farm fresh eggs…and all that love in that family!
    We all enjoyed her humor and stories of life.
    She loved the music and was awful fond of the dances John took her too. Boy did she inspect those eggs everyday for quality and liked questioning her son, if he was treating those chickens good.
    What a kind beautiful soul. We were blessed to have spent precious time with.
    Appreciate each other everyday.
    So sorry for the lose of Lillian.

  • So sorry to hear of your loss. When my late husband and I moved back to Ohio back to the farm. We would go there for eggs and the best sweetcorn around. My husband Gene would tell stories of him and Bob playing together as kids and fellow farmers. Gene wanted to invite them to our home to reminisce. It never happened because Gene was sick and never had the pleasure to get it done before he was gone. He loved Mrs Robinson and always spoke well of her and her loving family. I remember her sitting in the garage as we came for eggs and loved talking to her. I could of listened to her all day. So genuine, and truly a loving person. Jane also has those qualities and love talking to her when I pick up the eggs. Mrs. Robinson was so proud of her family. Everyone working the farm has been nice to work with which attributes back to her. Rest in peace little lady.

  • Our deepest sympathy to the family sure will miss her when we come to get corn she was a great lady hope you rest in peace.

  • So sorry, we lost a special lady. She always treated us like family. Sorry we can’t be there to support the family. Know we love all of you and will surely miss this wonderful friend.

  • My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. I enjoyed the many conversations Lillian and I had when I use to do her hair, and so many times she would bring me corn or eggs. She had a big heart. She definitely had the gift to talk. I’m sure she will be missed by her family. RIP sweet lady.
