September 7, 1940 ~ January 10, 2024 (age 83) 83 Years Old


The beautiful life of Peggy Jane Robinson in her own words:

I was born early Saturday morning, September 7, 1940, to Geraldine Nance and Arnold Gunther.  I have fond memories of growing up in Armourdale, Kansas, nurtured by grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles, surrounded by cousins and playmates.  It was a simple life without electronics or access to cars, but with tire swings and rides with my grandpa on his horse and wagons, homemade softballs, tree climbing, hopscotch, hide and seek, etc.  What a great life.

In 1951, my family moved to Wyandotte County, Kansas after the flood.  My childhood community scattered, but we kept in touch. I attended KCK schools and graduated from Sumner High in 1958.  While in high school, I assumed the surname of my stepfather, Albert A. Williams, who loved me as his own from early childhood.  I enjoyed school, and I love my alma mater, though the name has been changed.  The faculty taught me well and instilled in me a sense of worth and responsibility and the desire to achieve.  In 1961, I received a diploma as a registered nurse from St. Margaret Hospital School of Nursing.  In that same year, I was joined in matrimony to Grover Robinson, Jr.  To that union were born three wonderful daughters.

In 1975, I graduated as a nurse anesthetist from KC General Hospital (now Truman Medical Center).  After practicing nursing and anesthesia for 50 years, I retired in 2011. I spent my adult years raising my children, working with my church family, and enjoying all my family, friends and coworkers.  During my life, I traveled extensively, abroad and in the United States.  I always came to the same conclusion: “There’s no place like home.”

I thank God for my life, for all his blessings, for being there always, especially in my darkest hours but most of all for my savior, Jesus Christ, for what I could never earn and am not worthy of: his grace and mercy. I leave to celebrate my homegoing: my husband, Grover Robinson, my children, Nichole Robinson Bilal (Karris), Krista Robinson-Lyles (Henry), and Regina Robinson; three sisters, Carole Kelly (Delbert), Phyliss Smith and Judith Sims, and one brother, Patrick Williams; 5 grandchildren, one aunt, Sherrel Lynch, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.  One brother, Steven Williams, preceded me in death.

Peggy has asked for donations to the following charities instead of flowers for her memorial service: Doctors Without Borders, St. Jude’s or Salvation Army.
