Marilyn Bell Robinson

Marilyn Bell Robinson passed away peacefully Friday morning, August 7, 2020, in Winchester Terrace Nursing Home. She was 88.

She was born September 4, 1931, to parents Charles & Mabel (Koppler) McQuillen in Ashland, Ohio. After Marilyn graduated from Ashland High School with the class of 1950, she married Charles Robinson on November 23, 1950, and they were married for 55 years until he passed away in August of 2006.

A wonderful homemaker, Marilyn stayed home to care for her 5 children for many years. She also was a partner with Charles in their business, Robinson Tax LLC, and was a seamstress of leather goods at Cresco, Mfg. for 7 years. In her spare time, Marilyn was an active charter member in their church, Maranatha Baptist Church in Haysville. She taught Sunday School, helped Charles with the teen groups, and taught the children’s Evangelical classes.

Marilyn enjoyed cooking and baking, especially cookies, and sewing, in particular, doll clothing for her children and grandchildren. Even though she didn’t necessarily enjoy traveling, Charles loved to, so she and Charles traveled all over the US. Visiting Montana, Maine, Missouri, and several others throughout the years.

She is survived by her 5 children Beverly (Earl) Spain of Bellville, Shirleen (Walter) Erhart of Chesterville, Larry (Sandy) Robinson of Perryville, Tom (Vicki) Robinson of Jeromesville, and Tim (Mary) Robinson of Ashland; 11 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great-grandchild; and sister-in-law’s Betty Christine, Fannie Mott; and Nancy McQuillen.
