“A light from our household is gone. A voice we loved is still”
Suddenly and peacefully, on Monday 22nd January at home, Dot aged 86 years of Sandbach.
The beloved wife of Brian, a dear mum of Brian, Jennifer, Linda and Angela, a treasured grandma of Clifford, Brian, Janine, Charlotte, Calladin, Jade, Aimee, Emma, Nicholas and Harry and loving great grandma of Scarlet, Evie and Thomas.
Born in Lancashire in the thirties, Dot worked hard at school and would have loved to continue her studies, however the lack of opportunities meant she went straight to work in the local post office.
She met her husband Brian and married and started a family. Eventually the relocated to Sandbach where they have remained ever since.
Dot loved dogs and enjoyed long walks, though latterly she has kept cats due to her mobility. A wide variety of musical tastes, she would often travel up to Liverpool on the train so she could hear the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Her theatre trips also took her to places like Manchester as she loved musicals and the comedy of Ken Dodd.
Along with her love of music was her love of prose. Dot would often recite poetry and her children have vivid memories of some of the poems she knew by heart.
Dot was brought up as faithful christian and attended church for as long as she was able, ensuring that all her children and grandchildren were brought up in the faith she loved. She always had prayer cards in her purse, attending both the Church of England and the Roman Catholic churches locally. She liked her ‘high church’!
She adored her grandchildren who kept her young at heart and would giggle at their antics.
A stickler for doing things her way, as her arthritis got worse and others had to more for her (especially husband Brian), it would have to be to her exacting standards and was always accompanied with instructions.
An active lady throughout her life, apart from arthritis, she was as healthy as an 86 year old could be, her death came suddenly and peacefully the way she would have wanted.
She will be deeply missed by all her family and friends.
Dorothy’s funeral will take place in Crewe Crematorium Chapel on Wednesday 7th February at 1.20pm.
Sing we now softly, and dreams let us weave her!
Wind her in slumber and there let us leave her!
The wanderer sleep-eth. Now soft be her pillow!
Lullaby! Lullaby! Alder and Willow!
Sigh no more Pine, till the winds of the morn!
Hush! Hush! Oak, Ash and Thorn!
Dark is the land till dawn is at hand
Dorothy Robinson’s dawn is at hand
