Kay Robinson

d. February 8, 2014


Kay M. Robinson, transcended from this earthly plane on Saturday, February 8, 2014 in her home. She is survived by her son, Geoffrey R. Moss, her granddaughter Madelyn G. Moss, daughter-in-law Desiree Smith Moss and other extended family. She is preceded in death by her parents Jack and Marjorie Robinson (Vollmer) and her grandmother Mary lee Schmidt.

Originally from Decatur, ILL, Kay and her family migrated to La Crosse when she was four years old. Kay attended Old Holy Cross Grade School and graduated from Aquinas High School. Throughout her life she had touched the hearts, minds and souls of so many people. Some of those individuals have said “she had the articulation of a cultured pearl and a seasoned sailor, the brilliance of a genius, the dynamism of a strong wind, the humanity of a saint, the loyalty of a friend, and the questions of a sincere mind. She will always be remembered for her passion for civil rights, common sense, debate, the downtrodden, love of family, politics, unions and women’s rights. Kay was a warrior and she’ll always be our hero.”

She assisted so many through tough times in their lives by utilizing the wisdom and compassion she acquired from her own; as shown in this quote, “Even the painful moments had a particularly energizing effect on my life – because I survived and was tougher because I had survived!”

Let’s all remember Kay through one of her favorite quotes by Dr. Seuss – “Don’t cry because things didn’t happen. Cry because things happened.” Kay was such a wonderful woman, smart, funny and fiercely loyal and we’ll all miss her terribly, forever. Goodbye from your loving son and your four legged kids.
