Ethel Robinson

April 10, 1911 — Feb. 2, 2012

Born 100 years ago in Littleton, Utah, Ethel Robinson peacefully passed away on Thursday, Feb. 2, 2012. A resident of Placerville, Calif., for nearly 80 years, she was born on April 10, 1911, and was one of three children. Her family moved from Utah to Gridley, Calif., when she was a young girl. After graduating from Gridley High School, Ethel, who was always hard working, decided to make a change from life in the country and moved to San Francisco. While working in San Francisco, her plans were pleasantly interrupted when she became engaged to Dean Robinson, who was getting his degree from the University of San Francisco Pharmacy School. They married in 1934. Dean and Ethel moved to Placerville to start their family and it was in Placerville that they made their home and raised their children, Gary and Janis.

Ethel was an active member of Eastern Star and the Cold Springs Golf Club in the 1960s, was an avid gardener well into her 80s and enjoyed playing bridge at the Shakespeare Club. She loved knitting sweaters for her family and also little hats and blankets for newborn babies at the local hospital. Her family and friends joined her to celebrate her 100th birthday last April and will treasure those memories forever. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and a dear friend to all.

Ethel was preceded in death by Dean in 1990 after 56 years of marriage. She is survived by her son, Gary Robinson and wife, Sandy of Placerville; her daughter, Janis Jacobs and husband, Bill of San Diego; her two granddaughters, Julie Duey of Placerville and Kelly Speer of La Jolla; and her two great-grandsons, Zachery and Joshua Duey whom she loved and adored.

A private memorial service was held on Feb. 10 at Westwood Hills Memorial Park. Friends are invited to sign the online guest book and leave a message for the family at chapelofthepinesfunerals.com.
