Helen Robinson

November 30, 1920 — July 17, 2014

Helen F. Robinson, 92, of Boulder passed away on July 17, 2014. Born in Newark, New York, to Jerry R. Fowler and Catherine (Updike) Fowler, Helen grew up in the Finger Lakes region of New York. She married her high school sweetheart, James Robinson, on March 8, 1941. Jim passed away in 2011 shortly after they celebrated a joyous 70th wedding anniversary. Helen attended Rio Hondo College in Whittier, CA and taught preschool. Her greatest pleasure came from creating a loving home for her family and participating in her two daughters' activities. Her devotion to friends and family was evident throughout her life. She was a wonderful hostess and loved entertaining guests. Helen enjoyed gardening, ham radio, family camping, sewing, quilting, and cake decorating. Helen was active at First Presbyterian Church for 40 years and served as a Deacon. She and Jim traveled around the country in their RV working on various mission projects. Over the years, Helen and Jim resided in several states including New York, California, and Colorado often living in homes that they built themselves. They moved to Boulder in 1974. Helen is survived by two daughters: Linda Hackathorn (Richard) of Boulder, and Karen Johnson (Phil) of Lakebay, Washington. She leaves six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
