Maurice Robinson

Maurice E. Robinson, 85, died June 20, 2020, at Kansas Christian Home in Newton.  He was born March 3, 1935, in Blackwell Oklahoma to Clinton M and Sarah J (Lawhead) Robinson. On Jan 11, 1969, he married J. Kay Riley in South Haven and she preceded him in death on June 19, 2005.  Maurice was a graduate of South Haven High School class of 1953. He served his country in the U.S. Army 1955-1959.

Maurice worked early on as a meat cutter in his family’s grocery store in South Haven and Whites Foodliner in Kingman before he and Kay moved to Newton beginning their service to youth working at Youthville in Newton for several years.  He was an avid gardener and folks in Newton and South Haven often stopped by for a garden tour and to see what new seeds he was starting and hybridizing.  He shared that love of gardening with his children.  Later in life, he took up wood carving and enjoyed making pieces to share with others.  He won the grand prize in the “art is ageless” contest with other elders across the state. The family was always important to Maurice and he enjoyed visits from his kids, grandkids, great-grandkids and friends that stopped by.  Being an Avid KU fan he could always be found cheering the Jayhawk Basketball team when they played.
