Margaret Robson, born 4/25/1925 in Gateshead-on-Tyne, passed away suddenly at Courtyard Gardens, Lawrenceville, GA where she resided for the past three years. Margaret married John (deceased 10/22/2010) on 7/21/1949 in Croft-on-Tees, England. Surviving children are Jillian Robson Dietz (Dennis dec. 9/18/2006), Jane Robson Duerr (Charles/Tony), Simon (Tracy Yuellig) and Peter (Jamie Pye)Robson; 6 grandchildren (Rob and Susan Duerr, Nick and Claire Dietz, Alex and Graham Robson) and 3 “greats” (Eva, Chas Duerr and Cora Trebilcock). Margaret and John immigrated to the US (Ann Arbor, MI) in 1967 after spending 16 years overseas in Tanzania, the Phillipines and Egypt. Margaret readily accepted her life with John as career choices required frequent moves. With each one, she made sure she made a home for her family, surrounding them with familiar and loved items that ensured familiarity in strange places. Margaret was known as a superb cook of international dishes as well as a fine baker and entertainer. Many of her recipes have passed on to her children and grandchildren, now integral to their lives. Margaret spent time learning to paint and draw and became an accomplished watercolorist. She mastered flower arranging, integrating eastern arranging techniques into her home. As a Brit, she loved her gardens and grew flowers that were often found arranged in her home. Both she and John loved jazz and Big Band music. Music was heard in their home from morning to evening. In 2009 she and John (Doc) moved to the Atlanta area to be closer to Simon, Tracy, Alex and Graham who cared for them with amazing diligence and patience. Doc and Margaret Robson resided at The Courtyard Gardens where they were tended to with dignity and respect to the end. A special thank you to The Courtyard friends and employees who became their extended family. A private family service took place at Simon and Tracy’s with blue skies, flowers, twittering birds and music she would approve of. A memorial service will take place later at The Courtyard Gardens.
