Marcelene was born on March 1, 1925, in Lone Tree, the daughter of William and Elsie Schmitt Robinson.
She was a graduate of Muscatine High School, class of 1943, and the University of Iowa with an English major.
Marcelene taught English at a high school in Glendale, California.
She was always interested in veterans of foreign war and the paralyzed veterans. She loved theatre, was a great singer, and also loved to read, work crossword puzzles and cooking.
Those left to honor her memory include two brothers, John Robinson and wife, Susan, of Muscatine, and Harold Robinson of Mesa, Arizona; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Ardell Robinson; and one sister, Kathleen Robinson.
I am sorry to hear of the passing of Marcelene. I send you my thoughts of sympathy and to let you know that I am thinking of all of you. Marcelene and I always enjoyed being together when we could. If not in person we kept in touch by letter correspondence. I will miss my first cousin.
