Donna Lynn Robinson


Donna Lynn Robinson, 72, passed away on Monday, Jan. 23, 2023, at a local hospital.

She was a loving mother and an adoring grandmother and was a member of St. Therese Catholic Church. She retired from Smith Management, affiliated with the McDonald’s Corporation, after working with them for over 40 years. She loved dogs and enjoyed scrapbooking. She always liked to learn new things and challenge her family with her new knowledge, but nothing made her happier than spending time with her grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, John Robinson; her son, Todd Robinson; and her parents, Frank and Harriet Neumann.

She is survived by two children, Shannon Johnson (Barry) and Brianne Payne (Joey); six grandchildren, Ireland Robinson, Alexander Johnson, Cameron Johnson, Nicolas Johnson, Madison Johnson and Addison Robinson.

A Celebration of Her Life will be conducted at 1 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 27, 2023, at St. Therese Church with Father Michael Nolan officiating.

Interment will follow in Sunset Memorial Gardens with Barry Johnson II, Barry Johnson, Josh Cabrera, Joey Payne, Connor Payne, Doug Jourvel and Serenity McGlade serving as pallbearers. A white dove release ceremony and the playing of bagpipes will conclude the service.

The family will receive friends from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday at the church prior to the service.

We invite you to send a message of condolence and view the Robinson family guestbook at

Ralph Buckner Funeral Home and Crematory is in charge of arrangements.
