Obituary for Elizabeth Hall
Elizabeth (“Betty”) Robinson Hall, age 86, of Stuart, Florida, passed away on September 4, 2017, at home peacefully with the assistance of her caregivers and hospice. Betty was born on December 22, 1930 in Kewanee, Illinois, the daughter of Theodore Underwood and Grace Kirman Underwood. She is survived by her son, Dr. John R. Robinson, Jr. (Donna), of Stuart, Florida, her daughter, Jennifer J. Robinson of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and her two grandchildren (who were the light of her life), John R. Robinson, III, and Stephanie R. Robinson of Stuart, Florida. She was also survived by her sisters, Lucy Dunbar of Bloomington, Illinois and Dorothy Gray of Saginaw, Michigan as well as numerous nieces and nephews that were very important and special to her. Betty was preceded in death by her first husband, Dr. John R. Robinson, her second husband, Edward W. Hall whom she married years after Dr. Robinson passed, her sister, Phyllis M. Hamilton of Normal, Illinois (Marvin), and her infant sister, Doris.
Betty graduated from Wethersfield High School in Kewanee and then worked for the Illinois Power Company until she decided to go to airline school. After graduating from airline school Betty worked for Chicago and Southern Airline (“C & S”) and was stationed in Memphis, TN. A few years later C & S was bought out by Delta Airlines. Betty worked for Delta Airlines as a flight attendant and traveled the world until she married Dr. John R. Robinson in 1960. Betty then became a stay at home mother for her two children in Palm Beach, Florida. They also lived in Jupiter, Florida. Betty was a fabulous mother. She was active in the Junior League of Palm Beach and other charitable organizations. Betty was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She moved to the Conquistador subdivision in Stuart in 2011 and became an active member in the Conquistador family. She was loved and respected by her family and all of her friends. Betty was a people person and could strike up a conversation while waiting in line to pay at any store. She had a gift for making everyone feel comfortable and wanted. Her smiling and happy face and her warm and friendly manner will be missed by all.
The family would like to give special thanks to the wonderful care manager, Janice Healy, of Help from the Heart, and the fabulous caregivers that took such good care of her and well as others who helped Betty for the last several years of her life, namely Cheryl Mott, Ann Johnson, Kerline Whyte-Mighty, Audrey McLean, Lina Mauge, Alana Olsen, and Ann Sergent. The family would also like to thank all of the nurses and doctors who cared for Betty and the staff at Martin Memorial Hospital. The team that worked with Betty over the years not only extended her life but made her life much more comfortable and happy.
At Betty's request, there will not be a service in Stuart, Florida. Her cremains will be buried in her family’s plot in Kewanee, Illinois at a small graveside service at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Treasure Coast Hospice.
