Helen Fay Robinson

January 28, 1933 ~ September 12, 2020 (age 87)


Helen Fay Robinson, 87, a resident most of her life in North Liberty, IN, and later moving to South Bend, IN, passed away peacefully at 1:15 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020 at Memorial Hospital of South Bend surrounded by loved ones.   She was born January 28, 1933 in Mount Sterling, Kentucky, a daughter of the late William M. & Lydia (Rudder) Clark, and lived in Kentucky until she was 7 years old. She then lived in Ohio for about 7 years, and then moved to South Bend where she has remained until meeting her husband and moving with him to North Liberty, IN.   On March 4, 1959 at Calvary Temple Church in South Bend, Helen was united in marriage to William Dean Robinson.  Together, they enjoyed 49 years of marriage until his passing on August 21, 2008.  She was preceded in death by seven siblings.  

Helen worked for 25 years at a church as a Financial Secretary, and retired in 1994.  She attended Calvary Temple, Beaver Creek (No. Liberty) and Maple Grove United Methodist Church over the years, and cherished the friendships she had with many from church.  Most of all, she loved being with her family. She and Bill had two girls, Kathy (Rick) Campoli and Lynn (Jeff) Stratford. She had eight grandchildren; Brittany (Campoli) VanArsdale (Tyler); Julia (Campoli) Biek (Samuel); Olivia Campoli; and Sydney, Landon, Riley, Jessica, and Joshua Stratford; and one great grandchild, Clara VanArsdale. 

Helen was a Godly woman and was always an example to her children of what Christ’s love and compassion would look like here on earth. She loved nothing more than spending time with her children and had a wonderful zest for life, traveling and getting together with friends. She had a knack for whomever she met, they loved and cherished her relationship. She and Bill had a lifetime friendship with their best friends, Helen and Rick Gerber of Nappanee, IN, which they treasured until their deaths.
