Robin Morgan was born July 17, 1951 and died March 19, 2010.
Robin had often said that she did not want to be a picture on the wall that is put up in memoriam of her life. Not to worry; the memories of her amazing life are securely saved in our minds. We see Robin in her children and grandchild. They share mannerisms, physical attributes or creativity that are clearly a part of Robin's legacy. We see Robin in the things that she has created. Examples of her artwork and decorative painting can be seen throughout the town of Southern Pines and the village of Pinehurst. We see Robin’s influence on our own behavior, and our bad habits that she so tirelessly and patiently worked on. We will continue to see Robin’s influence on her friends by the stories that they tell and the memories that they share of her. We will be reminded of Robin whenever we see a free spirit with the urge for doing, exploring, climbing, sewing, painting, befriending, nurturing, caring and defending. We will carry on by celebrating all that Robin has touched, influenced and created.
Her courageous and inspiring 11-year battle with cancer is over. Not accepting defeat nor poor prognosis, she tirelessly and steadfastly acted as her own advocate, extending her life long enough to see the marriages of her two sons and the second birthday of her grandson.
Robin is survived by her husband, Alan; her sons, Brock and Garrett; her daughters-in-law, Jessica Privler and Heather Morgan; her sisters, Carol Rusch and Liz Andrews; her father and stepmother, Donald and Philamena McLean; and her grandson, Béla. She is also remembered by countless friends.
Cremation will take place at Boles Funeral Home in Southern Pines. A celebration of her life/open house is planned at her home Saturday, March 27, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. All who have known Robin are welcome to attend. There will be a musical tribute to Robin at 5 p.m.
