Marcia Ellen Robinson (September 3, 1946 – March 6, 2023)


Marcia Ellen Robinson died at home in Philadelphia on March 6, 2023, following a long battle with cancer. The daughter of the late Katherine Walls and Harry Simon, Marcia graduated from Oxford Area High School and worked in many positions, including Video Source in Cochranville, Star Roses in Jennersville, and Outback Trading Company in Oxford. 

Marcia and her husband Gene A. Robinson, Jr. began dating in high school, married in 1965, and were together for more than 50 years until his death in 2021.  Marcia was a committed lifelong member of Shiloh Presbyterian Church, singing in the choir, helping out at dinners, and volunteering in the community until declining health rendered that impossible.  She and Gene moved to Delaware in 2013 and to Philadelphia in 2015 so they could be closer to family and health care providers. 


Marcia is predeceased by her parents Katherine Walls and Harry Simon, and brothers Richard Simon of Arizona and Harry Douglas Simon of Oxford.  She is survived by three children:  daughter Suzanne Burgess (Ephony); son Christopher Robinson (Lynne); son Timothy Robinson (Teddie Gwynn); grandchildren David Alexander Burgess, Olivia Burgess, and Jada Q. Burman (Lloyd); great-grandchild Lloyd K. Springer, Jr.; and sister Connie Simon of California.  She is also survived by six brothers- and three sisters-in-law: Jacqueline Sharpe of Kennett Square; Monroe Robinson of West Grove; Cyrus Robinson (Jeanette) of Delaware;  Rowena Robinson of West Grove; Kevin Robinson (Linda) of Delaware; Moiscell Robinson of Lincoln University; Lakeeta Waters (Ernie) of Coatesville; Todd Robinson (Tamara) of Coatesville; Troy Robinson of Oxford; along with several, nieces, nephews, cousins and many, many friends.
