Robin Lindsey

Born in Missouri, Robin spent her preteen years living in Richmond and El Cerrito before moving to Ukiah. Music and drama were always of prime importance in her life and her younger years found her singing, playing piano and violin and often writing skits which she loved to act out and record on 78 records. She graduated from Ukiah High School in 1949 where she met her future husband, James Lindsey, to whom she was married for 63 years. They were both pianists and shared a love of music that lasted all their lives. With a great sense of adventure, James and Robin took their two young children to homestead in Alaska in 1963, where they lived in both Fairbanks and Valdez. Robin was an active member of her community, using her love of music to bring people together. In 1997, after 35 years in Alaska, James and Robin returned from Valdez to Boonville where they spent 20 happy years surrounded by family and friends. During the last 20 years in Boonville, she was active with the Unity Club, the local library, and the senior center. She was a life long Seventh-day Adventist, but enjoyed playing the piano for the local Methodist Church where she occasionally spoke for Sunday service.

While she is predeceased by her husband, James Lucas Lindsey, and her grandson, Jeremy Lindsey Houk, she is survived by two children, Gina Marie Lindsey and David Lindsey; a grandchild, Holly Barbacovi; and two great-grandchildren, Stella and Roman Barbacovi.
