Miranda Joi Robinson
EAST WORCESTER _ Our recent hardworking 2012 graduate, Miranda Joi Robinson, went home with God on Sunday, Sept. 30, 2012, having the last beats of her heart be in her beloved Mother’s arms.
She was no ordinary girl, from the day she was born on Jan. 6, 1994, she was a Silent Angel, who was forced to fight for her own life. Miranda did not speak with words, she spoke beautifully with smiles instead, and that was her favorite thing to do. Miranda was known by all to be a miracle; the impossible child, her spirit and her soul was so powerful that she fought against her own body. No matter how un-fair the hand she was given, she still made the best of every day.
Her determination to continuously find strength came from the love of her family, they were everything to her. Miranda loved being reminded that she was 18 years old, and that no one was the boss of her. Barney the dinosaur, Shania Twain and Yahtzee carried her through many rough moments of her life, they were her escape from reality.
Miranda is survived by her parents, John and Donna Robinson; her brother, Christopher Robinson; her sisters, Alyssa and Stephanie Robinson; and her “Second Mom,” Laura Eggleston; as well as a numbers of others who loved and cared for her very much, but there are just too many to name.
Miranda was predeceased by her Uncle Tony; and Aunt Cookie, who awaited her at Heaven’s Gates.
We thank God for this Angel, and are relieved that she is finally at peace.
Calling hours are 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012, at the E.J. Skinner Co. Funeral Chapel, 155 Main St., Worcester. The funeral service will follow at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Judith A. Thistle, officiating.
Donations may be made to Catskill Area Hospice and Palliative Care, 1 Birchwood Drive, Oneonta, NY 13820.
