Francis Robin Lindsey, age 63, of Little Rock, Arkansas, died in Ashland, Oregon on July 8, 2012. She was born in Little Rock to the late Robert Pugh and Mary Moses Lindsey.
Robin was a graduate of Hall High School in Little Rock before receiving her BA degree from Queen’s College in Charlotte, North Caroline, and her Master’s of Social Work from University of Denver.
Back in Little Rock, Robin owned and operated the Old Arkansas Antique Store off of Barrett Road in West Little Rock; as well as performing her social worker skills, specializing in adolescence substance abuse.
In 1999, she moved to Kingman, Arizona, carrying on her practice with the Walapi Indians on their reservation.
After several years working on the reservation she moved to Mount Shasta, California, ending up in Ashland, Oregon, where she was able to watch the whales migrating up and down the coast. She also loved snow shoeing, photography and the outdoors.
Robin was very involved with 12 Step, Native American, Buddhist, and other spiritual pursuits. She was a light spreading truth and health to those who would listen.
Robin will be missed. She moved to Ashland but every chance she got, came back to her Mt. Shasta that had called her. She had many friends here at her mountain.
Robin is survived by two sisters, Mero McCreery and Nancy Kane of Little Rock; and three nieces, Meredith Flanagin and husband Frank of Little Rock, Lindsey Munroe of West Palm Beach, Florida, and Errin Dean of Little Rock.
