OBITUARY - ROBYN LUCILLE (CORLL) MAY

Robyn Lucille MAY, daughter of Floyd and Sadie (POWELL) CORLL, was born December 1, 1912 at Diagonal, Iowa. She departed this life March 25, 2002 at the home in Clearview Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa, at the age of 89 years, three months and 24 days.

Robyn's family moved to the rural Mount Ayr area where she received her elementary education at Hazel Glenn school and continued on to graduate from Mount Ayr high school. She then became the teacher at Knowlton, Iowa and enjoyed her students, looking forward to their visits throughout the rest of her lifetime.

On December 31, 1932, she was united in marriage to Michael Arthur "Art" MAY at Kansas City, Missouri. The couple farmed for 12 years in the Kellerton, Iowa area. Robyn worked at Pollard's Grocery in Kellerton and Wayne Grocery in Lamoni, Iowa during this time. Later in life, Robyn moved into the town of Kellerton, last residing at the Sunnyview Apartments. She cherished the friendships made there.

A kind and loving wife, she was always willing to lend a helping hand to everyone. She took great pride in her home and enjoyed time spent with relatives and friends. Later in life, she especially liked attending her great-nephews and nieces' ballgames and activities and going on trips and picnics with all.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Art; a sister Fern REYNOLDS; two brothers, Donald and William CORLL; a brother-in-law Jack TERWILLIGER; and a great-niece Somer BARNES.

Robyn is survived by her brother Lester CORLL; two sisters, Lola TERWILLIGER and Nola LANDPHAIR and husband Wilbur, all of Mount Ayr; a brother-in-law Junior REYNOLDS of Mount Ayr; two sisters-in-law, Susie CORLL of Mount Ayr and Louise CORLL of Ankeny, Iowa; several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews and friends.

Funeral services were held Friday, March 29, 2002, at Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home in Mount Ayr with Pastor Rick HAWKINS officiating. Musicians were Justin AKERS and Martha LANDPHAIR. Casket bearers were Travis BARNES, Shannon BARNES, Brent MEANS, Clint MEANS, Aaron WESTCOTT and Ron LANDPHAIR. Honorary pallbearers were Chandra HENRICHS, Nicole OPFER, Robyn MEANS, Tracy BARNES and Tessa BARNES.

Robyn was laid to rest in the Maple Row Cemetery, Kellerton.
