April 20, 1945 – Oct. 23, 2019

Mary Louise Bartlett, 74, passed away at South Peninsula Hospital on Oct. 23, 2019 with friends by her side.

Mary was born in Seattle, Washington. She moved to Alaska in 1987 from Bullhead City, Arizona. Mary in later years took up residence in Anchor Point, Alaska.

She and her husband, Don Robinson, with their band entertained throughout the west for many years as back-ups to many famous groups.

Mary was a life member of the Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10221 in Anchor Point. She held many officer positions and was very active over the years. She served with the Alaska State Defense Force, and was also very active with the Anchor Point Senior Center.

Mary was loved by all who crossed her path. Vivacious — always dressed to go to town. We loved her portrayal of fragile and delicate. She loved to turn nothing into something with her artistic nature.

Mary was preceded in death by her mother, Juanita Pinkerton; father, Kenneth Hall Bartlett; an older sister; and her husband, Donald Robinson.

She is survived by sister Margaret McDaniel of Anchorage

There will be a Celebration and Toast of Life at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2019 held at VFW Post 10221 located in Anchor Point with a potluck to follow.

Arrangements were by Homer Funeral Home & Cremation services.

As a reminder to be safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Homer artist Julie Tomich painted face masks on the figures of Tom Reed’s mural, “Tribute to Performing Artists,” as seen on July 3, 2020, on Pioneer Avenue in Homer, Alaska. Reed painted the mural in August 1985 on a retaining wall in front of NOMAR (then Proctor’s Grocery), and updated the mural with additional figures in 2008 under a city grant. Using a chalk-based, non-permanent paint, Tomich got permission from the city to add the masks to the mural. (Photo by Michael Armstrong/Homer News)
