Born February 23, 1943 she was the daughter of the late Leonard Robinson and Dorothy Robinson of Monticello, NY.

Emmy was an avid sports individual.  She bowled with the pros; won numerous lady golf tournaments; competed with some of the top lady race car drivers, and was an expert skeet shooter – always beating the men at the hunting lodge in Monticello, NY.

She loved to travel around the world – 5 different cruise lines, but most of all enjoyed going to auctions, especially the “Second Time Around” where she met so many beautiful people in Georgia.  Emmy’s love for animals was overwhelmingly – 26 cats, 2 survivors, Betsey Lou and Peaches, both Georgia Cats; 5 horses and 1 donkey named Festus, now living in Braselton, GA.
