Condolence From: Frankie Mitchell Robbins
Condolence: Margaret Robertson was my second-grade teacher at the oldest South Salem Elementary School, a two-story, four-square building next to the Roanoke River, long since torn down. In my experience, she was one of the sweetest, kindest, most capable educators on the planet. She encouraged children with her smile, her intelligence and her gentle manner. I still recall her introducing us to the perils of spreading rumors by sitting all of us in a circle and having us play the game of "Gossip." We giggled at the end; but we also came to understand the larger message. She encouraged individual creativity and accomplishment. She will be missed.

Condolence: Ms Robertson was both of my son's 2nd grade teacher. She was my fellow water buddy at the Y where we all loved her. She was a precious, sweet, funny lady and will be really missed.

Sunday Services, United Methodist Men's, Sunday School, SKY, Vacation Bible School....they were involved in serving the Lord and the community in all of their endeavors. We will miss both of you Margaret and Greer....Thank you for a life well lived in both service and humility....archie and kay thomasson
