Mary Larkins

March 30, 1943 ~ May 30, 2019 (age 76)


Mary Nancy Lee Larkins, nee Robison, of Burtonsville, MD left this earth May 30, 2019.

She was 76 years of age and passed away after a short illness, surrounded by her adoring family.


She was born in 1943 to James and Bertha Robison in Baltimore Maryland, where she spent her childhood among many close friends and family.

Mary’s many new and long-time friends will miss her kind and generous heart and infectious smile. She loved travelling with Jim and spending time with her children and grandchildren. Among other activities, Mary enjoyed her volunteer work at church and the nursing home where she spread joy to friends and strangers alike.

She will also be missed by sister-in-law and brother-in-law Elaine and Art Bennett, son-in-law Bob Maldoven, and daughter-in-law Carole Larkins.
