Mary Beth Robison
June 2, 1953 ~ January 3, 2024 (age 70) 70 Years Old
Mary Beth (Urban) Robison passed away at Providence Centralia Hospital on January 3rd, 2024. She had been sick with respiratory failure for several years, with weekly treatments to keep going until the end. Thank you, Short Stay Staff, for all your care and support over the years.
Mary Beth, or “Beth” as most people called her, was born on June 2nd, 1953, in Centralia, WA, to Mary E. & Frank J. Urban. She was the last child of 4; she was the baby of the family. Always busy, on the go, and chatty until the very last day here. She grew up on Waunch’s Prairie and attended Oakview School as a child.
She is survived by her daughter, Lena Begnaud (Lee). Granddaughter Megan (Raven Piper) of Colorado Springs, CO, and Grandson Ethan Begnaud of Anchorage, AK. Timothy Urban of Rochester, WA, and Granddaughter Aubrey Urban. Her sister Linda C. Amondson-Muller, Phoenix, AZ. And her two favorite girls, the dogs Lilly And Lucy.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 40 years, Mike G. Robison (deceased Oct. 2022). Others who preceded her include her grandparents, parents - Frank and Mary Urban, brothers - John F. Urban and Larry C. Urban, and several close friends.
Beth worked most of her life at several local restaurants and lounges. For many years, she was often recognized as the “Carla” from Cheers at the Kit Carson Lounge. She loved her job at the “Kit” and working for George and Alice.
When Beth was younger, she had several horses and loved many animals. She loved her home and dogs and often worked with colored pencils, craft projects, and puzzles. She worked hard, loved movies, and enjoyed talking to friends on the phone when she couldn’t get out. Her last big outing was with friends at her 50th class reunion at Centralia High School. She talked about it a year later; it was a great time with several renewed friendships.
Beth enjoyed visiting her friends over breakfast out or at home and appreciated the support they gave her over the years. A few of her close friends are Penny Webley, Char Hammond, Beckey, Trisha, Margie, Sandy, Debbie Ludwig, Kriss E., and Jerry Vodra. Thank you.
As an organ donor, she was able to give the gift of sight to someone else in need of seeing their family, colors, and the world.
Donations may be to the charity of your choice. She loved her friends, family, and girls (dogs).
Cremation is the arrangement and handled by Cattermole Funeral Home in Winlock, WA.
A gathering of friends and family will take place in the spring because Beth liked the sun and the heat; tentatively planned Sunday for June 2nd.
