On Saturday, January 12, Cynthia (Cindy) Eulalia Barrier Elkins Robison, a compassionate, faithful, loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend to all, passed away suddenly at the age of 77 leaving behind a remarkable legacy.
Cindy was born July 13, 1941 in San Benito, Texas to Jack and Leona Barrier. Thirteen years later she became a proud big sister to Ardath (Don) Egle followed by Marsha (Gabriel) Pañola, and Phoebe (Rob) Fry.
Cindy married Neil Elkins (deceased) in 1959 shortly after graduating from Santa Rosa High School in Santa Rosa, Texas. From this union, Cindy began her most cherished role of mother to sons Jerry (Tammy) and Jack, her constant sidekick and best friend. Cindy was so proud of her sons.
June 25, 1988 Cindy married her loving “sweetheart”, “honey”, and dear companion, Bert Robison, in Los Chavez, NM, father of Joene (deceased) and Kelley. Cindy and Bert’s relationship was definitely a love story. Neither ever left the house without kissing the other goodbye.
Cindy was a long-time member of First Baptist Church of Los Chavez and a proud member of several community organizations and clubs including The Red Hat Society (over 10 years), Sew Club (over 20 years), Chuckwagon CowBelles ( 9 years), and Extension Association of New Mexico (EANM) (over 30 years) where she served in several leadership positions including EANM State President. Cindy treasured her friendships with all of her club sisters and was the first to warmly welcome and befriend anyone new. In 2015, Cindy was awarded the state EANM “Heart of Extension” award. Cindy had a HUGE heart! She loved people, and people loved her.
Cindy was an energetic lady who enjoyed volunteering and making sure everyone else’s day was special. You knew you were loved by Cindy when you received one of her beautiful handcrafted, stamped cards. She was affectionately called “The Outhouse Lady” because of her over 100 outhouse collectibles. She loved country western music, “Grapette” memorabilia, cooking (especially her famous Spanish rice, turkey and dressing), Macaroni Grille, her special friends and neighbors Gloria and Andrew Madrid, and all her many family and friends.
Cindy will be forever remembered by her family including beloved grandchildren Brian (Lydia), Lily, Melissa (Will), Amanda, Brittney, Emily, Mariah (Melvin), Quinn (deceased), Taylor, and Rhiannon and precious great-grandchildren Little Bri, Josh, Jamarley, Malachi, Melvin, and Mayvis. Cindy will also be forever remembered by a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and countless friends.
