Katelyn Jo “Katie” Robinson, age 20, of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan passed away on Thursday, June 17, 2021, as a result of a car accident.
Katie was born on November 8, 2000, in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin to Kevin and Nancy (Marone) Robinson. She graduated from Sault Area High School with the class of 2019. She attended Aurora University in Aurora, IL, and was transferring home to Lake Superior State University where she was excited to play hockey once again with former teammates, lifelong friends, and pursue a degree in psychology with a future plan to achieve her Master’s Degree in Social Work.
Katie found joy in playing hockey and being a part of a large hockey family where she made friends across all of the U.S. and in Canada. Growing up, when not playing hockey, she loved being a member of the cross country team. She was talented in art and found comfort while painting in any medium. She had a love for animals and enjoyed her work at the Sault Animal Hospital. Katie is known for having a kind soul, always including others, and being an immediate best friend to everyone. She is remembered for her smile and her laugh. She was a beautiful person, inside and out.
Katie is survived by her parents, her two brothers: Gregory Robinson and Bradley Robinson of Sault Ste. Marie and her grandparents: Janice (DeVries) Marone of Yuma, AZ, and Gerald & Sandra (Johnson) Robinson of Casa Grande, AZ. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Katie was preceded in death by her grandfather: Ernest Marone.
