Judy Diann Robinson, age 79 of Red Wing, died peacefully at her home with family on Monday, May 25, 2020.
Judy was born on June 28, 1940 in Mazeppa to Doreen Jennie (Smith) and Foster Archie Franklin. She grew up and went to school in Rochester. She moved to Goodhue to attend her senior year of school.

She loved floral design and was a master quilter. She worked at Princess Toys and Quilt By The Falls in Cannon Falls. She loved the color red, and she loved to cook and have supper on the table at 6 o’clock for Ed and her 5 boys on the farm. She enjoyed going to the monthly neighborhood card club get-togethers. Most recently, she loved being with her friends at the daily morning coffee club at Eagle Ridge.
