September 5, 1943 ~ February 7, 2022 (age 78)


Fitchburg-Barbara Ann (Milligan) Tozier-Robbins, 78, died in Heywood Hospital, Gardner on Monday, February 7, 2022, with her loving family by her side.

   Barbara was born in Moncks Corner, SC on September 5, 1943, daughter of the late Carriebell Milligan and Wally Fennick. She was the beloved wife of Paul Alvin Robinson, Sr., sharing 23 wonderful years, having married on March 30, 2016.

   Before settling in Fitchburg in 1997, Barbara enjoyed various Army postings stateside and abroad, most notably in Fort Sill, OK, Fort Devens, MA and Fort Eustis, VA. She proudly served over 20 years in the United States Army from 1977 to 1997 as an x-ray specialist. She was known for her great love of her children that extended to all that she encountered. Barbara had a tremendous heart and loving spirit that called her to open her arms and home to many. She dedicated herself to the children so they could have a joyous life. She was known for serving people, reaching out to the lost, and being an advocate for all children. She always had a sense of hope no matter the prediction. Barbara Ann encouraged love, forgiveness and faith. In her spare time, she loved to shop, garden, travel and particularly cherished time spent with all her beloved children and grandchildren. Barbara Ann had an affinity for fine handbags and clothes, and her statement jewelry. You could always catch her with a Coke, a snickers bar, a can of boiled peanuts and although allergic, she loved shrimp!
