Obituary-Robin Lynn Macy

Robin Lynn (Nicewander) Macy was born November 6, 1958, in Clay Center, Kansas, the second of two children born to Ralph Nicewander and Leola Stites Nicewander. She died on April 4, 2023

She attended Clay Center schools, graduating from Clay Center Community High School in 1977. During high school, Robin started working at age 14 as a waitress at The Jiffy Inn in Clay Center, then worked in various jobs as a retail salesclerk. In later years she worked in office jobs.

Robin was married to John Macy of Augusta, Kansas on November 27, 1982, at the Clay Center Wesleyan Church. They briefly lived in rural Augusta for about 18 months, then moved to the farm that John had purchased before their marriage in rural Miltonvale, KS where they had made their home for the past 39 years.

John and Robin were blessed with two children: Nicole Eilene in 1984 and Nathaniel Wesley in 1988.

Robin devoted her life to her home and family. She was a meticulous keeper of the home. She had a strong artistic bent, both in and around the house with the seasonal decorating and landscaping. She was a quiet extrovert who enjoyed being around people. Throughout her illness, she saw the medical care givers, particularly at the Tammy Walker Cancer, as well as other patients, as her ministry.

She saw this as her opportunity to impact others with the love of Christ, seeing this as part of God’s sovereign design in her own battle with cancer.

She was a devoted member of the Concordia Wesleyan Church.

Robin was preceded in death by her father, Ralph Nicewander.

She is survived by her husband, John Macy of Miltonvale, Kansas; daughter, Nicole Macy of Balynure County Antrim, Northern Ireland; son, Nathaniel of Center, Kansas; grandson, Elijah; granddaughter, Audra; mother, Leola Nicewander of Clay Center, Kansas; brother, Edward Nicewander of Hutchinson, Kansas and lifelong dear friend, Vickie Coover. of Barnard, Kansas.
