My thoughts and prayers go out to Mary's family and friends. Heaven indeed has a new ray of sunshine. We were all blessed to have her in our lives. So sad

I visit here often, but do not post so much. The S2K family is as real as an online family can get. That's especially true of those who came over from other boards when this one was just getting started.

I didn't know Kathy in the way that many who frequent S2K do, but I recognized her as someone who turned adversity into triumph and tough days into good ones...for a lot of people.

Thanks for that Kathy. And thanks to all of S2K for holding our own as special friends.

That says a lot about her, and it says a lot about S2K.

I just logged on for the first time this season to say hi and check on the new wave and saw this post What a shock. I didn't have the opportunity to get to know her but she sounded like a VERY special lady. Although she was taken from us much too young, God needed another Angel.

Rest in Peace, Mary, and my deepest condolences to the family and friends upon whom she now watches over.

A beautiful tribute to Mary on the sunherald.com


Mary (Cluff) Robichaux (1955-2010)

MOSS POINT — When Michael Robichaux crossed paths with the spunky medical clerk more than 30 years ago, she thought he was cocky and arrogant and didn’t mind letting him know.

But Robichaux, an attendant with an ambulance company, kept asking her out until she said yes.

Mary Cluff finally came around and even told friends Robichaux would be the one she’d marry, before even telling him.

“She was right,” said Robichaux, now a major with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department. “She was the love of my life.”

Mary Cluff Robichaux died at her home May 8. She was 53.

She worked for Singing River Hospital and then Bienville Orthopedics for more than 30 years combined, but it was being a mother to Aimée and Jonathan that gave her the greatest satisfaction.

She was blunt, but tactfully so.

“You never questioned where you stood with her,” Aimée Robichaux said.

She was honest and expected that of her children.

“She’d tell us, ‘It doesn’t matter how bad it is, nothing can be worse than lying about it,’” she said.

Robichaux’s fascination with the weather grew after Hurricane Katrina reduced the family’s Washington Avenue home in Pascagoula to a slab.

She posted often on an online weather forum and became the go-to person for storm details by friends and family.

She’d seen “Twister,” the 1996 Helen Hunt-Bill Paxton movie about tornado chasers, at least 25 times, her daughter said.

And during a high school band trip to Universal Studios she chaperoned, Mary Robichaux experienced the movie live.

“We must have gone on that ride 12 times,” she said.

The Robichauxs’ engagement came on April Fool’s Day, but their marriage was no joke.

They showed compassion and consideration to each other, teaching their children how to love.

“I haven’t found the love that my parents had. My parents had a love like none other,” Aimée Robichaux said. “She’d always say ‘I love you’ before he walked out the door, because she never knew if those would be the last words he said.”

I am very sad to hear this news and did not see this until today. Mary will be missed and her family are in our thoughts. She is part of our S2K family forever.

Though I am mostly a reader here, I do remember Ms Robi. I didn't realize she was a "neighbor"-- from just over the state line in Moss Point. She will certainly be missed here. I pray for her family and friends as they deal with their loss and that her soul will rest in peace. God bless you, Ms Robi, and your family!

First time being on board this year and I was totally shocked! I met her 5 years ago while chatting in the storm2k room and was a pleasant person to know. God Bless her and her family!

That's horrible news about MsRobi911. I know I'm late on this. I just saw the thread. I didn't really recall her posts, but in tribute to her, I did a search for her and went back and read all her posts. She seemed to have a wonderful energy about her and in her picture she looks so vibrant.
It just goes to show you, live today and love everyone today as if it's your last day, because you just never know...


God Bless MsRobi911
