CAROLINE COUNTY, Va. — Margaret “Maggie” Robinson was remembered Wednesday at a memorial service in Spotsylvania. The 18-year-old Caroline High School graduate was killed early Saturday morning in a crash in Spotsylvania County.

Her father said Maggie lost control of her car and struck a tree while driving to a friend’s house.

“Maggie was a beautiful, vibrant young woman who brought a smile to everyone’s face just by walking into a room,” her father Rob said. “She was liked by so many people. Everywhere she went she brought happy times and positive energy.”

In high school, Maggie was a member of the AFROTC.

She worked at Dairy Queen in Thornburg and in her free time loved to sing and dance, ride her long board, and spend time with friends and family.

“She loved going outdoors with me hunting, fishing, and riding four-wheelers,” her father said. “She will be missed by so many people.”

In lieu of flowers, her family suggested donations be made in Maggie’s memory to the Richmond SPCA.

A GoFundMe account was set-up to help the Robinson family pay for the unexpected costs.
