Mary Lee Robinson
The Widow or Widower Next Door
Author, Speaker, Certified Grief Coach
Mary Lee Robinson found herself suddenly widowed in February of 2013. Finding herself very much alone, she was led to create a Social Group for widows and widowers (or as she fondly refers to them and herself, “wids.”
Next she gathered 25 other “wids” who wanted to participate in the writing of a book The Widow or Widower Next Door, a collection of 25 questions answered by 25 “wids.” The book is aimed at anyone who has ever met a widow or widower, is a widow or widower, or may possibly become a widow or widower - in short - everyone.
Our culture simply does not know what to do for grievers, or that we grievers are often really alone. There is very little information available, presently. It is her passion to improve that culture through education.
She has also co-authored Grief Diaries: Loss of a Spouse, Grief Diaries; How to Help the Newly Bereaved, which we believe should be on every household bookshelf in America, right next to the etiquette book, near the cookbooks. All of her books are available online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, The Grief Toolbox, on this website and Grief Diaries; Shunning the Widow is scheduled for release about the end of this year.
