Robin was a Christian and long-time member of St. John United Church of Christ in St. Clair, MO. Although her family was always her first priority, Robin had worked outside the home. For thirteen years, she and Jim owned and operated J & M Meat Market in St. Clair. During those years she was a very active member of the community and the St. Clair Chamber. Robin was a past participant of the St. Clair Kiwanis and had often volunteered at local blood drives. She was a member of the Order of Eastern Star, St. Clair Chapter 96 and American Legion Post 347 Ladies Auxiliary in St. Clair. She was a talented seamstress and an avid reader. She had enjoyed gardening and spending time outdoors. She was a great cook and collecting cook books was one of her hobbies. In recent years, Robin enjoyed the companionship of her dog, Rizzo. What meant most to her was time spent with her family. The love they shared and many precious memories they created will live on in their hearts forever.

A devoted and loving mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, step-grandmother, great-grandmother, step-great-grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, great and great-great-aunt, cousin and treasured friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.
