Robin was a 1972 graduate of Glenbard West high school. After high school, she worked in printed circuit design.  She also spent many years as co-owner with her sister of Stagecoach Antiques in the Little Shoppes of downtown Glen Ellyn.  She and Ray enjoyed being out in nature, taking frequent trips to the Morton Arboretum, Lake Ellyn, and their family’s campsite at Woodhaven Lakes. She loved being at the beach, but more frequently spent summers lounging around her sister’s pool or the small pool they would set up in the backyard each summer. She also had a passion for gardening; growing and tending to beautiful flowers and a vegetable garden in her yard. 

Robin had a very artistic soul. She enjoyed painting, doodling, and baking. She created many beautiful cakes to celebrate all kinds of occasions, but especially her children’s birthdays. Music also played a huge role in Robin’s life.  Whether she was listening to her favorite artists like Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles, attending concerts, or playing her guitar and singing herself, Robin always had a passion for music. She even encouraged her family to form a band (The Rubber Band) that played in her basement for many years. 

One of her other favorite things to do was watch her daughters do anything they loved. She was happy to host sleepovers and pre-dance preparations so she could be a part of the fun. She also spent endless days at Ackerman Park and other softball fields as Tammy and Ashley played softball for so many years. She went to every art show, choir concert, and awards ceremony to support her daughters as well.

Another passion of Robin’s was animals, particularly dogs. She and Ray welcomed 5 dogs (Chinook, Woody, Shadow, Tottie, and Bean) into their family over the course of their almost 43 years of marriage and they loved them all like their own children. When their grand-dogs Holly and Tallulah came along, they loved them just as much. 

In her 8 years as a grandmother, she loved seeing her grandchildren Lydia and Colleen grow from tiny infants into precious little people. She loved seeing their unique personalities blossom in the short time she had with them.
