She and Geo dated for a few years and were eventually married and sealed for time and all eternity in the Vernal, Utah, Temple on January 4, 2003. In 2007 they were blessed with another son, George.
Robin had many talents. There wasn’t much she couldn’t do. From baking a cake to building a house, she knew how to do it all. She had an extraordinary gift for crocheting, sewing, drawing and cross stitching. She loved to read and journal and did it very often. There wasn’t anything she didn’t make note of.
Robin was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had a strong testimony and loved her Savior immensely. She had various callings in the church and fulfilled them to the best of her ability. Her calling in Scouts was by far her favorite. She went above and beyond to make Scout Days and activities amazing for her boys.
She had a love for camping, fishing, tending to her garden and animals, traveling with her family and singing. She had the most beautiful voice. Her number one passion in life was being a wife and mother. She strived everyday to do her best for her family and found every opportunity to serve them. Her grand babies were her life and she loved them so very much.
