She called the Lyle School System her “Lyle Family.” All the Glenville and Lyle staff and students she served had a special place in her heart.

Robin loved spending time with family and friends on the farm, working outdoors, side by side rides with her boys, and spending time at the family resort on Whitefish Lake. She loved hosting and entertaining. She enjoyed her face time calls with her grandson Gibson. She was the light and life of every party.
