Robina has one sister & brother-in-law, Sharon & Pete Hale of Montana. Niece Kimberly Fay, Nephew Dennis Hale, & Niece Renee Hale who preceded her in death. Also, great nieces & nephews.
Robina was a member of the Yankton Sioux Indian tribe. This earned her the loving nickname of “Chief” by Jerry all the years they were together. As children, all of us daughters remember the frightening words “Chief come do something with these kids!”. That was dad’s form of discipline and it worked! She was known as Beans to many of her close family & friends.
She loved being a grandmother the most of all her many roles in her life. She was known to all of them as Grandma Beanie. All of the grandchildren will agree that a lot of their happiest, adventurous, animal loving, horse riding, free roaming in the country with cousins and maybe Grandma Beanie’s quirky discipline tactics memories are from spending time at Grandad & Grandma Beanies house.
Robina loved being out in the yard in the summertime. Countless miles of dragging hoses around yards where ever she lived. If she didn’t answer the phone you could bet, she was on her John Deere mower. Oh, my goodness the damage she did the year she got a chainsaw!
We know you are now in peace & reunited with the love of your life.
Know that we love you and you will be missed Mom/Grandma Beanie
