Obituary for Blanche Robbins

Blanche Robbins 1920-2022

Blanche Robbins

10/03/1920 - 10/08/2022

Blanche Elizabeth Robbins was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who left this earth and joined the love of her life Robbie In heaven. She passed away on October 8, 2022 at Riverside Hospital with her son David by her side after suffering a stroke while celebrating her 102nd birthday 
Blanche was born on October 3, 1920 In La Follette, Tennessee to Obie and Bidle Walters. She was preceded in death by her husband of over 68 years, Caswell (Robbie) Robbins, her father Obie, her mother Bidle, stepmother Sally Walters, and brothers Wheeler, George, and Joe. 
She is survived by sons David (Ruby) Robbins of Worthington and Richard (Christie) Robbins of Sacramento, CA; granddaughters Pamela {Scott) Fair, Krista Robbins, Averelle Robbins (Kevin) and grandson Restyn (Jessica) Robbins; great grandsons Ty and Ryan Fair, Hunter Ford, Mack Medeiros, Jaxon and Raidyn Robbins and great granddaughters Kyndra and Roya Robbins.
During her husband's career in the Air Force, they lived in Alabama, Alaska, Texas, Turkey, Mississippi, Colorado, Michigan, Tennessee and ended up in Columbus, Ohio. On retirement they built a house on Lake Norris in Tennessee, enjoyed boating and traveled to the western and southwestern US in their motor home. They then lived in Kingsland, Georgia for many years before moving to Westerville, Ohio. Most recently, Blanche lived for 12 years at Wesley Glen Retirement Community. 
Blanche was resolute in her faith as a Southern Baptist, and always faithfully attended church as long as she was physically able. She enjoyed traveling, swimming, reading, cooking, knitting, cross stitch, and sewing. But most of all, she loved spending time with her family. She treasured her time in Georgia when she was near Averelle and Restyn during their childhood and then being back in Ohio during the childhood of her great grandsons Ty and Ryan. Blanche was an incredibly resilient woman, who survived multiple bouts of cancer in her leg and lung that ultimately resulted in amputation of her left leg. She learned to walk on a prosthesis and remained active for many years.
