Joan D. Robbins

Joan D Robbins, age 89, of Rhinelander, died Aug. 23, 2018, at St. Mary's Hospital in Rhinelander. Joan was born in Rhinelander on Friday, Jan. 18, 1929 to Clifford and Esther (Peterson) Robbins.

Joan was pretty much a lifelong resident of Rhinelander. She was born, raised and attended schools here. She lived in Chicago for a short time after her schooling but then returned to Rhinelander. She was employed in the chip factory for a short period of time and then went to work for the Jesse family. Joan helped watch the kids and then grandkids for the Jesses so that they could devote the time necessary to run Jesse Foods. It was a match made in Heaven. Joan loved watching the kids, and doing anything else she could to help, and the Jesses loved having her. It started a friendship that truly lasted a lifetime.

Joan lived a pretty simple life, just the way she wanted it. She enjoyed watching any sports on TV. Joan and her family are very grateful for the wonderful care provided her at the end by Ascension Hospice.

Joan is survived by her sisters Maxine Westbrook and Florence Gauthier, her many nieces and nephews and her wonderful friends, Mary Jesse and Nancy and John Federle. She was preceded in death by sisters Barbara Robbins and Dorlene Ring, her brother James Robbins and her parents.

Graveside services for Joan will be held on Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018 at 10 a.m. at the Forest Home Cemetery. You may leave your private condolences for Joan's family at The Carlson Funeral Home (715-369-1414) is serving the Robbins family.
