Loretta Irene Robbins

Our precious love, Loretta Irene Robbins has left us to join her husband, her son, her grandchildren, and her Savior, Jesus Christ.

She was born to John E. and Goldia Dolson Heath on August 3, 1941, in Pavillion Wyoming, and passed away at age 63, from multiple myeloma. She died at the Eagle Assisted Living Facility in Richland, WA on Thursday, June 23rd 2005 at 7:30 p.m.

One of Loretta’s greatest passions was tending her orchard in Benton City, where she had over 150 organic fruit and nut trees of various varieties. She loved her family dearly, and spent a lot of time serving them joyfully.

Loretta was known for her kind, sweet, innocent spirit and her bubbly, happy-go-lucky, positive take on life. She loved life, and spent every day living it to it’s fullest, always with kindness and a gentle caring disposition. She spoke ill of no one, and always had a smile and a hug ready for all who entered her home.

Loretta grew up in Wyoming, until the family moved to Moses Lake, WA where she met her one true love, Floyd A. Robbins of Alliance, Nebraska. They were married on April 19, 1958 in Quincy, WA for 45 years until Floyd’s death in 2003. In 1961 they moved to Seattle, WA where they began raising their three children. Loretta was a devoted wife and mother, and stayed home raising her children until 1970 when she went to work for a mortgage company. She quickly worked her way up in the mortgage industry, attending various courses, and classes to obtain her standing as Executive Investment Mortgage Accountant, for one of Seattle’s top Mortgage and Banking firms. Loretta retired from banking in 1988, when she and Floyd moved to Benton City, WA. There, she worked her orchard, and also consulted from home as a document control specialist for a human resource firm, finally retiring in 2002.

Loretta is survived by her daughter; Robin R. Robbins, son; Shawn Robbins, grandchildren; Austin and Brandon Whitten, Cortni & Tori Robbins Malek, 2 sisters, 1 brother, numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members and many loving friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, grandparents, her beloved husband; Floyd A. Robbins, son; Curtis Scott Robbins, grandson; Connor Curtis Scott Whitten, brother; Jack E. Heath.

Mom/Grama – we will miss you terribly – you were the absolute best! We are honored to have known you and to have been blessed with your never ending love and support. We will carry you in our hearts always and we cannot wait until we shall see you again, when we too enter those Heavenly Gates.

  • TO ROBIN & FAMILY AND SHAWN;

    WE ARE SADDENED BY LORETTA’S DEATH. EVEN THOUGH WE DID NOT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT OFTEN, IT WAS A GREAT JOY TO SEE AND TALK TO BOTH HER AND AUSTIE AS WE KNEW HIM. I KNOW THAT FAMILY WAS IMPORTANT TO THEM BOTH AS THEY ALWAYS MADE THE TRIP WHEN THE ROBBINS FAMILY WAS HAVING A GET TOGETHER. OUR THOUGHTS, PRAYERS, AND HOPES FOR COMFORT AND HEALING ARE WITH YOU. LIFE HAS DEALT YOU A DOUBLE BLOW WITH THE LOSS OF BOTH YOUR PARENTS.

    GRACE AND PEACE,

    KEN & MARY & FAMILY

  • Her “happy” personality, infectious laugh, and her love for her family, is what I see and feel when I remember Aunt Loretta. She will be missed, but always remembered….

  • I remember visiting Aunt Loretta on our summer vacations back when I was a kid. She was always so kind and warm. I will never forget her infectious laugh. She will be missed by us who are still here on earth, but assuredly embraced by those who have been awaiting her arrival along side our glorious father.

  • While you are healing from the loss of a loved one, God will comfort you 2 Corinthians 7:6. The Bible tells us that God is the father of mercies and God of all comfort and that He will comfort us in all our tribulations 2 Corinthians 1:3-4. Be assured that God loves you and that He understands how much you are hurting. God promises you in Isaiah 43:2 that when you go through deep waters and great trouble, He will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. Run to the shelter of the Most High where you will find sweet rest Psalm 91:1-2.
