October 17, 2019
Janeen Grace Evertson Robinson was born October 22, 1944, in Beatrice, Nebraska, the daughter of the late Ora and Iola Halcomb Evertson. As a single mother, she found the love of her life and was united in marriage to Glenn Robinson on April 20, 1984.
Mrs. Robinson worked for Caterpillar, Inc., in Mossville, Illinois for 23 years as an engineer. In 2001, she along with her husband retired to Tennessee. She believed in staying busy and always had a project started. She and her husband enjoyed working on projects together: they built their houses in Illinois and Tennessee along with many other unique projects. Recently they built a tree house, which has all the amenities of a hotel suite. She loved the outdoors, horses, traveling and trail rides on her bicycle.
She never said no to helping others and she never gave up. She was an active member of the First United Methodist Church of Selmer, and former member of the Methodist churches in Princeville, Illinois, and Kimball, Nebraska.
