Flora "Flo" Elaine Robbins was born August 12, 1929, the daughter of Jules Crawford and Lilian (Herrel)Crawford at Brookhaven, Mississippi. She grew up in Brookhaven and graduated from High School.  On January 3, 1948 Flo was united in marriage with Jesse Wayne Robbins.  Together they lived in several states due to Wayne's employment in the oil field.  They lived in Mississippi, Louisiana,  North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, before settling in Kimball, Nebraska.  Flo and Wayne owned and operated Z & S Construction Co. Inc. in Kimball.  Flo helped in making business decisions and performed the bookkeeping duties.

Flo was always interested in sports and loved to bowl and golf.  She was a lifelong member of the Methodist Church and received her 75-year membership pin.  In 2009 she received the Women of the year award from the Kimball Chamber of Commerce.  Flo had a fun life in her 94 years. Flo and Wayne had many adventures in their numerous travels.  One of her most memorable trips was to Israel. They walked the path that Jesus walked and she watched Wayne put his feet in the Jordan river to the dismay of the tour guide.  Flo enjoyed other trips including Egypt where she rode a camel,  spending time in Finland, Sweden, Norway, and exploring parts of Russia just to name a few.

Survivors include daughter Barbara Elaine Robbins (deceased John Chase) Erie, Colorado; son Bud (Connie) Robbins, Cheyenne, Wyoming; daughter Susan (David) Haack, Kimball, Nebraska; daughter Janice (Jay) Berry, Cheyenne, Wyoming; Flo also leaves behind her grandchildren Chace (Tara) Robbins Midland Texas, Kaleigh(Kevin)Hamp Cheyenne, Wyoming, Christopher Haack Kimball, NE, Ashley (Jason)Noel Sidney, Nebraska, Stacia (Travis)Koch Cheyenne, Wyoming, Jessie(Robin) Dafoe, Cheyenne Wyoming, Amy(Lander) Nicodemus, Burns Wyoming, Ben(Hanna)Berry, Westminster, Colorado.

We are comforted by the fact that she is in Heaven with Wayne, the love of her life.
