Robyn Marie Hottell was born in Prineville, Oregon, February 10, 1963, the daughter of Iva May Hunsaker and Lawrence "Larry" Eugene Hottell. At an early age, Robyn's family moved to Harrisburg NE and later moved to Albin, where she excelled in track and volleyball. Robyn graduated from Albin High School in 1981.

After high school, Robyn did some traveling and was married. From that union, she had her only child, Veronica Loya (Gregory). 

Robyn moved to Lovelock, Nevada, where she was employed as a heavy equipment operator at Coeur Rochester Mine, a job she loved and, in turn, found love again. From this union, she gained a large extended family that she loved dearly. She enjoyed her time in Nevada but moved back home to be closer to her family. She worked multiple different jobs but found waitressing a perfect fit for her love of people. Many knew her from local restaurants. Wherever she went, loyal friends and customers seemed to follow.

Robyn loved the outdoors and was always happy to go camping, fishing, boating, rock hunting, or sitting around a campfire with family and friends. Those who knew Robyn best would attest to her hard-working character and extremely generous personality. Robyn loved to make people happy and could always be counted on for a smile and hug. She will be greatly missed.

Robyn is survived by her daughter Veronica (Angus) Gregory of Pine Bluffs WY; brothers, Skeeter (Beth) Hottell of Surprise AZ., Buck Hottell of La Grange WY., stepsiblings, Georgia (Eugene) Smith of Casper WY., Mike (Cindy) Grover of Lancaster CA., Eva (Jeff) Hoak of Pine Bluffs WY., and numerous neices, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins that will keep her forever in their hearts.

Robyn was preceded in death by her mother and father, Iva and Larry Hottell, and stepmother Connie Hottell.
