Obituary for Wilhelmina Robyn

Wilhelmina (Bos) Robyn, longtime resident of Worthington, MN, passed away at her home on August 2 after a valiant battle with lung cancer.
Mina, as she was known to family and friends, was born in Alcester, SD on April 20, 1928 to Gerrit and Johanna Bos.  They lived in South Dakota and Iowa before settling in Ogilvie, MN.
On October 21, 1948 she was married to Harry Robyn in Ogilvie.  They farmed there until 1954 when they moved to the Worthington area.  They were the parents of two children, a son, Sidney Gerald and a daughter, Janice Suzann.  Last fall they celebrated 66 years of marriage.
Mina was a life-long member of the Christian Reformed Church.  She was a feisty woman who loved her grandkids to distraction and was certain they were the best and brightest of all the world’s grandkids.  Her great grandkids thought she was the funniest great-grandmama ever.  She enjoyed crocheting beautiful doilies and afghans, many of which were given to family and friends.  She loved music, especially playing piano and organ, and singing in the church choir.  Mina always had a spotless home and shared many a baked goodie with friends.  She and Harry were Winter Texans for 27 years, and was famous for her grapefruit pies.  She was a wonderful gardner and late summer meant canning and freezing with her daughter, always sharing the bounty with “the kids”.  Mina was the life of the party and was dearly loved by friends and family alike.
Mina is survived by her husband Harry, daughter Janice Kreun and husband Dean; granddaughter Mindy (Matthew) Brouwer, great grandchildren Jackson, Rylie and Emmitt;  granddaughter Melissa (Andy) Kooiker, great grandchildren Morgan and Jayven; daughter in-law Sharon Robyn, grandson, Tony (Katie) Robyn, great grandchild Clara;  granddaughter Wendi (Mike) Vasquez, great grandchildren Tarron, Erica, Jessica, Emma;  grandson Simon Robyn along with great grandchild Chloe; sisters Joanna Van Gunst, Andrea (Martin) De Boer, Margaret “Mikie” Bos, Mary Douglas, Ruth (Jerry) Fenus, brothers Gerrit (Sylvia) Bos, John (Elsie) Bos, Hank (Arlene) Bos, David (Diann) Bos.
Mina was preceded in death by her son, Sidney, grandson Taylor DeMarco, parents Gerrit and Johanna Bos, brothers Alfred Bos and William Bos, infant brother William Bos, and sister Gertrude Tencate.
Memorial services were held at 11:30 am on Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at the Worthington Christian Reformed, with Pastor Adam Eisenga officiating.  Burial preceded the service at Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Worthington.
