To the Simerl family – Sorry for your loss of Robinette. She was truly a great person. We always enjoyed having her in the Boone County Gardeners garden club. She will be missed. A memorial tree is dedicated for her from the club. Gene has one dedicated at the Boone County Fairgrounds. I will try to have another dedicated in her name near Genes. His is located south of the FS building west of the pump house now. I think there is another tree we planted near Genes.

I am very sorry to hear of Robinette’s passing. I worked with her for many years at the BDR and enjoyed many visits with her. I feel very blessed that she was able to come to my birthday party in June. May her memories be with you forever.

To the family of Robinette. I have been blessed to know this wonderful family. They are so down to earth and I have shared many conversations with her about a wide variety of topics. She definately had the writer in her and came out in her many stories. Here’s to the family who has been so loving and caring to her. I’m proud to be a part of knowing her at fair oaks and send all my love to all. Thinking of you. Tenee
