Robin Glenn, 58, died August 12, 2023, at the Phelps Health Hospital after being diagnosed with stage four liver failure. She was born on January 23, 1965, in the Zama Hospital at Naval Air Station Atsugi, Japan. She was the daughter of William A. Glenn II and Helen Howland Glenn.
With Robin’s father in the Navy the family moved many times until he retired and settled in Chico, California. Robin graduated from Chico Senior High in 1983. She did take some community college classes before deciding that was not for her. She then became a “Jack of all Trades,” working many jobs, everything from running a video store to food services, cashier to bar tender, Amazon ‘picker” to bell captain. Robin was also a station manager at the Stockton and San Luis Obispo, California airports. Her favorite and longest running jobs were working backstage at Harrah’s and Caesar’s Tahoe, with costumes, scene sets, and all that it entailed. In 2016 Robin quit working outside of the home and began taking care of her mother and father as they aged. She never returned to the work force.
In her 20’s and 30’s Robin enjoyed all that the Tahoe area had to offer. She skied, snow shoed, hiked, ran, climbed rocks and mountains, and camped. She hated to move from the area. More recently, Robin enjoyed reading cookbooks looking for a new recipe to try out, making jewelry, working with plants, and caring for her beloved cats and dogs.
In the last few years of her life, she attended Rolla Bible church in Rolla, Missouri. She enjoyed the Ladies Bible Study and learning more from God’s word. She accepted Jesus as her savior about eight years ago. She had said in the last few weeks that she was ready to see Jesus, her Lord.
Robin never married. She is survived by her sisters, Mary (Glenn) Alford and brother-in-law Scott Alford of St. James; Ellen Glenn of Reno, NV; and three nephews, two nieces, and one grand-niece.
She was preceded in death by her parents, William A. Glenn II and Helen H. Glenn, and brother William Lawrence Glenn.
Robin chose to be cremated and not to have a service. One of her last acts was to be an organ and tissue donor. She was a blessing even in the end.
