Robin passed away early, the morning of Nov 16, 2022. She was 72. She spent the last year of her life in Tooele, Utah at Rocky Mountain Care where she was cared for and loved by some wonderful people. Kindness was their motto. In May of 2021, cancer surfaced in her life. She fought it with a lot of patience, faith, hope and humor. Never losing her love of family and the Lord.
Robin was born in Redbud, Illinois on June 22, 1950 to Audrey Fern Drysdale Phelps and Lawrence Robin Phelps. She was the third child born in a family of ten.
She is preceded in death by her mother (Audrey Fern); father (Lawrence Robin). Also preceding her death, an older sibling, Jonnie Mark, who passed at 8 months. Fern was carrying Robin when Jonnie Mark passed away.
Robin is survived by her husband, Kenneth White; seven children: Stacey Moats (Jeff), Brian Gordon (Christy), Lisa Lung (Brian), Robert Gordon (Mary), Lindsey Tanner (Trent), Laura Western (Jesse) and Darla White. She is also survived by her 8 siblings: Karen (Dennis) Hone, Brenton (Lar), Phelps, Brad (Ruth) Phelps, Darla (Larry) Allen, Hal (Janis) Phelps, Dee Ann (Darrell) Allen, Kathy (Trent) Baker, Rick (Janell) Phelps; 19 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild.
In May 1960, Fern moved her family to Blackfoot, Idaho (Snake River). As years passed, Robin became a mother and was still living in Idaho with two small boys, Brian and Robert. When she and Ken became acquainted Ken was living in Oregon with two small girls, Stacey and Lisa. Each had a previous marriage. Letters began to flow for 3 or 4 months and they decided it was time to meet each other. The decision to marry developed and they were married in the Logan, Utah Temple in April, 1975. After a short honeymoon they began married life in Hillsboro, Oregon. Soon 3 girls joined the family: Lindsey, Laura, and Darla.
Many comments were made what a busy mother she must be and the challenge of raising 7 young children. Her reply was often, "with much of prayer and tears." She worried frequently if her children would ever really love one another. In 1983, the family moved to Utah. It was a comfortable move for Robin. Many sisters and brothers were close now and many cousins for her 7 children to associate with. She considered these relationships a great blessing in her life.
Words cannot describe the love she had for her husband, her children, the 19 grandchildren and one great grandchild that enriched her life. In her pleasant way, she showed us how to live and laugh, and she enjoyed both. Her 7 children REALLY love each other . Robin, I think we did it! And how we love and miss you terribly.
