Robbie was a wonderful person who showed love to everyone she came in contact with. She was caring and beautiful inside and out. She was the most giving person throughout her entire life.

I remember Robbie and her sister Donna from our Thursday Women's City bowling league at Roosevelt Bowl. Those were the best of times. Everyone wanted to join our league cuz we were the fun ones. Rest easy my friend. I can just hear the conversations you and Darlene are having .
Robbie you’ll be miss💕
Missing those bowling days💕RIP Robbie
From a good neighbor when I knew no one on the block, Ron and Robbie were both there for me. Both have become good friends from the start, but Robbie drew me into her life as a true friend would do. She is truly missed in my world, but I'll carry her forever in my heart with the many memories we shared. I love you Robbie!
My Beautiful Mom
Rest in peace Robbie.
So so sorry for Robbie's loss. She'll be deeply missed by all who knew her. I wish I'd have been there for her in her last days. She was a best friend & we had nothing but good times together. Even at work on the graveyard shift. She was so smart & I know she's looking down at us with her beautiful smile. I love you Robbie.
I first met Robbie when Brandi and Ronnie started Black Hawk School with my daughter. She always helped out with the schools parties. She was always so much fun and will be missed by everyone whose lives she touched. Prayers for the whole Brandenburg families. Mike and Theresa Freeman
The first place my husband and I lived was Park Madison Apartments. We loved living there and Robbie was a wonderful Manager. I am so sorry to hear of her passing and my sympathies go out to Ron, her children, grandchildren and all of her family. Rest in Peace Robbie.
