Geralene “Jerrie” Robinson passed away at the age of 82 on December 3, 2021 at her home in Butler, OK. She was born in Winters, TX on October 10, 1939 to parents Claud Reagan and Geneva (Fine) Reagan. Jerrie attended school in Amarillo, TX and later she was extremely proud to have completed her GED through Colby Community College. Jerrie married Gary Robinson in Clayton, NM on May 27, 1967 and became true partners in all aspects of their lives over the next 54 years.

Following a new job opportunity, Gary and Jerrie moved their new family to Northwest Kansas. They raised their 3 children in Hoxie and Selden Kansas. Later they continued their adventure in Hadley and Morgantown Kentucky. They completed their lifelong journey in Butler, OK. Jerrie had a passion for and was gifted in, making every house feel like a home no matter where life took them.

Jerrie wore many hats over the years from homemaker to “chore girl” to bookkeeper to Avon Lady to rodeo mom (and driver). During her Kentucky years she even worked on campus at Western Kentucky University where we are sure she “mothered” many students and became their number one fan. Everywhere Jerrie lived she cultivated strong friendships, which lasted throughout the rest of her life. The memories of those friendships remained close to her heart. If you were to ask her what her greatest accomplishment was, she would tell you it was raising her 3 children and watching their family grow. Over time Jerrie developed a strong relationship with her Lord and Savior, and that Faith carried her throughout the rest of her life. She is preceded in death by her parents; 3 sisters, Mary, Pat, and Woo; 2 brothers, Adrian and Pete.

Jerrie is survived by her husband, Gary, of the home; her children – Debbie and Joe Powders of Freedom, OK; Gaylon and Sherry Robinson of Cimmaron, KS; and Tammy and Brendan Fangman of Dumas, TX; her grandchildren – Kelsy and Justin Boots, Jesse and Coli Selman, Baylee Powders, and Macy Fangman; and her great grandchildren – Cooper, Bella, and Rowdy. She is also survived by her brothers, Darwin and Gene Reagan and sister, Nata Wheeler, along with numerous nieces, nephews, and close family friends. Funeral services will be held Friday, December 10th, 2021 at the Strong City First Baptist Church officiated by Laura Nell Hays and Allan Barnett. Burial will immediately follow at Strong City Cemetery under the direction of Chris Whinery and the staff of Affordable Cremation Service-West.
