Bernadine was born on September 9, 1935 in Murray Utah to Claud LaDrew and Bernadine Drown. She was the oldest of two children. Bernadine grew up in Murray, Utah, and graduated from Murray High School and later attended business college.
On August 20 1956, Bernadine married her eternal companion, Allen Corky Robinson, in the Salt Lake Temple. Bernadine and Corky are the proud parents of four children: Dallen Robinson (CherEl), Cindy Sadler (Kay), Kathy Robinson (Charlie) and Dale Robinson (Cheryl).
As a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Bernadine served her church as the Hunter fourth ward Relief Society President and other various positions in her Erda ward. She truly enjoyed serving others and helping with various charities, including her involvement in the starting of the Festival of Trees. She was an active member of Daughters of Utah Pioneers (DUP) for many years. She was a dedicated recruiter for new members, brought many members into DUP because of her love for the organization.
One of her many highlights was when she and Corky were selected as Grand Marshalls for the Erda Days.
Bernadine was a talented athlete and fisher woman and a gifted cake decorator. She played softball and gained the nickname “Bubbles” for her good cheer and comradery. She later coached her daughters’ softball team up to the national level. Bernadine also won the high score bowling trophy in her league while pregnant with her third child. She could decorate a cake that looked like a football with real leather as well as elegant multi-layer wedding cakes. She enjoyed camping with her husband, children and grandchildren and loved catching frogs, snakes and spiders with them. Bernadine was so proud and supported her children in their every endeavor and was a beloved mother. She sacrificed for her family and was charitable to all. She loved her sister immensely and always looked forward to her trips to Florida to see her and her husband. Bernadine was an incredible friend as she maintained close relationships with special connections made throughout her life. She loved and served those around her and made a positive difference in the lives of those she touched, and always with a smile.
Bernadine loved to watch and cheer on her grandchildren in their sport activities and family gatherings. She always joined in on all the games and activities. She loved BYU sports, especially football, where she attended the games with family. She was a season ticket holder for many years, until her health prevented her from attending.
Most of all she loved her husband Corky and supported and loved him with everything she had. They were a remarkable team for 66+ years. Corky was tireless in his devotion and care for her particularly as her illness progressed. Their daughter Kathy was steadfast as her mothers’ caregiver and was honored to take the role.
Bernadine is survived by her husband Corky, sister Doris, their four children, 13 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.
