Renee Heap Robinson

1931 ~ 2023

Renee Robinson was born in 1931 in Freedom Wyoming to Clarence and Bertha Heap. She grew up in Star Valley and later moved to Salt Lake. She was married to her best friend, Paul Robinson, for 45 years. Renee worked at Kmart for 15 years until she was forced to retire at 80 due to store closures. She lived independently for 29 years. Renee enjoyed getting together with family and lunches with her best friend, Shirley.

She died peacefully in her sleep on 7/13/23. She was very fortunate to leave this world the way she wanted. Renee achieved her goal of living in her own house and sleeping in her own bed to the very end. She woke up in a world full of loved ones who departed before her.

Renee was survived by Toni Lee Korff (Randy), Tamara Melvin (Jeff), Mark Robinson (Terry), Greg Robinson (Linda), 26 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by Paul Robinson (husband), Van Robinson (son), Terry Duggan (daughter), Venna Norris (sister), Opal Turner (sister), Shane Heap (brother), Joseph Heap (brother) and Boyd Heap (brother).

Renee was my mother in law and a wonderful person and grandma. I will miss her and having her over for dinners along with my mom. She would always bring containers for left overs, which she loved Mark’s cooking. We love you and will miss you. Mark, Terry, Melissa, Zachary.

Dear Tony, Tammy, Mark, Greg and families and the families of Terry and Van,
I extend my deepest sympathy to each of you and pray that you will receive the comfort and peace you need at this time and in the days and months to come. You have been so very blessed to have your mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother for so long, what a special gift.
I have many happy memories of spending several Thanksgivings at Aunt Renee and Uncle Paul's and having you come to spend several at our home, Aunt Venna and Uncle Bud. Your mom was always so gracious to us. I know my mother truly enjoyed getting to know her younger sister better, during their later years. It's sad that Aunt Renee, mom and Aunt Opal didn't have the opportunity to grow up together, but I know they were all grateful for the time they were able to spend creating memories, as adults. Family is so very important.
May you all find comfort in the many happy, special memories you have now and in the future.
With deepest condolences and love,
Your cousin, Cindy Norris Erickson
