Obituary Judith C. Robison
Judith Carol Robison, the daughter of Carrol Anderson and Mildred (Aspergren) Anderson, was born May 18, 1933 in Scandia, Kansas and passed away on April 13, 2023 at Republic County Hospital at the age of 89 years, 10 months and 25 days.
Judith grew up in Scandia, KS, attending the local public schools and graduated from Scandia High School in 1951. After graduating Judith began her banking career. She worked at the Scandia State Bank for 24 years. She was a teller and the Assistant Cashier. She was in charge of making sure every penny was accounted for, in and out of the bank. Her boss (Walter Boyles) reports “Judith runs a tight ship” so did he, so they were a great match.
Judith was a member of the Amana Lutheran Church in Scandia where she held many positions, including being the Sec/Treasure for over 25 years. She was a member of the Amana WELCAN Ladies Group, an Eagles Club member, a Moose Lodge member, enjoyed the Red Hat Ladies Club. And later became a member of the Scandia United Methodist Church.
On September 6, 1975, she was united in marriage to Charles Robison. She instantly became a Mom to 3 Teenagers (Delton, Debbie & Doyle) and took on the role of a Farm wife. Robison Farms soon needed a bookkeeper and Chef; and Judith accepted those positions willingly. She delivered food to the family out in the field and of course at the farm. Robison Farms Custom Harvesting ran 6 combines from Texas to the Canada border, harvesting wheat, and then returning home to harvest the fall crops. Charles and Judith would meet the crew toward the end of the season, Judith would help Cook and Charles would fill in wherever he was needed. They would come home with Delton & Belinda’s children; take care of them & send them to school until the entire group was home. Judith learned how to run a computer, do books on the computer, backup files, send records to Accountant on jump drives, read Facebook, Upload, download and copy Family pictures, read Emails, find the weather forecast and play Solitaire.
Judith enjoyed sewing and she made a lot of her own clothes, wedding dresses and even suits for others. She was an awesome seamstress and had many customers who had her do alterations to their clothing. As the years went by she made baby blankets, teddy bears, Care Bears, Cabbage Patch dolls, other dolls and doll clothes for her grandchildren. She enjoyed traveling anywhere Charles or the Family would take her Florida, Colorado, Fishing & Cruising in Alaska, Montana, Nebraska, North & South Dakota, Nevada, California to name a few.
Judith was a collector, she enjoyed collecting Cookbooks, Spoons, Cookie Jars, Rolling pins, Shoes, Clothes and Red Birds. She loved to shop a lot and give gifts to those she loved.
The most important thing in Judith’s heart was family. She enjoyed cooking and having the family over for all the Holidays. She enjoyed going to family reunions. Meeting and visiting with extended family. She kept family tree records, Extended Family pictures and labeled them for younger generations to come. She enjoyed sharing those memories/pictures with the younger generation. Even in her last few months, she had a list of her immediate family and reviewed the list multiple times daily as she did not want to forget anyone.
Judith was preceded in death by her parents, Carrol & Mildred Anderson; her husband, Charles in 2018; sister, Anita Sothers; grandson, Christopher Simmons; daughter-in-law, Linda Robison; and brother-in-law, Dean Sothers.
