Violet Robinson Violet Orlich Robinson was born into a loving family on August 14, 1924 in Johnston, Iowa. One of 12 siblings, the Orlichs were raised to care deeply for each other & for others.

Vi left this world better & departed to her Heavenly reward on February 16, 2021, to be reunited with her beloved Dale & many family members.

The words that best describe Vi are joyful, devoted, organist, potter, supreme apple pie baker, a servant to others, and a friend to everyone. Vi was a love super spreader.

She loved the Lord & cherished her family. Vi is survived by her daughters Jane Clark (Chuck) and Barbara Anderson (David); grandchildren Cami Clark, Kelsey Davis, Tom Anderson (Christina), & Brian Anderson; great-grandsons, Brady Davis, Owen & William Anderson.
