Betty (Hansen) Robinson

December 11, 1932 ~ April 3, 2022 (age 89)


Betty Robinson, 89, of Abraham Street, Weston, passed away peacefully at Mount View Care Center, Wausau, Sunday evening, April 3, 2022.

Betty was born December 11, 1932, in Tomahawk to Jack and Hazel (Schgdloski) Hansen.  She graduated from Tomahawk H.S. in 1951 and married James A. Robinson of Heafford Junction in 1953.  Jim and Betty moved often during his 20 years of service in the U.S. Air Force, and she enjoyed making many friends wherever they lived in both the United States and England.  After Jim retired from the Air Force, they settled in Weston in 1974 when Jim began working for Zimpro in Rothschild.  They continued to travel, however, taking many motorhome/camping trips to all parts of the country.  Betty was a longtime member of Mount Olive Lutheran Church, where she taught Sunday School for a time. She enjoyed reading (especially science fiction), word puzzles, watching television mysteries and, especially, visiting with friends and family.
Survivors include Jim Robinson, her husband of 68 years, and three children, James M. Robinson (wife Judy) of Verona, John Robinson of Weston and Wendy Robinson of Weston. She is also survived by a brother, Michael Hansen (wife Jean) of Tomahawk, and three grandchildren, Jennifer Robinson of Fitchburg, Allen Robinson of Baltimore, MD, and Eric Robinson of Fitchburg.  She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Jackie Hansen, and her sister, Margaret Smith.
A celebration of Betty’s life will be held on Tuesday, April 12, at Brainard Funeral Home, 5712 Memorial Ct., Weston, with visitation beginning at 1 pm and a service at 2 pm.  Interment will be at the Greenwood Cemetery in Tomahawk at a later date.
