Daughter of Robert Loren Kolp and Dorothy Lois (Williams) Kolp, Robbie was born in Denver, CO. It was there, at the age of 22, she met and married Richard Schellenger. The young couple started life together in Aurora, CO before moving with their three children to Fresno, CA, and then settling in Eugene, OR and finally, in retirement, Lebanon, OR.

Robbie worked in the medical field as a radiology technician for 47 years. Most recently at McKenzie Willamette Medical Center.

She enjoyed tole painting and working with pottery. Robbie loved making quilts for family, friends, and ‘Quilts of Valor.’ But her most cherished pastime was spending time with her grandchildren, playing and baking. She will be remembered for her kind, calm, good-natured soul; infectious smile; and quick wit.

Robbie is survived by her husband, Richard Schellenger; children Elizabeth McKeever, Richard Schellenger II, and Robert Schellenger; and her four grandchildren.

We love you Mama, always, and forever!
