Preceding her in death is her son, Spencer McIllwain, father, Tony Baine, mother, Dorothy Bowen Baine, and her niece, Natalie Baine. Robin and Rick were high school sweethearts and were married in March 1977 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They have been together since they were 16 years old. Both Robin and Rick graduated from Tulsa Union High School in 1973. She is a member of Saint Bernard's Catholic Church. Robin had an abundance of faith which saw her through the loss of Spencer. Once Robin realized how sick she was, she came to terms with it knowing that she would be reunited with Spencer, Mom, Dad, and Natalie. Owner of Property Solutions Homes of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Robin loved flipping homes and re-purposing furniture. She also enjoyed water-color painting with her mother. She loved traveling with her many friends on cruises to exotic destinations. Most of all she loved being with her family and friends. She was a favorite aunt of her nieces and nephews, and she especially loved the babies. The viewing will be held at Fitzgerald Southwood Colonial Chapel, on Thursday, December 16, 2021, at 5:00 to 7:00pm with a rosary following. A celebration of Robin's life will be held at Saint Bernard of Clairvaux Catholic Church with the rite of Christian burial mass on Friday, December 17, 2021, at 11:00 am. It will be immediately followed by a graveside burial ceremony at Floral Haven Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Robin's name to the American Cancer Society.
