On May 26, 2013, our little angel spread her wings for her final journey. Born July 24, 2000, Robyn Leigh Blemke came to us through foster care, and stole our hearts.
From an early age, Robyn showed excitement for life's challenges and had passions that were contagious to family and friends.
Robyn hated to disappoint. Coaches, teachers, siblings or parents, she always did what was needed as to not disappoint.
Her greatest passion was gymnastics. She loved to win but what drove her was the desire to improve. After receiving low scores on the beam for two years in a row, she made a commitment to do better.
In February, with the help of her coaches at Gymnastics Inc., she received a 9.4 at one meet and a 9.25 at the state meet on the beam and was so proud of the hard work she had done. She also hoped her coaches were proud of her effort.
Robyn loved to go camping with the family, especially to the ocean to go clam digging where she always brought home a bucket of shells and stones she found interesting.
Robyn loved biology and the sciences and wanted to become a surgeon so she could help people.
Robyn was loved and will be missed by her parents, Debbie and Jerry Blemke; brothers, Elias Blemke, Sean Fenderson and Sean Clark; sisters, Meghan Blemke and Carrie Ferguson; grandmother, Edith Greer; uncles, Dave (Yvonne) Greer and Mark Greer; aunts, Cristina Sullivan and Candace King; and nine uncles, aunts and more than 40 nieces and nephews throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota; her teammates at Gymnastic Inc.; her classmates at North Pole Middle School; and all of her 4-H friends.
Services will be held Saturday afternoon, June 1, 2013, in the Westmark Gold Room. Check Robyn's Facebook page for the exact times.
In lieu of flowers, the family will be accepting monetary donations at the service in honor of Robyn to support the North Pole Middle School library, 4-H and Gymnastics Inc.
