MARY ESTHER, Fla. — It is with loving remembrance that the family of Robyn Ann (Adkins) Manger announces her peaceful return home to our Heavenly Father. Robyn, age 53 of Mary Esther, Florida was called home suddenly on May 25, 2017, with her family by her side.

Robyn was born on Jan. 25, 1964, in Lake City, Tennessee, to Billy Joe and Lonnia (Byrd) Adkins. She was a 1982 graduate of Sidney High School in Sidney, Ohio. On Dec. 17, 1982, she married her best friend and soul mate, David Manger, of Botkins, Ohio. Robyn and David spent their 34 years of marriage together traveling and serving in the United States Air Force and raising their four children until retiring in Florida in 2009.

Robyn held many different career positions as she dedicated her time as a military wife. However, her most successful attributes were not found in a profession. Her success was found in the lives she touched and the love she gave as a dedicated and loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

She is preceded in death by her father, Billy Joe Adkins.

Robyn is survived by her husband David; children, Kristi (Jeremy) Spohn, Joshua (Penny) Manger, Sherri Manger and Jenna Manger; grandchildren, Abigail Manger, Pyper Spohn, Aiden Ritch, Evan Manger and was looking forward to the arrival of two new additions. Robyn is also survived by her mother, Lonnia Adkins; and siblings, Pam (Paul) Byszkowski, Bob (Karen) Adkins and Lynn (Gary) Tester; along with many other extended family members who she loved dearly.

It is with the spirit of love, family and friendship that Robyn displayed daily in all the relationships she had, that the family will be holding a celebration of life service on Friday, June 2, 2017, at 11 a.m. with a reception to follow. The family will receive visitors one hour prior to the service. The service will be held at Mary Esther United Methodist Church (MEUMC) located at 703 Miracle Strip Parkway, Mary Esther, Florida.

Flowers may be sent to MEUMC and donations in honor of Robyn may be made to Children in Crisis Inc., 1000 Luke's Way, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32547; Phone 850-864-4242.
