Grace Darlene Robbins

Palm Desert - Grace Darlene Robbins was born to Gustaf Albert Johnson and Amanda Christina Peterson on April 23, 1927 in Pocatello, Idaho. One of seven children, she was adored by her entire family, and not just because she was the baby. Darlene was blessed with remarkable gifts, and she shared them freely. Her bright mind and endearing ways brought her many friends, and she was admired for her musical talent, writing skills, and teaching ability. Over the years, she won a full-ride scholarship to Stanford, became a concert violinist, worked as an accountant, served in numerous church callings, created a successful blog, and raised a wonderful family. Darlene was loved by all who knew her.

Darlene, a long-time resident of Palm Desert, died on November 5, 2018, at the age of 91. She is survived by husband, Richard D. Robbins; daughter, Nancy Cathey (Charles); daughter, Susan Anderson (David); daughter, Nikki Blake (Perry); daughter, Jayne Hofhine (Mike); and son, Richard Noyes Jr. (Stacy).
