Condolences for Roberta (Robbie) Lee Wimmer
I was so saddened to hear about Robbie’s death. She was a good person and wonderful friend. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
We are so sorry to hear of Robbie’s passing. We missed our new years call. I’ll miss so many things about her, especially her laugh, sense of humor and honesty. I could always depend on Robbie for an honest opinion. Blessing to her family. Love, Joyce and Pat.
I was so saddened to learn of Robbie’s passing. She was a wonderful friend to me in junior high and high school in Minden and all the fun activities we shared at our Methodist church in Minden. So many memories that make me smile! And Robbie had the BEST smile! Her entire face lit up whenever she smiled, which was often; her eyes even twinkled when she smiled and laughed. Robbie will be so very missed by everyone that she knew. Sadness, tears, and heartbreak are with us all during these days, but eventually those feelings and tears will one day turn into smiles as we cherish her memory. My most sincere sympathy to her family; know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. And may you feel God’s comfort and peace in your hearts.
Robbie was a warm and funny cousin,sister, mother, grandmother, aunt etc. Always loved stopping in Minden with Mom and talking around the kitchen table and later meeting in Kearney for lunch or dinner. Have missed seeing her the last few years. Much love to her family

Hi Sandy, I want you to know how sorry I am that you lost your sister so unexpectedly. I met her at Robs Memorial I sat with her for awhile. She is a special lady, just like you. I know you will miss her. My prayers are with you and your family. I miss you all. Love Anne.
Robbie was always so kind in extending her hospitality when we were at NWU. I feel fortunate that I got to know her and her legacy through her family and animals.
I am so sorry for your loss.
Dear Sandy, Bruce, and family members,
I am so sorry that you have had to endure the untimely tragedy of losing Robbie. I wish I knew words that could help you heal. I hope you’ll find great comfort with your dogs and with the knowledge of Robbie’s making others’ lives better, especially animals’ lives.
Thinking of you,
It saddened me a great deal to hear of Robbie’s passing last January. I had known her since we were classmates in Mrs. Gleason’s 4th grade classroom. Robbie was one of the first classmates to befriend me, the shy, “new girl” in school. She continued to be a kind, gentle, reliable friend throughout our school years. I last saw Robbie at my mom’s funeral in 2005 and was greatly moved and touched by her presence. I now live in Minnesota, and regrettably, will be unable to attend Robbie’s service. But I pray that God’s Holy Spirit will bring comfort and peace to Robbie’s family and bless them with sweet memories!
