Mrs. Robey was a graduate of Roosevelt Wilson High School, Class of 1955. She was a true, loyal R-W alumnist. She was formerly employed at the Palace Furniture, having then retired from United Hospital Center with 30 years as a Surgery Secretary. She was a member of the R-W High School Mothers Club and Boosters Club.
Mrs. Robey was very involved with crafts. By sponsoring craft shows for 40 years at various schools including Nutter Fort Grade School, R-W High School and RCB High School, she was able to raise thousands of dollars for various clubs and organizations such as athletics and music programs. One of her favorite “gifts” was to craft dolls she called Smiley Face Dolls. Each doll was hand crafted by her and had an amazing likeness of athletes, band members, cheerleaders, and other various student activities. She made these wonderful dolls from 1974 until R-W High School closed.
