Jean Marie Robinson, 54, died Friday, May 31, 2019, at Unity Point – St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids following a long illness.

A Celebration of Life service will be held 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, June 5, 2019, at Faith Bible Church, 1800 46th St. NE, Cedar Rapids.

Jean was born January 3, 1965, in Monticello, Iowa, the daughter of George Fredrick Robinson, Sr. and Ida Mae Broadwater. She graduated from Washington High School in Vinton in 1984. After graduation, she moved to Ottumwa, where she had her daughter, Dawn. She did various jobs. She worked assembling items for the holidays, went to work transferring medical files to disks and babysitting.

Jean enjoyed doing many things like crocheting, fishing, playing her keyboard and playing cards. She was also a practical joker and played jokes on anyone she could.

The thing that Jean liked most was spending time with her family and friends.

Jean is survived by her significant other, Collin Olmstead, of Cedar Rapids; her parents, John and Ida Kotouc, of Cedar Rapids; a daughter, Dawn Warner of Marion; two brothers: Steve Robinson of Davenport and George (Jen) Robinson, Jr. of Flippin, AR; three sisters: Judy (Billy) Coffman of Harrison, AR; Sally (John) Lee of Minnesota; and Jamie Robinson of Cedar Rapids.

She was preceded in death by her father, George, Sr. and her grandparents, Harley and Bessie Robinson and Harvey and Florence Huelsenbeck.
