Evelyn Susie Robins, 85, of Marble Hill, Missouri, passed away peacefully at her home on the family farm, on Saturday, July 29, 2023. Evelyn was born on September 25, 1937, in Bessville, Missouri, to the late Luke and Beulah (Butler) Sitze.

Evelyn was raised in Bessville, MO, one of nine children. She attended grade school and graduated from Lutesville High School.

Lawrence Robins and Evelyn Sitze were united in marriage on July 15, 1955. They were married nearly 50 years and raised five wonderful children together: Mark, Vicky, Sandra, Karen and Lori. Lawrence preceded her in death on January 2, 2005.

Evelyn was an avid quilter. She sewed, pieced and embroidered everything from quilts to clothing. She hand-quilted nearly every quilt she made. Evelyn even sewed formal gowns, and dresses for her daughters to wear to proms, and other engagements. Aside from her quilting, Evelyn loved the outdoors. She grew a garden, raked and mowed hay on the farm, and loved to fish. She spent a countless number of hours fishing with her family. Bass fishing was her favorite and always brought a smile to her face.

She attended Old Union Church in Bessville in her younger years with her siblings, and New Salem Baptist Church in Marble Hill in her later years. Evelyn loved to spend time with her family. Her siblings, nieces and her nephews meant a great deal to Evelyn. She was very active with her church families, attending in any function she could to help out. She and her church friends had a quilting guild that met together.
