Waneita Robins, 93

| May 25, 2023 1:00 AM

Waneita went to meet her Jesus quietly in the early morning hours of May 3, 2023. She was at her home in Moyie Springs. She was born Oct. 3, 1929, in Long Prairie, Minn.

She had a smile for everyone and never met a stranger! She led a long and blessed life. She was predeceased by her husband of 61 years, Emmett and three younger siblings. She is survived by her children, Tanya and Bob Pearce, Keven and Linaka Robins, and Elaine Robins. She has one surviving sister, Val Harrington; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A graveside service, officiated by her nephew, the Rev. Steve Berry, will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 27, 2023, at Paradise Valley Cemetery. The service will be followed by a meal and time of sharing at Mountain Springs Church in Bonners Ferry, Idaho, beginning at 2 p.m. Both events are open to her family and many friends.

The family requests remembrances of her be in the form of donations to the Teen Challenge Ministry in Spokane, Wash., which was dear to her heart.

Friends and family are invited to sign her online guest book at
