Robin was born on July 21, 1952 in Chicago, IL to Robert and Audry (Olson) Missty.
She passed on to the next life on October 3, 2021 at her home surrounded by her family. Robin was 69 years old.
Robin was playful, active, and full of wanderlust. She approached life with boundless enthusiasm, a kind of childlike wonder that was infectious to everyone she encountered. Ever ready to open her heart to those she loved, Robin will be remembered for her generosity of spirit, her sheer vivacity, and the dark sense of humor she used to shepherd others through difficult times.
Robin Ainley (nee Missty) was the devoted mother of Jessica Ainley; the doting grandmother to her three beautiful grandchildren; a generous and thoughtful aunt to her nephew John Eden; and mischievous rascal to all fortunate enough to cross her path in this short life.
She is survived by her daughter Jessica Ainley, her son in law Jessie Rodriguez, her grandchildren Adia Bokhoven, Alexa Rodriguez, and Isiah Rodriguez, her brother in law Jim Trocki, and her nephew John Eden.
Robin’s unique, vibrant soul will continue to live on in the hearts and minds of those she touched.
