February 1, 1956 - December 16, 2014
Robin Jayne Anglin, age 58, died at the Christopher House in Austin, Texas, on Tuesday, December 16, 2014 after her 4 year battle with ovarian cancer. Born February 1, 1956, in Bellville, Illinois, to Audie and Wanda Muse Johnson. Robin learned to ride a horse when she was three years old and spent much of her life on the back of one. In fact, she eventually, along with numerous friends, established a therapy riding program called H.E.A.R.T.S. She attended the The University of North Texas and was a member of Pi Beta Phi Sorority. She graduated with a degree in Special Education, taught in various districts including Johnson City ISD and retired last year after 30 years of teaching. Robin had a passion for helping students with autism and other special needs to achieve their goals. Robin’s two daughters, Meghan and Chelsey, were the focus of her attention and love. She prided herself in the accomplishments of both of her girls and occasionally, bragged about being a “Highland Lake Aggie Mom.” She lived in many different places -- Okinawa, Japan, New Hampshire, Richardson, Dripping Springs and Spicewood, TX -- before recently settling in Bryan, TX where she tried to relax, complete her “Bucket” list and spend time with her angel granddaughter Halle. Halle was “The lifeline that I needed to keep trying to stay alive.” Robin will be especially remembered for her quick wit, spirit of adventure, love of horses, white wine socializing, and the tenaciousness that allowed her to be successful in many diverse endeavors. Her favorite saying was “Cowgirl UP!” Robin never gave up on herself or anyone else around her. Survivors include her Daughters Meghan Harlow and Chelsey Harlow-Dawes, Son-in-Law Rox Dawes, Granddaughter Halle Dawes, Father Audie Johnson, Brother Audie Johnson, Sister Dana Johnson and many cousins. Robin was preceded in death by her mother, Wanda. Robin was surrounded by friends- Her horse buddies Carol and Carolyn, Johnson City “Peeps,” Her Ya’Ya’s, The Cedar Creek Gang, and many students who have kept in touch with her over the years after their graduations. She was loved and will be missed. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 10 a.m., Saturday, December 27, 2014, at the H.O.M.E. Church in Johnson City, TX. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations made to the Christopher House in Austin.
