Roberta (Robin) Marlo Peterson, 78, of Kansas City, Kansas passed away peacefully at Advent Health Shawnee Mission Medical Center surrounded by all five of her children on February 2, 2022, at 11:05 am.
Robin was born on July 29th, 1943, in Richmond, Virginia to Anthony and Delores Novak. They moved to Kansas City, Kansas shortly afterward and remained for life. She attended Northwest Middle School and then Wyandotte High School where she graduated in 1961. She fell in love with Michael James Peterson and the two were married on September 7th, 1963, until his passing on February 18, 2014. Five children were born between 1964 and 1971 and they were Robins world. In 1979, Mike and Robin purchased the Wyandotte Echo Newspaper and Mom became the publisher until 1994. All five of her children and numerous neighborhood friends were employed each Tuesday night to put the newspaper together and mail out. During the 1990s and into the 2000s, Robin devoted her time to watching and babysitting all her grandchildren. She would take each grandchild on shopping sprees for their birthdays, she made the "worlds greatest hot dogs" during the summers by the pool, and unlimited rented movies for the grand kids to watch during the winter. Robin never turned a guest away and her door was open anytime to anyone. No one was turned away without Robin making you feel at home and loved. She was most proud of her husband Mike, her 5 children and families and her countless friends who loved and adored her. Her laugh, her upbeat mood, and her reassurance to all those that difficult times would always pass, will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her brother, Tony Novak and his family, her 5 children, Anita Peterson, children Marlo and Tim Green, Nick, and Tony Clark. Ann Golubski, married to Fred, children Paul, Brian, Michael, and Mark. Margaret Shriver, married to Kevin, children Jake and Jessica Shriver. Joe Peterson; children Jacob and Michael Peterson. Molly Watskey, married to Chad; children Joseph, Jillian, and John Watskey. And her great grandchildren Christian, Maggie, and Jimmy Green.
Visitation will be February 9th, 2022, at St. Peters Cathedral. Visitation will be from 9:00 am to 11:00 am followed by Mass and then Burial at Gates of Heaven.
The Peterson family would like to express our gratitude to the amazing staff at Advent Health Shawnee Mission.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to be made to Sister Servants of Mary.
