On September 26, 1986 Robyne married the love of her life, David Powell. In 1993 the young couple would make their way to Lawrenceville, Georgia where they would continue to grow and raise their family. Robyne was very blessed to be able to stay at home and be a remarkable mother raising her two children Michael & Kayla. Her favorite memories raising her family were the weekends they would spend enjoying activities on the lake boating and camping and attending her children's sporting and school curriculum functions. In her spare time she could be found scrapbooking, playing with her two precious dogs, Milo and Heidi, and spending time with the people she loved. Robyne was a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, and friend; she will certainly be missed by all who knew and loved her.
