Robin L. Stoikes

Robin Lynn Stoikes, age 58, passed away with family by her side on Friday, May 4, 2018, at her home due to Glioblastoma. She was born in Monroe on June 11, 1959, to her parents, Robert and Virginia (Maddrell) Lovelace.

Robin grew up in Woodford, WI, and graduated from Black Hawk High School. She then continued her education at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, earning degrees in Sociology and Human Resource Management. Robin married Timothy Stoikes in 1989, and the couple made their home in the Belleville area where they raised their two sons. She worked in human resources for the State of Wisconsin for many years, including the Department of Corrections, Department of Revenue, and the Department of Work Force Development. Robin loved to garden, ride horses, read, and travel. Her most favorite times were those spent with her family and friends. Robin's quick wit will be greatly missed.

Robin is survived by her husband, Timothy; sons, Eric and Andrew; father and step-mother, Robert and Joan Lovelace; sister, Penny (Eric) Brummel; brothers, Scott (Penny) Lovelace and Tracy (Jason Sword) Lovelace. She is further survived by her mother-in-law, Janet Stoikes; sisters-in-law, Cathy Halpin and Julie (Doug) Sutter; brothers-in-law, Jeff (Jane) Stoikes and Jim (Judy) Stoikes; nieces, nephews, and friends.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Virginia Lovelace; father-in-law, Arnold Stoikes; brother-in-law, Robert Halpin; and her grandparents.
