Robin A. Pritchard

She married Don Pritchard on Aug. 6, 1977, at a ceremony, in South Bend.

Robin enjoyed many things in her life, she enjoyed traveling, time spent on the boat, trips to the casino, watching the hummingbirds visit the feeders, but most of all she enjoyed time spent with family and friends. She enjoyed visits on the back deck that included a cup of coffee and good conversation, cheering her children and her grandchildren on at their sporting events, and family vacations where everyone was together. She is a tough act to follow, as fun as she was, Robin was the matriarch of the family. She embodied the title “Boss,” and ran a tight ship.

She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother Michael “Mick” Dittmar.

Robin will be greatly missed by her husband, Don, of Buchanan; her children, Kaycee Wagley, of Niles, Pepper (William) Linn, of Buchanan, five grandchildren, Ashley (Gage) Glidden, of Buchanan, Chelsey Bennett, of Buchanan, Allison Wagley, of Niles, Kaleb Pritchard, of Buchanan, and Caiden Wagley, of Buchanan; two great-granddaughters, Harper and Hazel Glidden.
