Robin Diane Malsack

Robin Diane (Hansen) Malsack, from Kenosha Wisconsin was born on September 17, 1953 and raised in Chicago Illinois. Robin died suddenly at home on January 5, 2022, with her beloved and devoted husband, Mike Malsack, at her side. Robin was eager to share how happy he made her. She loved him wholeheartedly. Robin was often called Robbie by many who loved her. 

Robin was preceded in death by her parents Anne (Edlund) and Martin Hansen and her brother Kenneth (Theresa) Hansen. She leaves behind her brother Gene Hansen.

Robin was proud of her family. She was the beloved mother of Kristen (Eric) Schroeder, Kerri (Don) Scanlan, Kelly Baldwin and Robert (Yvette) Pratl. She was the caring stepmother of Tegan (Michael) Nelson and Tabitha Malsack. Robin was the adoring grandmother to Nicholas (Samantha) Schroeder, Taylor Schroeder, Nathan Pratl, Vinny Schroeder, Justin Pratl, Hannah Schroeder, Alyssa Schroeder, Andrew Baldwin, Jessica Pratl, Ashlyn Baldwin, Donald Scanlan, Ethan Scanlan, Xavier Baldwin, Emerson Baldwin, Duke Scanlan, Kyler (Destiny) Leys, Trista Nelson, Kaden Nelson, Ashton Koop, Mikayla Malsack, Brody Mays, and Gage Mays. Robbie was especially proud to be a great-grandmother to Violet Schroeder and Tatum Leys. 

Robin loved adventure. When she was younger, she worked for Southwest Airlines. She would often decide on a whim to visit a new destination. She loved to travel with friends. 

Robin was an avid reader and although her favorite author was Steven King, she loved to read Winnie the Pooh to her own children when they were very young. In my head, I can still hear her quote Winnie the Pooh as she read, “If there ever comes a day that we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I will stay there forever.” 

Robin was extremely talented and loved to sew and knit. She often shared her beautiful creations with those she loved. Robin often intertwined blue, her favorite color into many of her personalized gifts. She has knit christening outfits for her children and grandchildren, knit blankets for them to take their first trip home from the hospital after they were born, knit personalized sweaters, and even created personalized memory blankets for her young athletes. She added a personalized touch to every situation. 

Mom- “Your life was a blessing, your memory is a treasure, you are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.”

Visitation is on Wednesday, January 12, 2022  from 4:30-6:00 PM with services beginning at 6PM at the Kemper Center located at 6501 Third Avenue, Kenosha Wisconsin.

    I will truly miss you! I’m glad I was able to talk to you while in the hospital. You spirit was amazing and your laugh the same as ever. Give my mom a hug for me! Love, Jenn

  • Carol Tomlinson says:

    Robin brought brightly colored pastel blankets to the hospital to wrap up and bring home my twin daughters. She knitted baptism dresses for her two nieces, Alicha and Lora her godchild, that they wore on March 17, 1974.
    Our prayers and condolences.
