Robbie was born in Paterson, New Jersey on June 26, 1937 to Evelyn (Cowan) and John Meima, She died on November 25, 2017. Robbie was proud of her Dutch heritage and was an avid collector of Delft. She loved fashion and jewelry (thank you QVC and HSN). We are sure she will be the best dressed Angel in Heaven. Even though she lived in Florida for the past 30 years she was a Jersey Girl at heart. Going down the shore was one of her favorite places to be. Robbie was a homemaker in her earlier years. She was a waitress at the Windlass Restaurant in Lake Hopatcong which was her favorite place to work. She also enjoyed working as a secretary at Dover Business College and upon moving to Florida she was a Church Secretary at the First United Methodist Church in Inverness, FL. Robbie and Jack moved from Lake Hopatcong, NJ to Homosassa in 1986. They built a beautiful home and began their retirement. Robbie did volunteer work with various organizations within Citrus county prior to settling into retirement life. Robbie was preceded in death by her beloved husband Jack Kearns, her sister Evlyn Skurow, her parents and a son Drew Tate. Survivors include her three daughters, Deborah (Michael) Cusack of Rockaway, NJ; Dellora (Richard) Norris of Lake Hopatcong, NJ and Dolores (Jeff) Crooke of King William, VA; four sons, Donald (Terri) Tate; Dennis (Sue) Tate, both of Lake Hopatcong; David (Dana) Tate of Sparta, NJ and James (Mindy) Kearns of Salem, NY; 19 Grandchildren and 12 Great Grandchildren. The family requests that expressions of sympathy take the form of donations to the Hospice House of Citrus and the Nature Coast (PO Box 641270 Beverly Hills, FL 34464).
