Obituary for Kristine Helen Robards

Kristine Helen (Schroen) Robards was born December 10,1948 and entered into Heaven on February 5, 2021 at her home in Pope County with her husband by her side. Kris loved the Lord and was a Christian, she always helped those in need and supported many ministries. Kris had the most dazzling smile and told everyone she met to call her “Granny.” Originally from Grass Lake, MI Kris and her Husband John moved to southern Illinois and resided here for the last 25+ years. Her passion was horseback riding all over the Shawnee Forest and blessing the lives of others through her dog business Double R Doodles. Kris is survived by her husband of 50 years John A. Robards, siblings Frederick (Barbara) Schroen, John Schroen, Heidi (Mike) Gerber, daughter-in-law Angela Robards, father-in-law Roland Robards, grandchildren Aimee (Rob) Hall, Emma Robards, Garrett Robards, great grandsons Jase Little, Robby Hall, many nieces and nephews and countless other dog and horse loving friends. Kris was preceded in death by her precious children, daughter Amy Sue and son Jake Robards, parents Herman and Barbara Schroen, mother-in-law Donna Robards, and nephew Alex Schroen. She had grade 3 benign meningioma brain tumors for the past 10 years. Most would think she ‘lost her battle’ but that is not true. She is rejoicing now because she WON her battle and is in heaven. There will be a celebration of life and luncheon at a later date when the weather is warmer. Contributions may be made to Hospice of Southern Illinois, 204 Halfway Rd. Marion, IL 62959. We love you Granny!
