Roberta "Robin" Arleen Larson, 66, passed away peacefully on Monday May 25, 2020, at the hospital in Rapid City, S.D.

She was born on September 3, 1953, in Greybull, Wyo., to Jimmy and Ruth (Norris) Decker and had one brother, Bob Decker. She married Scott Larson on February 12, 1977, and had their son, Saul Larson, on January 19, 1978, where they lived in Thermopolis, Wyo. In 1991, they moved to Newcastle, Wyo., where she lived the remainder of her days. She worked at Little One's Childcare doing something she always loved, working with children. Robin lived life to the fullest.

Her most favorite hobby was being with her grandchildren. You would most likely see her at a wrestling tournament where her son and grandsons have all been wrestlers. She also loved going to football games, volleyball games, and art shows to cheer on all her grandkids because she was their biggest fan. She was known by half of Newcastle as 'Grandma,' 'Mom,' or 'Miss Robin.' She had a huge heart and loved so many children. She was a great teacher and found a way to teach a lesson out of every situation.

She is survived by her son, Saul (Debbi) Larson; adopted son, JR (Tera) Dawson; brother, Bob (Amy) Decker; grandkids, Ricky, Cadence and Scott Larson and Alyssa, Trayton, Johnna and Asic Dawson.

Robin was preceded in death by her dad, Jimmy Decker; mom, Ruth Decker; and husband, Scott Larson.
