Service Program

MILNER – Wendell Eugene Robinson of Milner, Idaho, passed away peacefully at St. Luke’s Regional Medical Center in Boise, Idaho, with his loving family by his side, on March 6, 2023.

He was born in Kensington, Kansas, March 12, 1941, to Clarence Cecil and Merle Foster Robinson and moved to Twin Falls, Idaho, shortly thereafter. At that time, the family became faithful members of Bethel Temple Apostolic Church. His unwavering faith helped him to be the best person the Lord expected him to be.

In 1961 he married Priscilla Roberts who preceded him in death in 1968. He married Carol Warr on March 5, 1972. Prior to his life with Carol, Wendell served proudly as a United States Marine and later in the Army National Guard for many years.

Dad enjoyed spending time with his children and encouraged them to live life to their greatest potential. He was proud of his six children and made sure people knew it.

Throughout his life, Dad enjoyed music and had a voracious appetite for reading (and food). As he grew older, he was able to dedicate more time to his wife, children, and animals. Dad loved the farm life and would spend time working outdoors and tending to his animals and pets. He was a social butterfly and a member of the local American Legion and Lions Club.

Wendell is survived by his beautiful bride, Carol, of 51 years; his children, Jennifer (Darrell) McFarland, Wendell II (Shantala) Robinson, Amy Robinson (Larry Matthews), John Robinson (Joshua Coltrain), Julie (Aaron) Christiansen, and Andrew (Nikki) Robinson; 20 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and his in-laws, Edward (Ann) Warr, Cherie (Ken) Warr, and Paul (Charlene) Warr.

In addition to his first wife, Priscilla, he was preceded in death by his parents; his three siblings; and his in-laws, Farnum and Irene Warr.

The funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 18, at Bethel Temple Apostolic Church, located at 929 Hankins Road, in Twin Falls. Interment will follow at Pella Cemetery at 400 South 361 West, of Burley.

Family and friends will be received from 5 until 7 p.m. Friday, March 17, at Rasmussen-Wilson Funeral Home, 1350 E. 16th St., in Burley.

Per Dad’s request, memorials may be made to Canyon Mennonite Church Youth Group or Bethel Temple Church Youth Group.

Carol I'm so sorry for your loss. I loved see you and Wendell around town. Everyone could see how much you both adored each other. Having you both at my wedding was a blessing I will always cherish. We love you. And pray for you and your family.
From Dawn (Carl) Spurgeon :
Carol and all my childhood life long friends. I am so sorry to hear of Wendell's passing. You all made a life long impact in my life. One memory I have never forgotten... I was over for a sleepover and the kids asked if I had ever tried C-rations. Of course I hadn't even heard of them before. So I tried them and I hated them, but I was polite and choked them down. Never ate another C-rations again. Once I joined the Army, I was sure thankful that the C-rations had been upgraded to MRE's and tasted better. But eating MRE's often brought back that fond memory. Wendell will be missed, our sincere condolences to the whole family. "Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world .

From Jon and Gea Warr:
Robinson Family - Our thoughts and prayers are with you all in your time of loss. Your father was a great man with a great sense of humor. I’ll always remember his wry smile when cracking a joke and the burlap covered mason jar of coffee (the original cold brew) he’d carry out with him to the tractor in the morning. I trust he is with God in heaven having a good ol’ time.

Uncle Wendell was a great man! I got to live with him & family for about a year in 1976. He always loved to joke around. Kinda like Jerry Lewis. He also was a great teacher and mentor. I had a great time that year. I wish I could have gotten to see him before he passed away. I did speak with him about couple of weeks before he passed. R. I.P. Uncle Wendell
