Jeanene L. Toombs Robb, a loving woman known for her dedication to her family and her passion for reading, passed away on February 5, 2024, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She was born on September 15, 1946, in Vine Grove, Kentucky.
Jeanene's warm personality and kind heart will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. What Mimi loved most in life was spending time with her granddaughters and sharing her love of reading with them. She cherished their visits to the library, where they would explore books together. Jeanene had a voracious appetite for reading and would immerse herself in anything she could get her hands on – books, articles, or even newspapers. She particularly enjoyed the Thursday recipes article and the Sunday Superquiz.
Often, she would sit outside, basking in the sun's warmth while engrossed in a book, occasionally drifting off into a peaceful nap. Jeanene found joy and contentment in life's simple pleasures. Afternoon bike rides, cooking delicious meals from scratch, baking mouthwatering treats, sewing intricate patterns, tending to her blooming flowers and garden – these were all activities that brought her immense happiness. Her kitchen always boasted fresh flowers cut from her own garden; a testament to her love of sharing the beauty of nature with others. Everyone who knew Jeanene eagerly awaited the delectable cookies she baked with precision and the homemade jar of satsuma jelly that everyone fought over.
Her conversations often revolved around fond memories of her childhood and the experiences gained during extensive travels and living in various places. Jeanene cherished every chapter of her life – from reflecting on college years to recounting stories about the bond she shared with her family. Ambitious, hardworking, dedicated, determined – these were qualities that defined Jeanene throughout her life. Though she could be stubborn at times, her strength and resilience always shone through. She was a remarkable woman, mother, and grandmother who selflessly devoted her time to provide for and help others. Even if she had the tendency to be chronically late for everything, her commitment to others was unwavering. Jeanene's smile, laughter, and presence will be greatly missed by her beloved family and friends.
She leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion that will forever remain in the hearts of her surviving family members: her sons John Scott Robb, Joel Frazier Robb, and Jesse Elliott Robb; granddaughters Samantha, Adaline, and Teigan Robb; as well as a large extended family, relatives, and friends. In this moment of loss, let us celebrate the remarkable life of Jeanene L. Toombs Robb. Her spirit will continue to inspire us all as we remember the kindness she showed to everyone she encountered.
