Robin A. Byrnes, 64, of rural Chetek, Wis., died Sunday, Nov. 10, 2019, at Pioneer Health & Rehab in Prairie Farm, Wis.
She was born July 4, 1955, to Joseph and Lorrayne “Brenda” (Heacox) Byrnes at Barron, Wis., where she was raised and attended school. She graduated from Barron High School in 1973. She traveled around before settling in Texas, where she spent a significant amount of her life before moving back home to Wisconsin in 2001. Robin loved animals, especially her cat, Prissy. You never knew what you would find when you walked into her and Richard’s home. It could be baby chickens or pheasants keeping warm by the wood stove. She also enjoyed thrift sales, reading, working word find puzzles, playing guitar and being in nature.
Robin is survived by her significant other, Richard Tiegs, of rural Chetek; sister-in-law Sheryl Byrnes, of Barron; nieces Stephanie (Dedrick) Byrnes-Hampton, of Cameron, Wis., and Candace Byrnes (Philip Dobosz), of Rice Lake, Wis.; and many grandnieces and nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Gregory Byrnes.
A memorial service will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 20, at Rausch-Lundeen Funeral Home in Dallas, Wis., with Rev. Susan Oeffler officiating. Friends may call for the hour prior to the service at the funeral home. A private interment will take place at a later date at Wayside Cemetery in Barron.
Arrangements are with Rausch-Lundeen Funeral Homes, Dallas and Cameron.
