Beverly Robb

July 5, 1931 — September 10, 2018

Beverly Jean Reed was born July 5, 1931 in Clark, South Dakota.  She was the daughter of Frank and Marie (Bates) Reed.  Beverly grew up in Clark, where she also graduated from high school.  She attended South Dakota State University in Brookings, and during this time she met the love of her life, Walter Robb.  They met on a blind date and they were united in marriage on September 10, 1950 in Clark.  Bev gave birth to her first two children, Linda and Jeff while living in Brookings.  Later the family moved to Sturgis, where Jo and Dean were born, and then Mankato MN, where John joined the family. 

In 1971, Walter and Beverly opened Belle Fourche Railroad Salvage and eventually they expanded to outlets located in Colorado, Wyoming, Texas, and three more locations in South Dakota.  Eventually the name of the business changed to Robb Inc. and for many years Walt and Bev worked together and enjoyed watching the success of their business. 

Bev went on a million adventures with her husband and together they have a very special marriage.  She never second-guessed Walt and he always took great care of his bride.  Bev died on September 10th, 2018 at the Spearfish Hospital in Spearfish, South Dakota.  That day was her and Walter’s 68th wedding anniversary. 

Bev has been a private person most of her life.  She loved her home and her family very much.  To honor Bev and the way God made her, a private funeral will be held at the house on September 17th.  Burial will take place in Pine Slope Cemetery, in Belle Fourche.  Following, an open house celebration for friends and family will take place at the house from 12:30 to 2:00 pm. 

Beverly is survived by her children, Linda (John) Arleth of Belle Fourche, Jeff (Gretchen) Robb on Denver Colorado, Jo Robb-Peterson of Belle Fourche, Dean (Elizabeth) Robb of Denver Colorado, John Robb of Belle Fourche; 13 grandchildren; and 19 great grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Walter in 20117, grandsons, Michael and Jason Robb, and brother, Kenny Reed.

Bev’s family is grateful for the excellent care received from Veronica, Donny, and Tyrel of the Belle Fourche Ambulance, as well as Dr. Kevin Simonelic and Deb Alickson.  They all went above and beyond expectations.

Memorials are preferred to the American Heart Association.
