She had a big heart, and she lived to be happy.

Robbin Huff, 37, of Bethany; wife of Ronald Huff; stepmother of Corey and Matthew Huff; daughter of Richard and Barbara Buchholtz; sister of Richeal Thatcher and Rhonda Bartlebaugh, both of Oklahoma City Renée Buchholtz of New Orleans, LA, and Richard Buchholtz of Saint Louis, MO; loan officer, Federal Employees Credit Union.

“She was ready to start her family,” said husband Ronald Huff. Robbin and Ronald were expecting their first child, a girl to be named Amber Denise, in June 1995. “She always wanted kids,” said Robbin’s sister Richeal Thatcher.

She had three sisters and a brother herself, and each Sunday afternoon, Robbin, Rhonda, and Richeal gathered with their families at their parents’ for dinner. “We are a family that meets on Sundays,” said Rachel. Robbin and her husband bowled in a league with Richeal and her spouse, boated at Lake Thunderbird (“She was my driver while I skied,” said Ronald), and country and western dances (they met at a country dance). They were married in March 1991. Robbin spent her time at home in her flower beds tending to her morning glories and mums; she cross-stitched, decorated cakes, and liked to do crafts. A people person, she never met a stranger. “She would talk to people at the checkout stand,” said Ronald. “She had a big heart, and she lived to be happy,” said Richeal.
