Phyllis Dee Haeffner Robinson was born on September 22, 1929, the oldest child of Milton and Alvina Walther Haeffner. She attended grade school in Gasconade, Missouri, and graduated from Hermann High School in 1947.
On February 14, 1948, she was married to Wilbert (Bert) Robinson in Gasconade, Missouri. Phyllis and Bert had one son, Jeffrey Robinson. For many years they owned the Robinson Hotpoint dealership in Hermann. Bert passed away on June 16, 1986.
Phyllis was a member of the Hermann United Methodist Church, where she was an active member of United Methodist Women. She organized and participated in the annual spaghetti supper and many other meals. Any time food was needed, Phyllis was there to help cook and serve. She was also an active member of the Hermann Area Hospital Auxiliary and the VFW Auxiliary. She was a volunteer for Hospice and for the Hermann School District. Phyllis was a member of Historic Hermann and a long-time volunteer at the museum and gift shop. She baked hundreds of cookies for fundraisers for the German School Museum.
