RobbieMae Palliser Justus

RobbieMae Palliser Justus transferred from time to eternity on Saturday, 8 July 2022 from pancreatic cancer.  Robbie was born in New London, Conn. on August 19, 1946.  Robbie leaves behind her husband, Douglas Justus, daughter Joy Peek & husband John Peek, grandson Walter Potts, great-granddaughter Rosalie Potts, brother Noble Palliser, wife Joyce and several nieces.  In 1975 Robbie’s daughter Wendy Justus, preceded Robbie’s transfer and both are now living face-to-face with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Robbie & Wendy are living a life without pain, suffering or the concerns of us remaining here on earth.

Robbie and Doug met in 1964 at the New London Christian Serviceman’s Center in Jeremy Hill, Connecticut.  This unlikely couple (R&D) were married 6 months later and enjoyed each other’s company for 58 years.

Upon hearing of her cancer, Robbie said to me, “If this the way the Lord uses to take me home, I can accept it.” On the morning of her passing Robbie said that she wished she had the strength to go downstairs & watch a DVD concerning the teaching of the Word of God.

As per Robbie’s request, her body has been donated to the University Of Texas College Of Medicine.  Instead of flowers, a gift to R. B. Thieme jr. Bible Ministries, Ber. Ch. or the University Of Texas College Of Medicine is preferred.  Robbie’s Celebration Of Live will be held on Saturday, July 16, 2022, at 10:00 am at Crowder Funeral Home – Chapel, Webster, TX.


  1. I know the grief you are experiencing Doug having gone through the same thing when I lost Claire five years ago. The Bible doesn’t tell us to not grieve. It does tell us to not grieve as those who have no hope (confidence). Focus on Gods marvelous promises knowing you will see her again one day soon.

  3. My Aunt Robbie was such a blessing and lived such a faith-filled life! I will treasure all of the sweet, FUN memories I have had with her.
    When I moved to Houston for college, she and my Uncle Doug took me under their wing and showed me around the city. Through the years we shared so many family get togethers – Aunt Robbie always knew how to make those times extra special. And oh, the many, many laughs! I will always be able to hear her laughs and giggles, and am sure she continues to laugh in her forever home.
    She had such a positive outlook on life because she had the JOY of Jesus! If you are reading this and don’t know Him, please seek Him out. You, too, can have the incredible joy that my aunt had, even through tough circumstances.
    Uncle Doug, Joy, John, Walter and family, I know you will miss her so very much. I will miss her, too. I’ll be praying for your hearts. Love and hugs to each of you.

  6. I had the very good fortune of working with Robbie for several years. We had an enjoyable and productive relationship, and I got to know her well. I liked and admired Robbie mostly for her exceptional human qualities. She was gracious, sweet, kind, polite, mild-mannered, peace-loving, respectful, compassionate, caring and cheerful. The world was a better place with her in it. May she rest in peace.

  7. Robbie was a beloved member of our water aerobics class for many years. She had all the wonderful qualities that Mr. Elkins described, and that great laugh that niece
    Cathy mentioned that showed she knew how to enjoy life. With real JOY.
    I’m so sorry for your loss, Doug and family. Knowing she’s in a better place is a comfort. May she enjoy her eternity in God’s presence.

  10. Doug sincere condolences. Robbie touched many lives in the best way. Beautiful woman. I am grateful for her warm friendship, laughter we shared playing cards and water aerobics in the pool. She was a great instructor whilst we stumbled giggling at our stretches and balancing. Robbie braved her illness. She is peaceful in the Lords house. Be brave remember the happiest lifetime memories that will get you through these difficult days. Sending healing prayers comforting hugs to you, Joy and family.

  11. Doug & Joy We only knew Robbie for 60 years, We remember her playing the marimba at Jeremy Hill while wearing her beret. It was great being her friend for all of that time. The memories are too numerous to mention. She was always happy and upbeat. We will miss her until it is our time to meet her again in Heaven.

  12. Doug, I will miss my friend dearly. She was always a bright spot in my day. I am happy that she and Wendy will finally be together. Peace and comfort to you and your family.
