Aimee Robillard went to be with the Lord peacefully with her family by her side after a long battle with leiomyosarcoma. Aimee was born the baby of 9 children in Minneapolis, MN. Her children, grandchildren, and great grandchild were her pride and joy. She loved the Lord, sewing, gardening, cooking, shopping, volunteer work and of course chatting with her family and friends.
Aimee was so brave all through her 2 year fight with her disease. Never once complaining of why it had to be her. It was her strong faith in the lord that she was able to do this. Her family was her life, children, grandchildren and Great grandaughter. Aimee waited for her girls to get in from out of town to say her final good-bye. She is a true inspiration to us all.
Aimee Robillard was preceded in death by her husband of 20 years Fred Robillard, sister Elaine Wedgewood, son Lorenzo Lloyd Gladson, grandson Gabriel Jouras, and great granddaughter Holly Henricksen. Aimee is survived by her children, Jerry (Gladson) Robillard, Bill (Gladson) Robillard, Elizabeth (Darrell) Hill, Marjorie Jouras, Marlo Binkley, Kimberly (Kevin) Brennan Kathy (Travis) Cory, Lorenzo (Susan) Gladson, 19 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild. Brothers Ray, Jack, Richard, Doug, and David Ranallo, sisters Marjorie Flatum, and Dorthy Vevea and her dear friends Loy Sparling and Shannon McConnell.
A special thanks to Susan Gladson for her loving and unconditional care she gave our mother in her last days.
