Obituary for Robbie Marie Rodriguez

Robbie Rodriguez, a resident of Dallas, Oregon passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 7th surrounded by her family. She was such a beacon of light & hope during her battle with cancer, she was truly so courageous & inspirational while she fought through every hand she was dealt. Robbie was born on April 6, 1962, in Grants Pass, OR, the daughter of Robert and Janie Brickey. Robbie graduated from North Valley High School in Grants Pass. She worked at her family’s business for a number of years, where she met her future husband, Jim Rodriguez. They were married on July 24, 1982, in Merlin, Oregon. The family relocated to Dallas in 1988 when Jim accepted employment with the Polk Co. Sheriff’s Office.
Robbie began working for Safeway in 1992 and was still currently employed with them as the receiving manager at the time of her passing. Robbie was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother to 3 children & 8 grandchildren who were the light of her life. Her life revolved around her faith in God and her greatest joy came from her family. Robbie had a huge heart for giving to others, she began coaching her boys’ baseball teams and continued coaching softball for numerous years. Over the years she taught 100’s of local Dallas children.
She was involved in the church by being a Sunday School teacher, helped organize vacation bible school, a summer camp counselor and a coordinator in the women’s ministries.
Jim and Robbie honeymooned at Diamond Lake & they began an annual tradition of going there every summer with the family.

Robbie made each holiday special, but Christmas was her absolute favorite. She would decorate the house inside and out. She would listen to Christmas music and watch Christmas movies all year long.
This is such a tremendous loss that will be felt by all she came in contact with. She truly was a pillar that held many things & people together.
She is survived by her husband, Jim, children, Robert, Shane (Allicia), Nikki (Rob), 8 grandchildren, Lexi, Kiarra, Josephina, Morrissey, Lilliana, Easton, Buster, and Orville. She also left behind her fur baby Sami who w2as truly a joy in her life. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Billy Brickey.
