In Memory of Robin Matthys-Arnold

December 27, 1965 - April 21, 2022

Robin Elaine Matthys-Arnold, 56, of Cumberland passed April 21, 2022.

Robin’s donations to date have saved the lives of three people, plus two more who will receive the life changing gift of sight, and more are in line to be blessed by her other donations.

She was born December 27, 1965 in Denver, Colorado. She was married in Cumberland, WI on March 16, 2002 to Brian Arnold.

Robin was a Cumberland bus driver for 17 years and changed the lives of everyone who got on her bus. She later went on to work for Puris in Turtle Lake where she continued to touch the lives many of her coworkers.

Robin had the most giving heart. She could read a person, and know how to handle a situation. She would make herself feel uncomfortable to make you feel comfortable. She has a way of making you feel like the most special person in her life by taking the time to do something as little as writing something on a photo you sent her years ago and sending it to you in the perfect moment. She was loving, caring, witty, creative, concerned, supportive, strong, funny, and yes a little spirited when she felt the occasion. We've all been touched by the loyalty, the support, or the firmness in how she handled things. She brought families all together, and continues to do that even today. It was amazing to see how she brightened a crowd, and how she could take control of a situation, without really taking control. Among kids, her smile and soft caring attitude brought kids out and they surrounded her. Among adults, her firm, stone faced look made you think about what you were doing. And that little smirk, made you know she had your back, but she meant business. She would over come her fears long enough to show us things are possible. She had an amazing voice, an eye for taking pictures, and a creative heart.

She is survived by her husband, Brian Arnold; children: Matthew (Jenn) Arnold, Melissa (Jeff) Terhark, Robert (Jenna) Arnold, Nathan (Jenae) Arnold, Michael (Desiree Ries) Matthys, Taylor (Erika) Matthys; grandchildren: Michael, Kodie, Peydon, Colton, Kendall, Adelyn, Milo, Olivia, and Harper; grand-dogs; siblings, Troy Saxbury, Jamie Hurst, Gaylene Monson; her mother, Lynda Bean; nieces, nephews, and many other dear family and friends.

Robin was preceded in death by her dad, Duane Saxbury; and her father, Bill Randall.

Funeral services will be held at 11 AM Friday April 29, 2022, at First Lutheran Church in Cumberland with Pastor Tim Schmidt officiating. Pallbearers are Matthew, Jeff, Robert, Nathan, Michael, and Taylor. Honorary pallbearers are Jenn, Melissa, Jenna, Jenae, Desiree, and Erika. Visitation will be from 4:00 - 7:00 PM Thursday, April 28, 2022.

Skinner Funeral Home of Cumberland is serving the family.
