Robin Dawne Maibach, 58, passed away on January 12, 2023 in Wadsworth, Ohio.
Robin was born in Wadsworth, Ohio on August 1, 1964 to Mary and Robert Maibach. She moved to Houston, Texas with her mother when she was 12 years old and remained there most of her life. At a young age her father instilled a love of horses that grew as fast as she did. Through the ups and downs she experienced, she always returned to the connection she had with horses. Robin loved training, riding, and showing horses and believed that horses truly felt the emotions that humans experience. She was known for her witty sense of humor, kindness, sense of adventure, contagious smile, and she had a love for food, including her favorite- Limburger cheese.
Robin is survived by her three daughters and their spouses, Cathleen and Zephan Parker of Houston, Texas; Christian and Melissa Jimenez of Brownsville, Texas; Emma Maibach of Houston, Texas; Four Grandchildren Isaac, Natalie, Caroline, and Ezra Parker; Siblings Kathy and Bruce Henninger, Debbie and Jim Warwick, Larry Tester, Randy Tester, James and Melissa Maibach, Patti Leohr, Virginia “Ginny” Hahn, Sally and Tom Brokken, Sue and Barry Schaad, Connie Sims, Marilyn and Tracy Slater, and Janie and Steve Burgan.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to O.A.R.C., a recovery center in Ohio that utilizes equine therapy (hippotherapy) to aid in addiction healing. Horses used in hippotherapy represent metaphorical experiences that stimulate emotional growth, which is vital in recovery from addiction. Horses can open pathways for patients to increase trust, self esteem and heal trauma. Donations to O.A.R.C. would honor Robin’s memory and contribute to freedom from addiction for others.
