Unalea Kolb Robb, 91, of Bremen, IN went to be with her Lord and Savior December 15, 2014 at Southfield Village, South Bend. Her family deeply appreciates the loving care she received there. She was born April 8, 1923 in Nebraska to Joseph Wilbur and Mary (Wolfe) Kolb. She attended Indiana University at Bloomington, IN where she met her future husband, Andrew Robb, Jr.

She retired from the dental profession after nearly fifty years of dedicated service. She was a long time member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Lakeville, IN. She loved and sacrificed for her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. During her retirement she enjoyed investing, gardening, embroidery, playing skip-lo and spending time with her Monday morning coffee group as well as her many friends, and family.

Unalea is survived by her children; Cindy (Phil) Eicher of Berne, IN, Andrew (Donna) Robb, III of Bremen, IN and Mary Beth (Alix) Bernard of Taylors, S.C.; grandchildren Dr. Heather (Kirk) Eicher- Miller, John (Julia) Eicher, Amy (Ted) Church and Adam Robb; and great grandchildren William, Anna and Leah Church, and Amelia and Stefan Eicher- Miller.

Unalea was preceded in death by parents, husband, and son Joseph Wilbur Robb.

Dear family of Unalea,
Your mother was such a gift to my father, Dr. Judson Lytle, when she worked in his dental office. For so many years, she did it all at the office...assistant at the chair, making appointments, calling for unpaid bills, etc. My parents so appreciated her hard work and her friendship throughout the years.
Please know that all of you are in our thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your wonderful mom. Both of my parents passed during the month of December, so I understand how hard this holiday season will be for your family.
Fondly, Deb Riggins
