Robyn Louise Schara, 64, of La Crosse, passed away peacefully at Riverside Transitional Care on June 19, 2021, after a long struggle with alcoholism.  She was born on April 17, 1957 to Charles and Donna Schara.

Mom loved the water. especially up north at Happiness Resort.  She loved crafting and making jewelry.  She jokingly called herself the “crazy cat lady”, because she was crazy in love with her cats.  Kindness is the best word to describe mom.  She had a heart of gold.

Robyn is survived by Christopher B Solberg, 37, Nicole O. Solberg, 31, and Gayle O. Jurkovich.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Donna Schara.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am on Thursday, July 8, 2021 at The Gathering Place, 133 Mason St. Onalaska, with visitation from 10:00 am until the time of the service.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the La Crosse Humane Society.

    Chris, Nicole and Gayle, I am so sorry about Robyn. I use to see her at Gundersen when we both were coming into work some days. My prayers are with you all and hope good memories will some how give you peace. She was indeed a very kind soul.

    Dear Chris, Nicole and Gayle.

    So sorry to hear of Robyn’s passing and I have been reliving wonderful memories of growing up in Austin with the Schara’s as our neighbors. We spent many great days as kids in the neighborhood playing together. May your memories of Robyn help you through your grieving.

    My sincerest condolences for the loss of a very special soul. I met Robyn on 4C and I had the pleasure of getting to know her. We spent time playing board games, puzzles, dining out, and traveling with friends. During a Christmas gift exchange 12 years ago, I had the pleasure of receiving a blanket from her that is still my favorite today. She was such a beautiful woman inside and out. I will always cherish her kindness and spirit.
