Robin Ashley Alves
July 1988 January 2011
Robin lived her life as if there was no tomorrow. She was versatile in her friends and relationships and moved easily between lifestyles – whether it was a cowgirl riding horses to a biker on the back of a motorcycle. Robin had a tight circle of friends that she loved to go out and spend time with.
Outside of her circle of friends, Robin touched the lives of many others.  Family was a key aspect of her life and she always made an effort to stay close to those who mattered. After her father passed away, she rejuvenated her focus on family – spending time with her brother and sister, grandparents, aunts and uncles, as well as her mom and loved ones. 
She attended Adrian’s Beauty College and was looking forward to graduation when she could be out on her own. Cosmetology was a perfect fit for her as she could channel her inner beauty to assist others to achieve the same on the outside. 
She is survived by her mother, Sunny Peterson of Stevinson; grandparents, Steve and Zeldina Alves of Delhi; grandmother, Nova Silveria of Empire; brother, Donny Ray Peterson of Stevinson; Carly Madison of Warrenton, Ore.; her companion, Chris Thissen; and two loving stepchildren, CJ and Dillon Thissen. She was preceded in death by her father, Scott Alves.
Funeral services for Robin will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 30 at Allen Mortuary.
