Jonna Robinson

Jonna Robinson '09, 28, died suddenly on June 23, 2015. Jonna was working on her doctorate in psychology at Azusa-Pacific University in California where she previously received her master’s degree. Jonna received her undergrad degree from Santa Clara University. She is survived by her parents, John and Jo Nelle nee Nelson; her snoods, Megan and Kaleigh; her grandmother, Marion Robinson; her godparents KT Nelson and Jeff Robinson; many aunts and uncles, and 28 first cousins all of whom she knew and loved. She is also survived by her love, Bobby Joyce, and his family, who showed her much kindness.

Jonna was so happy to recently be able to be in the wedding of her best friend, Natalie Perkal, and to celebrate with her DG sisters and Santa Clara University friends. She loved to play volleyball (Go Viator Lions!) and dance (a special shout out to Lisa and Tianna Hagens!) She had too many friends to name here but you know who you are as she often told you she loved you all. She loved her little dog Ninja and he was her faithful companion and was with her to the end.
Jonna was preceded in death by her infant sister, Theresa; her grandparents – Nana (and fellow Tiger) Margaret Nelson, Grandpa Bob Nelson, and Jack (Cookie-Pa) Robinson.
For many years, Jonna bravely struggled with a chronic disease and it finally overwhelmed her. In lieu of memorials, please tell someone close to you how much you love them because we “know not the day nor the hour….”  We love you, Jonna!
A dance scholarship has been established in Jonna’s name.  If you wish to donate, checks can be made payable to Lisa Hagens and mailed to: Flair Dance Studio, 101 E. Rand Rd., Mount Prospect, IL 60056.  Dance on, Jonna!
