Dolores (Lola) Teresa Robison passed from this world on Dec. 26, 2017 surrounded by family. A Rosary will be held at 6 p.m., on Thursday, Jan. 4, 2018, at Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel. A memorial Mass will be held at 10 a.m., on Friday, Jan. 5, 2018, at Our Lady of Good Counsel, follow by an inurnment at Mountain View Cemetery. Cremation was under the care of Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel.

She was born in Mountain Home, on Aug. 17, 1931 and lived her entire life in Mountain Home before moving to Boise in her later years.

Growing up, Dolores participated in athletics in high school and played as many sports as she could. Basketball was the sport she excelled at and remained her favorite.

Hurley (Bud) Robison and Dolores married on May 9, 1954 and wasted no time starting a family having three children in three consecutive years following their wedding. Dolores and Bud enjoyed bowling together at Strato Lanes winning many leagues and tournaments over the years.

Dolores’ main career throughout her life was that of a top-notch bookkeeper. She was most proud of her election as the Elmore County Clerk, a position she held for seven years until she retired.

A dedicated mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Dolores spoke often of her legacy as she looked around the room at family gatherings admiring all of her “kids”.

Along with her daughter Karen, she fulfilled a lifelong dream of traveling to the Basque Country and visiting Lekeitio where her parents and oldest brother were born.

She always cherished the memories of that trip and she dreamed of going back again someday.

Dolores’ grandchildren describe her as “sassy”. We believe that is a tribute to her strong Basque roots and fiery temperament. She remained sassy until the day she died by kicking everyone out of her room and making snide remarks to all of us.

Dolores is survived by her daughter Karen, son Tom (Wendy), grandchildren Heather, Tracy, Shawn (Mike), Jason (Leslie), Cortnie (Josh), and Rachel (Matt). She is also survived by eight great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband Bud, her daughter Sis, her parents, a sister, and four brothers.

Donations in her memory may be made to Euskal Lagunak, PO Box 88, Mountain Home, ID 83647.
