Anita Jean “Jeanie” Tobin, 61, passed away on July 18, 2020.
Jeanie was born on November 28, 1958, in Kansas City, MO, the daughter of Robert Lane and Carole (Worsham) Lane. She graduated from Truman High School in the class of 1977, and married Brent Keith Tobin on June 25 of that same year. To this union were born three children.
Jeanie spent a majority of her life being a full-time mom, between homeschooling her children and running them all over the city to taking care of her grandchildren she was always moving. She loved traveling and road trips especially if gemstones were involved. Her dream was to live in a tiny house of her own design and travel the country.
Jeanie truly thrived off of helping others. Her Christian faith was demonstrated when she opened her home to anyone in need of a place to sleep, her charity work and public outreach, and her selfless giving of her time and resources. She was drawn to colorful elements in her paint selections and gemstone choices, and she had a personality and zest for life that was equally as vibrant. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and those in the community affected by her care and compassion.
Jeanie is survived by her three children: Trista Roberts (husband Franklin), Taylor Beller (husband Mitch), and Trenton Tobin; grandchildren: Ariel Powers, Joel Roberts, Zipporah Roberts, Eliora Roberts, Emma Jean Beller, Sawyer Beller; parents: Robert and Carole Lane; siblings: Robert Lane, Jr., Khristy Baughman, and Melinda Gordon; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family.
She was preceded in death by her husband of nearly 35 years, Brent Tobin.
A visitation will be held on Friday, July 24, from 1-2pm, with livestreamed funeral service at 2pm, both at Speaks Suburban Chapel, 18020 E. 39th St in Independence, MO.
In Jeanie’s memory, the family encourages contributions to the Veterans Community Project, a local organization that provides tiny house living to servicemembers in need.
