Robin Ellison Feiler died May 24 at her home after a courageous battle with cancer. She was 55.

Friends and family are invited to a memorial service in celebration of her life at 3 p.m., Saturday, June 14, at 12971 Squirrel Creek Road (Squirrel Creek Ranch).

Mrs. Feiler was born Nov. 11, 1952, in South Milwaukee, Wis., to Wallace and Mary Ellen Bloom. She was the third of four children. She married Yan Feiler of Chicago and together they headed west to California, where they raised their children.

Mrs. Feiler enjoyed reading, traveling by train, and spending time with family, friends and her pets. She was a classically trained pianist and played for the Bear River High School choir for seven years. She also played music at Sierra Vista Covenant Church and the Nevada County Healing Rooms for many years, and was part of the American Harp Society. She inspired us all with her kind spirit, sweet voice, and her enduring faith. She will be deeply missed.

A special thank you to everyone who reached out to our family during a very difficult time through cards, phone calls, visits, meals, donations, and most of all your prayers.

Mrs. Feiler is survived by her husband, Yan; children Cody, Larkyn, and Heidi; mother, Mary Ellen; and siblings Jan, Pedar, and Patti.

Arrangements are under the direction of Chapel of the Angels Mortuary in Grass Valley.
