Robin A. Stair

Robin A. (Cooper) Stair, 62 of Charlotte passed away unexpectedly in her sleep on March 20, 2023. This beautiful, crazy Robin was born in Charlotte on October 6, 1960, to Robert and Beverly Cooper. She was an accomplished oboe player in the high school band and graduated from Charlotte High School with the class of 1978. On November 24, 1984, Robin married Scott Stair and together they raised five children. Robin would travel from her home in Williamsburg to Charlotte to plan and raise funds for her Relay For Life team. She was very organized and loved making cross stitched quilts for new babies. Employed in a diverse number of jobs over the years Robin currently worked in the Eaton County Civil Division. She held multiple jobs but none as special as mom. Having five children, there was always a houseful of so many of the Stair children’s friends who also called her Momma Robin. She endured a lot of loss and adversity throughout the years, but Robin championed life with a beautiful smile, fun, love and laughter.
She is leaving to grieve, daughter, Jacque (Ian) van der Linde of Hertford, England; sons, Jason, Jeremy, Justin (Jamie), and Jacob (Katie) Stair of Charlotte. This Gigi will be sorely missed by her grandchildren, Bram, Phin, Emma, Owen, Ryleigh and Gaige; her sister, Laura Cooper; in-laws, Clarence and Connie Battice; life-long friends, Liz Riebow (Mike Schaefer) of Traverse City and Iva (Mitch) Hopkins of Nashville; several nieces and nephews; and a host of special friends.
