Robin was born on July 31, 1957, in Bridgeport, to Calvin and Virginia (Christensen) Coulter. She attended Bridgeport Public Schools, graduating with the class of 1975. Robin continued her undergraduate education as an animal science major at University of Nebraska Â–Lincoln (UNL), and earned her Master of Science degree of psychology at Chadron State College.
She was united in marriage to Peter C Lapaseotes of Bridgeport on June 24, 1984.
Her enthusiasm for life was evidenced by her numerous community involvement activities and eagerness for helping others. She was a member of the Executive Committee of the Morrill County Cattlemen, and served as Tax Chairperson for Nebraska Cattlemen. She was a past board member of Bridgeport Public School Board, Morrill County Weed District, and Engler Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Program at UNL. A fervent teacher, Robin established and directed her own young girl's camping group, and was an avid mentor for youths seeking opportunities in agriculture. She was an active member of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church and sang in the church choir.
Robin purchased and operated Coulter Ranch in Redington, where she later established Coulter Feedlot. Her passion for cattle and horses drove her lifestyle. She routinely traveled to show livestock, earning several accolades in her younger years. She was a staunch proponent of preserving the land and improving it for future generations. She frequently took advantage of using her chores on the ranch to host friends at her remote cabin in the Wildcat Hills. Her free-spirited personality was evident, as she welcomed and embraced anyone sharing and taking part in her activities and lifestyle. She will be deeply missed by her family and loving community.
