Memories Timeline


  1. She was my dearest friend. My confidant, my port in any storm. Always there with good advise and a laugh. So many happy memories. So many 2+ hour phone conversations. So much I will miss.

  2. I worked closely with Robyn at Key Elementary School. We had a classroom of students with severe learning and behavioral disorders. Robyn loved those unruly kids and had amazing patience with children who behaved in unbecoming ways. She was a gift to the children and a huge help to myself and our staff. As an educator, Robyn used her God-given talents in service to others. I am grateful for her kind heart and skill as a teacher, and I will miss her.

  3. Gene, we are so sorry to see this!! I know she was having health issues, but was doing better!! Love from Olean NY Bonnie Gardiner Buchanan

  4. CandleImageI will miss her so much, as will many others. Robyn was my best friend since high school, we had many adventures and she helped me make sense of the world so many times. Such a terrible loss to her family and everybody who knew her, but I am very grateful that she was in my life, and I was in hers.

  5. Gene & Family,
    Please accept my deepest sympathy on Robyn’s passing. I always enjoyed seeing the two of you when you came for the ACS Reunions. May Robyn RIP.
