Robin was blessed to have an extended family that included Tanya, Jeff, Payton and Paige Danner.

Robin was predeceased by her fur babies: King, Free Jack and Baron. Robin and Jimmy’s wedding announcement picture was taken on their Harleys. Robin believed that there was nothing more important than to make a difference in a child’s life. Robin and Jimmy became the surrogate parents to many over their life together.
Robin treasured friendship and connections. Through her life she made and maintain many friendships. She was always seamlessly there and knew what was happening in everyone’s lives. All who knew her, felt they were her priority. Robin and her best friend Jo-An Arnold have a special bond that has grown only stronger over the years.
Robin was always up for a road trip and took many vacations to see friends and family in Florida, Virginia, and Nova Scotia. She would be known to book a last-minute flight to surprise someone for their birthday or to be by their side in times of trouble. She was overjoyed to take a trip to Aruba with Brianna. Her greatest trip success was getting Jimmy to Florida. Robin was an avid shopper and loved Kohl’s, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls. She is one of the few people that could go to a consignment store, meet a stranger, and come home with a free dress.
Robin loved the sun and the beach. Many had their favorite beach spot with Robin or fond memories of their annual trip to Water Wizz. No matter the time of year, if the weather warranted it, Robin could be found at the beach. During her illness, one of her special moments was when they were able to take her outside to enjoy the sun.
Robin was currently employed with the Norfolk and Dedham Group and had worked there for 23 years. Robin loved working for the N&D and was always available to help out and go the extra mile. Robin would always say that she was so lucky to have the best boss. Many of her coworkers became treasured friends and Robin would partake in their family and life events. She was always excited about a new baby or pet.
In memory of Robin, take the time to enjoy the beach and think of your favorite Robin memory. We have all gained a special guardian angel.

When I die
Give what’s left of me away
And old men that wait to die.
And if you need to cry,
Cry for your brother
Walking the street beside you.
And when you need me,
Put your arms
And give them
What you need to give to me.
I want to leave you something,
Look for me
In the people I’ve known
And if you cannot give me away,
At least let me live on in your eyes
And not your mind.
You can love me most
Hands touch hands,
By letting bodies touch bodies,
And by letting go
That need to be free.
Love doesn’t die,
So, when all that’s left of me
Give me away.
