Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Family,I just wanted to leave a note to let you know of my warm thoughts and deepest condolences for each of you. Robbie will be missed and will always have a place in so many hearts of the people who have been blessed to have known her. She was part of our original design team for our new Church that is currently under construction. When we walk in that new Church, I'm sure we will have many Robbie-isms all around us as her memory and her design eye continues to live on for generations. So sorry I missed visiting with many of you this morning at the funeral home, but know of my prayers and my offer to visit with you anytime you need. God Bless and be renewed in the promise of Resurrection as a gift from God. Love, Fr. Keith Pellerin

  2. Dear Taylor and family, My heartfelt sympathy and prayers go out to you as you grieve the loss of your mom. May you find some peace in Jesus. I know there are no words that I can say to make you feel better so I won't even try. Please just know there are lots of people who loved you and lots of people will be praying for your mom and all of you!

  3. Dearest family of Robbie…So many memories of a wonderfully sweet girl and lady. I think back on days when we were all in school…Dolby and onto Barbe (in my case, it was LaGrange). Robbie hosted one of my wedding showers in 1982 (to Bob), and I still look at those photos today. She was also such a loving help to me after I had Sean, and she would visit me to ease my 'anxieties' with having a new infant and toddler running around the house. My heart truly goes out to the entire family. I especially have my heart and thoughts with you, Donna. I know how close you and Robbie have always been. My prayers are with you now and for time to come. Love, Melanie Scott

May her family be comforted knowing she has never left them; a part of her still lives on in each of them. Bless you all.

  9. I offer my prayers for Robbie and her family. I have known Robbie since elementary school at Dolby and always when I thought of her, she made me say what a sweet girl even as she grew into an adult. Her death is such a surprise to me but I know that her faith and the faith of her friends and family in Christ has helped her realize an eternity in God's home. May she find eternal peace now and one day I hope we can see her in the Kingdom. Let us rejoice in the Lord and lift up prayers and songs for Robbie and her family.

  16. Robbie and I were so close when we were young. We spent a lot of time at 2nd avenue pool and then University pool. We loved Zero candy bars. I now wish we'd kept in touch. I miss her horribly!!! I pray strength for family and friends. Her beautiful smile will forever be my favorite memory because we had lots of laughs together.

  17. Robbie has gone to meet her maker and a real angel she was.I first met Robbie at a slumber party in jr. high and thought she was a real sweetheart. I also had the pleasure of having Robbie as a high school classmate. I remember helping her pick out a gown after she had her first child. I last chatted with her months ago on facebook, but had no idea she had been sick. She was always cheerful and kind and in her own special way made everyone around her feel comfortable. God Bless the Family and thank you for sharing such a lovely person with us in previous years. Peggy Godeau

  22. Until we meet again at our Lord's feet, we will miss her dearly, her exuberance, her adventurous spirit, her creativeness, her beautiful smile, her kind and generous heart, her courage, her gentle sweet voice and her place at the pokeno table. She gave so much to those in desperate need. She leaves a great legacy and example for those left behind. As much as we will miss her, I know the loss must be great for her family. I pray these words from scripture for you all, that the peace that surpasses all understanding will guard you hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
