Robin Leigh SULLIVAN

October 2, 1963November 26, 2019

Like a "Rolling Stone", Robin Leigh Sullivan passed away at home unexpectedly Tuesday, November 25th. She was 56 years old. Robin is the daughter of the late Robert Sullivan. And is survived by her Mother, Erline (Eenie) Sullivan and Brother, Bobby Sullivan, who are long time members of Balcones Country Club. Robin was a graduate of Westwood High School and attended Texas State University. Most of her friends remember her for her involvement with the beginning stages of South by Southwest as one of the first to be offered a paying position at the Event while organizing and corraling venue volunteers. She had a passion for music which led to the task of managing local bands for Austin area Entertainment Venues for many years. Friends describe her as always being the smartest person in the room with a twisted, sarcastic but appealing sense of humor. Although she battled with health issues for the past few years, she persevered and will be remembered for her intellect, laughter and generousity in helping friends in the midst of her own struggles. There will be no formal service but friends are invited to offer condolences and pay your respect to the family on Sunday, December 1 at Balcones Country Club between 2:30-5:30. 8600 Balcones Club Dr, Austin, Texas. 512-258-1621

Robin and I were fast friends in our youth. I cannot begin to count the many times I got on my bike and rode down the Clearock Dr. hill to make memories in her house at the bottom. I remember talking to her dad about Woodhue perfume by Faberge, and waking up to Eenies famous breakfast dish that would puff up in the oven like a Cowboy hat. The allnight slumber parties with teenage girls in a circle in the backyard sharing our crushes and ideas of independence. The MUSIC, oh how it spoke to her, and to us during the impressionable years. From Donny Osmond's Puppy Love to Lief Garret, Todd Rungren, Journey, Queen - Mama Mia those were great times. We lost touch as we all went off to College and so many times I said in my head that I was going to drop in and visit Robin as I'd see her birthday posts each year on Facebook. I never did and am so very sorry. God can take her earthly temple, but nothing can take the memories of warmth and sunshine she brought to our days. Robin was a dear friend, who grew into a brilliant young woman and will always hold a place in my heart.
