Robin was true blue through and through. I worked with her at Daytons and met her when I was only 15, it’s hard to believe that that was 22 years ago. She was a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day and could make a killer zucchini muffin. We shared a mutual affinity for animals. I remember visiting her at her place in Maple Grove and she had purple everything. It was her favorite color. She was pure joy, always enthusiastic, always laughing, and always willing to lend a hand. I’m so sorry for her family and friends, it just sucks losing one of the good ones.

Robbin and I worked together at Dayton's. I have not come across another person who was as continually positive as Robbin, her smile and laugh were infectious. Robbin and I lost contact after we stopped working together but she never left my thoughts. I am saddened to hear that her life has ended so early. I pray she is at peace now and is reconnecting with her beloved pets again. Be free Robbie.

Robbin worked with me for many years at Daytons.
We could always count on her to make us laugh with her inquisitive questions and gentle soul.
Though we had not seen each other for a time, I feel such a loss and sorrow at her passing. She deserved much more than she received and I miss her.
God bless you Robbie. Be at peace.
