Agnes (Robbie) Martin, age 81 passed away on May 8, due to complications from dementia.
She was born May 18, 1938 in St. John’s, NL to Jack and Kay Robson. In 1960, she married her best friend and forever love James Joseph Martin.
Robbie loved people. She lived a wonderful and happy life finding the good in everyone she met. She adored her two girls and embraced every moment she had with them. She loved her role as Grandma and was never happier than having her two granddaughters close.
Her personality was such that she made friends everywhere she went. But Jim was her soul mate and together they shared 59 years of love and adventures.
Until 3 years ago, she was still spending her winters in Florida, golfing, swimming and spending good times with friends. She faced her illness with such grace and courage, we should all be so brave.
Robbie is survived by her adored husband Jim, daughters Karen (Dave) and Jody (Chris), two granddaughters Katie (Matthew) and Laura. She is also survived by her sister, Carmel.
A private celebration of life will be held for Robbie. Our family’ s heartfelt thanks to the 5th floor staff of the Forest Hills Nursing Home in Ottawa for their warmth and compassion.
“I’ll give you a daisy a day dear
I’ll give you a daisy a day
I’ll love you until the river runs still
And the four winds we know blow away.”
