MARTIN, Agnes (Robbie)

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.”

    Dear Karen & Dave, I am very sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. She was everything the obituary said as finding the good in everyone was definitely her. She always made me feel good whenever I had the opportunity to meet her and even got to know her better the time they were here in Calgary for a few weeeks. Heaven has added an Angel; your Mom was such a kind person. God bless you and your family and watch over you during this most difficult time.
