Not a dry eye in the house Thursday - what an extraordinary show of courage, humour, strength and support by the entire family. A wonderful tribute to you Robyn, your spirit lives on in those you have left behind - they are a credit to you and Mal. Deepest condolences to all, from the Dutton girls - Sue, Barb, Kay & Shelly

My beautiful P.L and second Mum <3

My heart breaks knowing I will never see you again and it’s so hard to write how special you were and what you meant to me. Thank you for all your love, memories, laughs and care. You were one in a million and the world is not the same without you. Thank you for being my PL and second Mum. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. I hope I can continue to make you proud.

Thank you for allowing my family to be apart of yours. We are truly blessed to have you all in our lives. I feel so honoured and you will always be family to us. You will always hold a special place in my heart my PL Mum. Rest easy beautiful. Until we meet again, I will never forget you and I love you forever PL Mum <3? xxx

For more than 50 years our families Smiths, Davidsons & Terkuiles grew up together enjoying the Christmas holidays spent at Pt Leo, with so many wonderful memories shared together over this time. Robyn you were a fun loving person, who always had time for a laugh and chat and a kiss and hug on New Year’s. We will miss you at Pt Leo but we know you are now pain free. You were taken way too soon and our sincerest condolences to Malcolm and the kids, to Steve, Gay and their families & especially to Mary. Unfortunately we are overseas, so we’re unable to make it but we will wear some colour and have a drink in your honour. <3?

Cinque Terre.
We want to give a voice to this land.

For 4 weeks every year, for 31 years, we have shared our summer holidays together.
We will miss the sound of Robyn’s infectious laughter across the Common & her competitive spirit at the trivia nights, but we will never forget her.
Our sincere condolences to Mal, Kirra, Blake, Casey, Bailey & Mary and the whole Wilson & Smith clan.

Dear Mal, Kids, Grandkids and the Smith Family,
Robyn was a special, one of a kind human being. I don’t remember the exact day in early 1978 but I remember from that first conversation sitting our 20 and 21 year old bums on the hard wooden bleachers of Coburg basketball stadium, I think we both knew we had found a friend for life. We discovered that our birthdays were a day apart, that our middle names were the same and we shared the same sense of humour.
Robyn’s confidence, smile, and ability to listen, guide without judgement, drew people to her. She was like the house mother to all the basketball wives and girlfriends. She was the planner, organiser and the chief hair holder backer when the partying got too much ( I did reciprocate a few times for her). Cornwall Rd was the meeting place - before a night out/ after a night out/ during a night in. Those nights we went to the North Melbourne Football Social club dancing and having a blast. What went on there- stayed there. Blimey those were fun years, being young, happy and care free.
Our friendship was uncomplicated and always easy. No keeping count , no matter how long in between phone calls or visits. Just listening and love.
When Robyn loved you, you were considered family. I’ve been privileged to be part of your amazing family and to seeing how you all looked after her during her illness was truly inspiring. The care, consideration, tenderness with humour was beautiful. Love you all and rest peacefully Darling Girl. Unbelievably blessed to have shared every memory . Xx

So much I want to say but I struggle to find the right words. 16 years of laughs, tears, words of wisdom and talking shit. Missing that mischevious twinkle in your eye, the endless chats about life and loved ones, the comforting squeeze of my arm and those big bear hugs when we had no words. I will remember you for your cheekiness, your loyalty, your genuine care, compassion and love, and that big beautiful grin. Your absence at work this year has been felt deeply and I'm so thankful to Mal and the family for making me welcome on my visits. I have been so blessed with our friendship and will continue to miss everything about it and you. Every glass of bubbles will bring a 'cheers' for Rob. Looking forward to your visits in my dreams xxx

Dear Mal and family,
My deepest sympathies for loss of such a beautiful women. It was an absolute pleasure and privilege to have known her. I often looked at her as a second mum at work. She always gave the best advice. I unfortunately will not be able to attend tomorrow but you will all be in my thoughts. Hope your sipping on some good bubbles Robyn! Love you xo Lisa xo

Dear Mal & family
Our hearts are saddened by your loss, someone as wonderful as Robyn will never be forgotten. We enjoyed catching up with you both at the Clancy gatherings, there was always laughter and some bubbles shared.
Sending lots of love, you'll be missed dear Robyn xx

My deepest condolences to the Wilson Family. I had the privilege of knowing Robyn for 10 years through Bailey. She was the most loving, caring and funniest mother I knew, it got the point of always referring to Robyn as Mumma Wilson, because that is who she was. You may not have been blood family but she treated you like one of her own and for that Mumma Wilson, I will never forget you. Until we meet again, I hope god blesses you and your family as he has done me. R.I.P Robyn, gone but never forgotten. Johnny xx

To Mal and family, Robyn was a very special person whom we had the priveledge of knowing for a very long time. She will always hold a special place in our hearts. Our love to you all always

Sharon Davey on 9 October, 2019 at 3:00pm

Robby it is so hard to know what to say but I do know that I am going to miss you terribly. I will miss your cackle, that look with the hmm and those piercing blue eyes. You always saw the bright side of life and your family was your everything. Over the many years we have shared belly laughs, tears and treasured memories. About 40 years ago you talked me into buying some raffle tickets for some ceramic white doves which I won. To this day I still have them; they will forever hold a very special place in my heart.
I am sure you are with your dad and please give my dad a cuddle from me.
All my love always Rob you were a treasure.

To my beautiful friend Cookie.
My world changed again when I got the news last week.
You were my confidante, my fellow breakfast club bitch, my shoulder to lean on and at times cry, mostly the one I shared so many laughs with. Oh what I'd give to see your smile and those beautiful blue eyes light up and hear your raucous laugh and cackle again.
It was a beautiful priveledge to sit by your side on my visits, to hold your hand to still see the twinkle in your eyes over the past 10 months.
To witness the tender loving care given by Bailey and her Mally, even when she was grumpy. To see Rob surrounded by her adored and adoring family showering her with love and devotion was beautiful. Bless you all in this difficult time.
Cookie, your memory will live on whenever the Westbreen team (witches/wenches) get together, memories that have been created over the years when sharing much fun and laughter over a glass of bubbles or 27!
Love ya guts old girl!
PS I promise I will keep up my end of the bargain as I'm sure you will yours.

Casey on 9 October, 2019 at 12:04pm

Forever loving you mama! <3?
