We had a wonderful mother she was one who never really grew old, her smile was made of sunshine and her heart was made of gold.  Her eyes were as bright as shining stars. She loved her children each one in a different way she cherished every moment with the man of her life nested close within her heart, though now she’s far away. Gone to a place where her pain will be no more though we will miss seeing her face when we walk through the door but she is here with us today, smiling down on everyone letting us know on this beautiful journey she must go but will always be watching us as we grow, for her love we will never let go.  

Survived by, Roy Defoe Jr.; children, Alex Lafave, Andrew Defoe (Crystal Johnson), Leah Defoe (Eric Murry), Alyssa Defoe (Dylan Magney); sisters and brother, Susan Lafave , Robert Lafave ( Michelle ), Liz Lafave, Teri Lee ( Butch), and Shai-anna Gallant (Chad).

Robin was preceded in death by mother Aritst Matheson, and father, Bob Lafave.
