Indeed, Robin was anything but average.Her zest for life was contagious and lives on through those who knew her, especially her amazing children, Makena and Quinn. Whether skiing down slopes together or planning their next trip, Robin instilled in them a love for exploration and together, they created memories that will endure forever.In addition to her children, Robin leaves behind an enormous network of loving family and friends. Survivors include her cherished wife and soulmate, Catherine Longo, with whom she shared countless adventures and boundless joy.
