  1. Mrs. Robins!!! Yes, I could never in our 50+ year relationship, call you anything else. That was my term of endearment. You will forever be in my heart ❤️. Being referred to as your fifth daughter was both an honor and a blessing. You welcomed me into your home and your heart and for that I will be forever grateful. I happily and lovingly referred to you as a second Mom. I will cherish you always. Rest In Peace.

  2. Heaven gained a very special angel! Rest in peace Aunt Terry. You were such an incredible aunt with a beautiful heart. We love you and will cherish all of our special memories with you. We can only imagine how many family picnics you and Aunt Rose will be organizing in heaven and the dessert table got much sweeter.

    “We had a wonderful aunt, one who never really grew old; her smile was made of sunshine, and her heart was solid gold.”
    We will miss you!
    Love Always,
    Donna, Debra and families

  12. You were such an important part of my growing up. You and Mr. Robins were always so kind, supportive, and loving to me. I can’t remember I time when I didn’t call you Mom. I remember countless times having tea and a piece of cake at the kitchen table. You were always there for me. You will forever be in my heart ❤️. Being referred to as your fifth daughter (something Joanne and I always joked about, who was the fifth daughter, is a true testament to you.) Missing you. Love Karen

  13. candleDear Christine, Diane, Janice & Joyce – my deepest sympathy & prayers go out to you all. My most cherished memories date back to those days at the yard, the focal point of our family. Christine & Diane will remember those wonderful days. It all started there for all of us. And Teresa was a vital part of it all. I will deeply miss her.

  14. Teresa goes back to my earliest memories. She always had such a pretty smile when I encountered her, and her soft voice was unlike anyone else’s, it made me feel good to hear it. And it didn’t change for as long as I knew her. She always looked and sounded like a young girl for her whole life. Whenever Teresa was nearby, I always felt like I was in the presence of an angel. I will miss her, and never forget her.

  15. Our prayers and heartfelt condolences to the family on your loss. May God give you comfort and strength during this most difficult time, and may you find peace knowing she is resting in the arms of the beautiful angels.
