Newport, OR - Our community sadly lost a valued and loved member on Wednesday February 10, 2021 when Robin Jacobson passed away from her long battle with ovarian cancer. She will be fondly remembered as someone who spent her time enriching the lives of the youth in Newport. For many years she was a part of the educational community as an employee of Newport Middle School where her big heart, loving manner and affectionate personality created lasting memories for all of the students who crossed paths with her. Robin is survived by her friend and companion Bob Jacobson, their three daughters Toby Turner, Cory Willson, and Kaety Jacobson,their spouses and 8 grandchildren, her older brother John, and younger sister Heather. Her legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone she has interacted with, but none so much as her beloved grandchildren. They affectionately called her Grammy, and adored being showered by her love and gifts. Robin loved being a grandmother and will forever be missed. Those wishing to honor her life can make a donation to: Lincoln County Foundation, P.O. Box 622, Newport, Oregon 97365 where a scholarship has been created in her honor. Please note that the donation is for Robin.
