Robin Roberts Ryan
AGE: 59 • Wilmington
Robin Roberts Ryan, surrounded by her loving family, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, December 19, 2015.
After graduating from Mount Pleasant HS, Robin went to work at the duPont Corporation where she met her husband and love of her life, Neil Ryan. She left duPont after 15 years of service to raise her family. Robin was an avid volunteer and spent countless hours involved in the school system/ PTAs at school and state level, as a result of which she was appointed to the Foster Care Review Board of Delaware and served for over a decade. She returned to the work force after her children were grown and worked for Disney as well as various HVAC companies.
Robin loved all things Disney as well as Christmas. She will most especially be remembered for her dedication to children, family, and her adoration for her two grandchildren Zak and Mabel Kinsey. Those that knew Robin will remember how her personality and smile filled a room and how her heart touched all that she met.
She was predeceased by her husband Neil Ryan as well as her mother Janet Roberts. She is survived by her father Chester Roberts, Sr. and children Kellee Kinsey (Kevin), Jenna Ryan (Bob Leach) and Cory Ryan (Hayley Bernard). She is also survived by her brother Chester Roberts, Jr. (Ashley) and sisters Randee Roberts Tobin (Tom) and Debbie Fry and countless beloved nieces, nephews and family members.
