Linda (Rose) Robbins

Worcester - Linda Sue (Rose) Robbins, 68, died unexpectedly in her sleep at her residence in Worcester on Wednesday, February 24th.

She leaves her husband of 46 years, Arthur K. Robbins; four daughters, Mindy Jill Robbins, Laurie Robbins, wife of Robert Martin, Michelle Robbins and Jamie Robbins and her fiancé, Joe MacCormack; two brothers, David Rose and his wife, Melody of Holden and Billy Rose and his wife, Kristen of Providence; two sisters, Dianne wife of Arturo Cartagenova of Bourne and Lisa Schrekinger of West Palm Beach, Florida; and four grandchildren, Marisa Tonelli, Tristan Coomey, Carter Foisy and Hunter Foisy.

She attended the University of Miami, where she met her husband.

She was born in Worcester and was a daughter of Ralph and Shirley (Aronson) Rose and was a lifelong resident.

Linda co-created the infamous "Robbins Nest" in 1969 with her loving husband Arthur. She without a doubt provided the most loving home for her four beautiful daughters, so much so, that everyone wanted to be a part of it. She was a second mother to her daughters' friends and was never without her own close friends and family, who meant the world to her. She will leave a giant hole in the hearts of all who knew her, with her contagious laugh, her kind hearted nature, and will be missed every single minute of every single hour of every single day.


Immediately following the interment service memorial observance will be held until 4:00pm at the Salisbury Green Clubhouse and will continue from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at her residence, 3501 Knightsbridge Close in Worcester.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Hourglass Foundation, c/o Tom DeFeudis, 15 Moreland Green Drive, Worcester, MA 01609.

Mommie, it's been one year and a half since you've been gone. I haven't even really taken in your beautiful stone Meesh and Emily created for you because I left the day of your service to go to the emergency room, of course. I just cannot go see you or the stone because now it is real. Before I felt when there was a sign with your name, etc; it was a just a paper sign meaning maybe you would come back, now it's a rock. A heavy rock meaning you are far gone and that rock has left a gaping whole further into my heart. I miss you more than words. You would be so proud of your family. Marisa and Tristan are heading to Highschool. Crazy beautiful
I love you

These past couple of days from the love I have witness, to the pain I have seen through the eyes of her family, friends, and her loving Husband. Especially, from one of my closest, and dearest friends (Michelle Robbins)?
