Lynn Darlene Robinson


Lynn Darlene Robinson

Lynn Darlene Robinson (nee Amon), life-long resident of Springhill, passed away peacefully on February 4th 2020 at the George Dumont Hospital in Moncton.

Born in December 1942 in Springhill, Lynn received a Bachelor of Education from Dalhousie University in 1964 and went on to enjoy a career of teaching, first in Ingonish, NS and then in Springhill until her retirement. She was well-known for her many years of teaching high school English Literature in Springhill.

Lynn enjoyed spending summers in the family summer residence in Cape Breton, as well as cooking and baking. She was continually reading and adding to her extensive library of books collected over decades, and had a wonderful smile that could light up a room. More than anything, however, she loved her family and dogs Dilly and Olive.

Lynn is survived by her loving husband Francis, daughter Holly (Robert), son Drew (Terissa), grandchildren Rayne, Chapin, and Declan, and brother Del (Barb).

She was predeceased by her parents Layton "Pete" and Florence (Rushton) Amon.

Lynn was well-known for her intelligence, her wit and, most recently, for her relentless bravery and strength. She will be dearly missed by family, friends, and former students.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of the A H Brown Funeral Home, 5 McFarlane Street, Springhill, (902 597 2361). A family gathering will be held in lieu of a funeral service at her request.
