It is with great sorrow, pain and grief that we are left to announce the long feared passing of our daughter, Robyn Shumsky. The worry and struggles we witnessed throughout her years of addiction have been replaced by profound loss. We are able to smile knowing that our final communication was gentle and loving as we witnessed her journey come to an end.

Her empathetic heart and forgiving nature had her bringing home people vs. puppies. She understood the needs of the broken souls which left her completely without judgment. She willingly shared all that she possessed.

Robyn was most in her element where children and animals were concerned... Chasing after a runny nose or caring for her sister's dog and Charley.

We will miss her fearlessness, her endless cooking and paranormal shows, our (captive) car chats and seeing her swinging in the back yard. The family gatherings, where she was adored by all, will become cherished memories with countless tales

Besides her parents Robert and Sandra (Downs), Robyn leaves her sisters Lacey and Jodie, her maternal Grandmother Doris Downs, her Aunts Debbie Downs, Lori Walker (Tom) and Uncles Gary, Billy (Laura), Tim (Alexandria) and many cousins. She was predeceased by her grandfather, Granville Downs and her cousin Billy Downs. In addition to her family, she leaves her cherished friend, Chris McGuane and her life long friend (and 3rd "sister") Katey Trotta.

Her family will receive relatives and friends on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 from 5 to 7 pm at Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Rd, Enfield. For public safety, attendees are required to wear face masks and attendance will be restricted to an occupancy of 50 persons at a time. Services and burial will be private.

Robyn, it's so sad creating memories without you. Our new 'normal' has begun. Today is Father's Day - you're missing it. Yesterday we celebrated Jodie's Birthday, you missed that too. Mine is in a few days and you won't be by my side. Memere will be home from Florida tomorrow, unfortunately to bury another grandchild. I have to remind Dad daily of your absence. I'm afraid your memory will eventually fade from his view. I promise to keep the conversation going, fill in the gaps for him. You were such a huge help to me caring for him. I was always confident it would be ok for me to leave for a bit.

I wish your genetics didn't play a role in your destiny. I wish we found the right combination of meds to ease your sadness and anxiety. I wish COVID didn't happen. You needed to SEE your Doctors. Three months is a long time to avoid the physical visits and be accountable. I wish you had better coping skills and impulse control. I wish I had a crystal ball, a magic wand, a time machine...

I wish you renewed health and happiness on this next journey.

We will love you to the Heaven's and back.
