I wanted to share a very old (well, at least old for me) memory of dear Auntie Olive. I have some amazing childhood memories but none are more special than the times spent in Collingwood with Uncle Bud and Auntie Olive. When Mom and Dad would get the car all packed up and ready for the long road trip from Montreal to Collingwood, there was this excitable anticipation from all four of us that we would be in Collingwood to visit family and of course, most notably, Auntie Olive. Once we arrived, her house was our house. The door was always open and the feeling of welcome was overwhelming.
Auntie Olive and uncle Buds house was always the hub of family activity. What a comforting feeling. She was an amazing women then and continued to shine for many many many years after.
Even from this distance, I feel the loss. The loss of someone very special not just to me but to all who knew her. She will forever be in my thoughts and I am certain all of her siblings who have been waiting very patiently for her, including my grandmother (Elsie), are having one heck of a reunion party! God bless her and you all. Scott Yates

I could not have asked for a better mom. She was a beloved mother and a friend to me and will always have a special place in my heart. I have a lifetime of happy memories from early childhood up to the giggly facetime we shared a few days before she died. I smile just thinking of her . Have a rye in her honour.

Our heartfelt condolences to Judy, Patricia, Beverley, Brian, Susan and Sandra and their families. We are unable to attend the Service as we are in PEI and handcuffed by COVID-19 restrictions. All of my life I have been embraced by the love of the Robinson family. Aunt Olive and my mother, Marjorie were very close. Every year our holidays centred on visits to or from Collingwood. We were treated to three family visits with Aunt Gladys and her family in Montreal. Camping trips to Sunset Point and frequent “get together” with Aunt Olive and her sisters were who we were as a family. I’ll forever treasure the lifetime of memories. See you on the other side Olive. Much love, William and Karen
