Robin M. Smith of Dayville, CT passed away on April 1, 2021. Robin was born in Chicago, IL on November 19, 1960 to Kenneth M. Reynolds and the late Maureen (McFarland) Reynolds and later moved to North Kingstown, RI. She graduated from North Kingstown High School in 1978 and attended the University of Rhode Island.
Robin is survived by her father and step-mother, Kenneth M. and Anne M. Reynolds, of North Providence, RI and her devoted partner, Davey Berube of Dayville, CT. She also leaves her daughter and son-in-law, Jessica and Daniel Corning, of Beverly, MA and her son and daughter-in-law, Bryan and Madilyn Smith, of Dayville, CT. She is also survived by her brother, Gary Reynolds, and his wife Debra, of San Jose, CA; her sister, Kristen Whittier and two nieces Lauren and Jordan Whittier of Tallahassee, FL; her aunt, Denise Osowick, of Nevada City, CA; and her granddaughters, Emily Lynn Corning and Eleanor Rose Smith, who were the love of her life.
Robin’s life was devoted to caring for others, starting with caring for children through her daycare business known as Robin’s Nest and later becoming a licensed CNA and transitioning to eldercare through her business known as A Helping Hand. She had a flair for decorating and loved flowers, which meant her yard was always filled with beautiful flower gardens. Robin would often say her proudest accomplishment was raising her two children, Jessica and Bryan, and the joy that filled the end of her life was spending time with her granddaughters, Emily and Eleanor.
Relatives and friends are invited to celebrate Robin’s life and visit with her family at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, April 9, 2021 in St. Mary Church of the Visitation, 218 Providence St., Putnam, CT followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 a.m. Burial will follow in St. Mary Cemetery, Providence St. in Putnam, CT.
