January 15, 1978 - March 14, 2019
Robin always had a unique talent for bringing people together. She made and kept up with so many connections throughout her life. She always dreamed of living in a village so she could visit with as many friends as possible every day. She was finally able to make that happen when she moved to the Village of Skaneateles in 2017. Robin also loved to travel with her family and friends, especially to warmer climates during our winters. She loved her family, loved her friends, loved to laugh and loved to unite. She certainly made the most of her 41 years here on earth and she will always be remembered. Too bad for all of us that she had to leave so soon. Funny the way it is.
Robin passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family. She was an absolutely amazing mother of three boys, wife, daughter, sister and aunt. She attended Oxford Academy High School and then went on to Clemson University for two years before graduating summa cum laude from the University of Georgia with a degree in Real Estate Finance. After leaving her hometown of Oxford, NY, she lived in Clemson, Athens, Atlanta, Baltimore and Skaneateles, making many life-long friends along the way.
Robin is survived by her husband of 18 years, John, and their three boys, Cader (14), Graham (11), and Nolan (10); her first and only dog, Roo; her parents, Michael and Barbara Mayhood of Oxford, NY; sister Loralee and husband Matthew Bodo and their two children, Mason and Laina; sister Michelle and husband Derrick and their daughter Charlotte.
Calling hours will be Wednesday, March 20th from 4 to 8pm at Robert D. Gray Funeral Home, Skaneateles. A private burial service will be held at Lake View Cemetery. And a Celebration of Life party, as Robin wanted of course, will be held at the Welch Allyn Lodge Thursday night at 6 pm for all to attend. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Robin's name can be made to Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA.
