Obituary for Sharon M. Robbins

December 21, 2019

Sharon Marie Horning Robbins was born in Syracuse, New York on October 27, 1938. She had one sister Patricia Lumley. She was an aunt to four nieces. She married Ray Robbins in 1959. They had 3 children; Mark Robbins, Lynn Robbins Boyd, and Nancy Robbins Fairchild. She had 7 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. After graduating from Parish High School she moved to Syracuse to attend Bryant and Stratton Business school. She met her husband while attending school. They moved to Parish in 1965 to the home they built and raised their children.

After her children were attending school, she went to work at Fay's Drug Store in Mattydale. She worked in the store office as an office clerk, put up stock, and also ran register. It was the perfect job for her. She loved to talk to the customers and there wasn't a baby or child she could resist. She retired after 30+ years of service. She was a member of the Parish Historical Society and was instrumental in appropriating funds to replace the roof on town gym. That was one of her proudest accomplishments. Sharon enjoyed the country life. She was an avid bird watcher; feeding them year round. She was also a crack shot with a shotgun. She always had various flower gardens. She made pickles and canned fruits and veggies in the fall. She and dad both loved to fish. They would go to the farmer's market in Oswego each year. After walking around the market and having a bite to eat, dad would fish off the wall and mom would net his catch. Every summer we would cram the 5 of us into a small truck camper and head to the North Country. It was one of my fondest memories. Lynn seemed to get a headache at the mere mention of camping. They both loved a good garage sale. Mom would have a garage sale just to socialize. Mom could crochet and knit. She used to sew some of our clothes for school. I never appreciated it at the time though.

She attended the Presbyterian Church in Parish since she was a child. The church had a station wagon that would pick up the local children and take them to the church to attend Sunday school. It was only fitting to have her final services there. If there was one word to describe Sharon, it would have been generous. She was always willing to help out in any way she could. She would have given you the shirt off her back. Toward the end of her journey all she wanted to do was to go home. You are home now and reunited with those who have passed before you. She was loved by so many and will be sorely missed by all she touched.
