WARREN - Phyllis A. Robbins, 87, of Warren, passed away peacefully Friday, Oct. 11, 2013.
Born July 3, 1926, in Warren, Phyllis was the daughter of the late Howard G. and Dorothy Leech Dillon and was a graduate of LaBrae High School.
Phyllis married Robert M. "Bob" Robbins on Sept. 29, 1951, and was a wonderful homemaker who loved to cook and redecorate.
She was especially proud of the Century Home that Kinsman Bob and her restored, and the backyard garden at her home in Warren was where she could be found from spring until fall.
Golfing, swimming and reading were just some of Phyllis' many passions, and she was very active with the Trumbull Art Guild.
In later years, while watching her granddaughter, she was known to build a mini golf course in the yard so that Kelli and she could practice together.
Her trips to the beach and rousing conversations over coffee will be missed by family and friends alike.
Phyllis leaves behind her loving family, two sons, Pat D. (Joanne) Robbins of Warren and Michael C. Robbins of Alvarado, Texas; a daughter, Susan J. (Kevin) Burkey of Cortland; five grandchildren, Kelli A. (Kevin) Denman, Carl Ray (Danielle) Robbins, Lori Racy, Jennifer Henry and Chelsea Robbins; nine great-grandchildren; and her dear friends, Jo Pardee, Al Battista and Phyllis Hammond.
In addition to her parents, Phyllis was preceded in death by her husband, Robert M. "Bob" Robbins, on June 9, 2012; a son, Robert "Jeff" Robbins; and her brother, Jerry Dillon.
Family will receive friends from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Sinchak and Sons Funeral Home.
