Robin was a knowledgeable, determined and loving nurse to many patients and families in both the Effingham Health System and as a nurse and administrator to several Hospice Organizations. Robin was a proud member of the Effingham Health System Authority Board for many years.
The true joy of her life was her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as well as her family and friends. You could not go anywhere with Robin that you didn't get stopped several times to visit with people she knew. She was relentless as a doting aunt to her babies, Ariana Jalynn Hope Massey, Danny James Massey (hands down her favorite), Jesse Stewart Massey and Elijah Edward Massey.
Robin was recently approved as a candidate for a kidney transplant at Piedmont Transplant Center in Atlanta. She was a fierce advocate for organ donations. (www.organdonor.gov)
