July 7, 1966 ~ February 13, 2019 (age 52)
Robin was born at Memorial Baptist Southeast to Richard Arthur Griffiths and Bernadette Aileen Allen on July 7th, 1966 along with her twin sister Tammy Turner. From the beginning the bond between these two twins has been strong and it is with heavy heart that the cord that ties them has been severed.
Robin is survived by her wife Katrina Dawn Stewart and their two furry daughters, Ginger, a miniature Dachshund, and Onyx, a black lab. She is also survived by her twin sister Tammy Turner and husband Tom Turner; by nephew Charlie Turner, by niece Michelle Bell and husband Cecil Bell, III as well as their children Addie, Bridget and baby boy on the way due June 23rd. She further leaves her older brother Jim Griffiths, younger brother Paul Griffiths and older sister Linda Chapman with her sons Keith Coffey and Ken Coffey.
She is preceded by her father, mother, a stillborn brother and Great Aunt Mae Barnes as well as by her youngest furry daughter Cinnamon, a miniature Dachshund, whom we know she is cuddling and playing with wherever she has gone.
Robin was the kind of person that made friends easily and could strike up conversation with just about anyone. She was smart and funny. Her passion was always animals, specifically puppies. An avid watcher of puppy dog videos on YouTube, her dream job would have been to be chief petter at any animal shelter.
Robin’s go-to genre was horror in literature, film, and television. She most gravitated to stories that featured supernatural or scary monsters. In terms of horror authors she was most drawn to Stephen King. In film her favorites were Silver Bullet and Pet Cemetery. An intimate evening with her wife would often be watching supernatural, sci-fi, horror movies, or television shows.
Robin received some college education at the University of Houston and had she continued her studies, she would have liked to go into the forensic sciences as a medical examiner or other such position.
Her love for reading found Robin a job at Books a Million, which led to a job at Office Depot. She was then presented a customer service management position, she then got into tech sales in the same company. After losing her leg to diabetes in 2015 Robin turned to work as an interviewer for phone surveys at Customer Research International.
Robin experienced great joy in her family. From the time spent so closely with her niece Michelle Bell and nephew Charlie Turner growing up to moments she could steal away with her great niece Addie at the zoo, during holidays and family gatherings, or whenever she could. She often wished she could be with family outside of Texas more.
She was a loving wife, an amazing sister, a caring friend, and smart as heck. She brought light to so many in the Bryan/College Station community. We all know her, love her, and are lessened by the dimming of her light from this world.
Robin has a friend who set up a medical donation page through GoFundMe that the family is using if people want to give at this time. https://www.gofundme.com/help-robin-and-katy-with-medical-expenses
