Israel RobynISRAEL, Robyn Eliza (Davis) - March 13, 1972 – October 20, 2021

Died peacefully at Bridgepoint Palliative Care surrounded by family and loved ones at the age of 49.

Beloved wife of Jeff, her husband of 16 years.

Daughter of Margaret (Richardson) and Gordon Davis.

Loving mother of the best kids in the world, Cassidy, and Connor.

Loving true sibling of Jill Wheeler (Helmkay), Susie Bartelt (Eady), Julie Rao (Eady), and Sean Helmkay. 

Robyn will be deeply missed by all. While her loss comes far too early, her profound impact will continue to carry us all forward.

Robyn was born at Grace Maternity Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia to Margaret and Gordon Davis.

Robyn was married to Jeff at Oceanstone Resort in Indian Harbour, Nova Scotia on July 23, 2005.

As she raised her two children, Robyn became increasingly involved in many local charities and organizations in Leaside. She particularly enjoyed roles with the Bessborough Home and School, Leaside Baseball Association, and Grit Athletics Toronto. And she would never forget her roots as a South Leaside Monday Group member.

In her final months Robyn did not complain, she remained focused on where she could still have a positive impact, and as expected, she continued to worry more about the wellbeing of others over herself.  She expressed gratitude for a life lived that was truly fulfilling, and happy.  

Robyn lived her life with grace, dignity, and determination. Her incredibly fierce love for Cassidy, Connor and Jeff will not be forgotten. She will be waiting for Jeff in Chester, as planned.

The family is grateful to the medical team at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, and to the palliative care team from the Temmy Latner Centre and Bridgepoint Health.

In lieu of flowers, if you are so inclined, please consider a donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities ( in Robyn’s honour.
