Robin Alleen Haney Obituary

We are devastated to announce Robin’s death. Sister, wife, mother, teacher, gardener, friend, Robin lived her life nurturing, nourishing.

Robin leaves to mourn her husband of over 50 years Peter, sons Matthew and James (Karen); beloved grandchildren Ayden (Amy), Ben, Madeline, Emma and Wyatt; brother Roger (Bev) Reich; many, many close friends; as well as cat Freddie and dog Doug, whom she adored. 

Robin was born in Lethbridge to Alleen (Noble) and Walter Reich.  Graduating high school from LCI, she subsequently earned a BA (English) (UAlberta) and Teaching Certificate (UCalgary). After retiring from teaching in 2016 Robin continued her volunteer service for Habitat for Humanity (Lethbridge).

Robin had so many skills, many to do with her home and garden. She demanded not to be remembered as a good baker, but she cooked and baked for family and friends, to celebrate high holidays and every day, to sustain those in need, to welcome neighbors.

Mum was, of course, much more than a wonderful homemaker. A skilled educator, she taught for over 30 years in schools across Lethbridge, much of it at Gilbert Patterson Middle School. Robin will be remembered by her colleagues and countless students for her dedication to learning, caring attention to each student, the treats she always kept in her desk, and for her impressive "teacher voice" when needed. She loved teaching Grade 8; she loved her students and their energy.  She worked hard to provide them with a kind, calm and safe environment.

Above all, Mum, Robin, was a thoughtful, generous and caring wife, mother, daughter and friend. Robin was quietly devoted to her family, sacrificing much to be present and support her loved ones at every stage of their lives.

Robin’s days were marked by giving, humour, beauty and grace. We will miss her, every day.

A Celebration of Robin’s Life will be held from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm, on Saturday, February 17, 2024, at THE GALT MUSEUM & ARCHIVES VIEWING GALLERY, 502, 1st STREET SOUTH, Lethbridge, Alberta.
