Robb, Heather Margaret

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Heather Margaret McGregor Robb (nee Snowdon) on Saturday April 4th, 2020. An amazing wife, mother, nanny and friend. Mom received the diagnosis of cancer on February 25th, her 81st birthday. As with everything in her life, mom faced the inevitable with grace, positivity, unbelievable courage and acceptance for what she could not change. She spent her last five weeks exactly as she wanted, at home, reminiscing with family, talking with friends and listening to music. She died, as she wanted, peacefully, at home with her kids by her side. Many Markham kids will remember "Mrs. Robb", the lunch room supervisor at Franklin Street Public School for over 20 years, but mom will also be remembered for the 30 years she spent volunteering at Markham Stouffville hospital. She started giving tours of the hospital before the doors even opened to the public in 1990 and continued on volunteering even after moving to Brooklin, only retiring in 2018 just before her 80th birthday. Mom is predeceased by her beloved husband of 52 years, Warren. She leaves behind her four children, Doug (Lori), Kathy (Keith), Diane (Paul), Sue (Mike), son-in-law, Doug Harrison, her 12 grandchildren, Ryan, Kyle, Sarah, Chloe, Chris, Mac, Lucy, Molly, Heidi, Jack, Abby, Danny and her great-granddaughter, Sutton Rose, all wondering, who is going to knit our slippers now?

Details of a fitting Memorial Service will be announced in the coming weeks, In memory of Heather memorial donations to St Thomas Anglican Church, Brooklin would be most appreciated.
Arrangements entrusted to Barnes Memorial Funeral Home, 5295 Thickson Rd. N. Whitby, messages of condolence can also be shared by visiting

Hello Doug, Kathy, Diane and Lisa.
My deepest sympathies on the loss of your mom. Heather was such a wonderful lady and I truly enjoyed our weekly chats at Markham Stouffville Hospital. She was such a dedicated volunteer and brought so much joy to those she worked with and supported in her role at the information desk.
May you take comfort in knowing that she will live on in our memories.
Kimberley Riley (former volunteer coordinator at MSH)

Hello Doug, Kathy, Diane, and Lisa, I am saddened to learn (today) of the passing of your mom. Heather was a weekly part of my life (25 years) and the life of Markham Stouffville Hospital (30 years). Her helpfulness, infectious laugh, and her love of people were a constant at MSH EVERY Thursday. The world has lost a bright light but Heaven has gained a brilliant STAR. May all your fond memories of your mom help you during this sad time. RIP my 'hospital friend.'

Our condolences to all of you on your loss. I have fond memories of your mother from the time our families were neighbours on Wooten Way in Markham. Very sad news, but we will plant a tree in her memory.
