Robin Leonard Dayton   December 17, 1945 to May 2, 2017



Robin Jill Dayton (Leonard) Of Gig Harbor, WA, lost her long and brave battle with cancer. She passed peacefully in her sleep at home. She was born December 17, 1945 to the late Donald and Bernadine Leonard. She is survived by her husband Herb, children Mike (Susan), Bruce, and Porshah, and grandchildren Evan, Nyah, Ian, and Xavi. She was sibling to Terry, Barry, and Renee. Robin's legacy is that of a truly remarkable woman, devoted mother and grandmother, and loving wife and partner. She treated everyone with respect no matter the situation. Her kindness and care for others was boundless. Her easy grace, ready smile, and generous spirit touched many hearts over her lifetime. Robin treated everyone like family, never missed an important date, and always put the needs of others above herself. She gave of her time, concern, and love without reserve, and her reach was far. Robin was indeed a woman of style, class, and infinite grace. She would light up a room with her presence and smile. Her light will burn brightly within all those privileged to have known her. She will be missed. There will be a celebration of her life May 7 from 3pm-6pm at the Canterwood Country Club. The family asks that all attendees who choose to do so please leave a short note or memory for the family. In lieu of flowers the family requests a donation to your favorite charity

I'm so sad to hear of Robin's passing. Condolences to her loved ones.

I always admired Robin for her calm, poised demeanor - even in grade school. And she was fun to be around.

Heartbreaking to hear about Robin passing.  We were classmates way back to Sunnydale Elementary.  She ALWAYS had a cheerful smile, was gracious to everyone and was a joy to be around. 

Sweet is the memory of distant friends!  Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart. - Washington Irving

I didn't really know Robin.  She sat two rows over from me in one of my classes but I never had the nerve or the confidence to approach her.  She was beauftful and I didn't think I could meet her level of class.  Her early passing is very sad and I send my deepest condolences to her family.

Robin and Herb looked me up while visiting Walla Walla a few years ago.  Robin seemed to be doing well following her treatment for cancer; she was the person I've always remembered; bright, funny and beautiful.  I feel very fortunate to have had a chance to visit with she and Herb. I have fond memories of time spent down at their family summer home on American Lk.  Robin will be missed by many.

I remember Robin, she was a very special friend to all of us...  God Bless you Robin.  And Bless your family during this difficult time... it's never easy to lose those we love.  I always think, one more person who will be waiting for me.  We will all be together again someday,  Dee Cappelletti

Robin was always upbeat, smiling, friendly to all, and someone to look up to.

My sincerest sympathy to those that she left behind.

RIP Robin.

I remember Robin from Sylvester : she and I were in a skit for the talent show choreographed by Mrs. McDade. We didn't win. I was just getting into ballet in a serious way then and was kind of scared of people at Sylvester, but Robin was reassuring to be around. The skit was a dance to Frankie and Johnny I believe. Someone else must have been in it, sorry don't remember who.  I lost touch with her in later years.
