Robin Kay Barry, age 62, of Harriman, departed peacefully at home, after a long battle against breast cancer the morning of April 10, 2024. Robin lived a life of simple pleasures and greatly cherished moments with her loved ones. Robin loved people through food. Her children and grandchildren often surrounded her in the kitchen, while she served them a plate with a huge smile on her face; Robin’s fried chicken, being the favorite amongst her grandkids. From parks to beaches, Robin greatly enjoyed being out in nature. She loved outdoor activities like fishing or gardening with her husband. Robin embodied her maiden name, Byrd, often singing and dancing just like the first robin seen in spring, promising new beginnings. Renewal is her legacy to her loved ones. Seeing a robin will forever be a sign to her family and friends to make positive changes in their lives, let go of grudges, and follow their dreams. Robin was a devout Christian and a member of the Believer’s Voice of Deliverance Church.
