Robin Tynes

A Celebration of Life


Robin Patricia Tynes was born March 5, 1955, in Columbus, Ohio to the late Samuel Keys and Altamease (Moore) Keys. Robin had an unwavering faith in God as she truly loved and honored the Lord. This love for the Lord was cultivated at an early age and continued into her adult life. As a young adult, Robin had a boldness for witnessing for Christ. She would make hand-written note cards with scriptures, then pass them out to people on the street. The Word of God illuminated her path, and during dark and tumultuous times, brought her a great sense of peace. She knew that life in fellowship with God did not come naturally; therefore, she made it her mission to share with all the extravagant gift of freedom, grace and eternal life that only a relationship with Christ can provide.


Robin’s life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeded the quantity of time in which one lived. Robin faced many challenges in this life that tested her faith, but she never questioned God. She always maintained a positive outlook and her beautiful smile brightened every room. She gave us all such courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life.


Robin was a loving and exemplary mother and friend with a bright and amazing soul. She possessed a wonderful sense of humor and was loyal to a fault. She enjoyed shopping and lived at Macys. She had a keen sense of fashion and made sure what she purchased was of high quality, but also on sale. She did not complain and was self-driven. Her daughters were her most prized possession. There was no greater joy than being a mother. She loved her girls from the depths of her soul and inspired them to pursue excellence in every area of their lives. She loved ministering to others about the goodness of our Lord and blessed people’s lives with so much abundance.


Robin loved to listen to music and she loved to dance. Music and dancing filled her heart with such joy. Robin also had a competitive side. She was fearless and flawless. She would challenge any opponent to a game of pool and had the skills to execute her plan and victory with precision.


On November 18, 2018 at 11:18 p.m. Robin transitioned from labor and pain to total healing and reward! She was preceded in death by her parents, Samuel and Altamese Keys; husband, Marvin Tynes; brother, Wayne Clifford Moore; sister, June Denise (Moore) Wade and a host of other family members.


She leaves to cherish many fond memories, her loving daughters: Erica N. Tynes of Columbus, Ohio; Tiffany D. (Anthony) Tynes Curry of Columbus, Ohio; Seven Grandchildren, Kai’Azha O’Daniel, Kimani Kendrick, King Kendrick, Anthony Curry, Jr., James Curry, Shaughnessy Curry and Khyan Curry; sister, Teresa “Rene” (Glen) Caldwell; niece Dermetriea Moore and nephew Rick (Tenisha) Wade; son-in-Christ, Leroy Kendrick; the Moore family, the Miller family, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

    Robin Moore Tynes was my best friend and Babysitter when I was a girl. She was loving, sweet, kind, supportive and understanding of me. She had a beautiful smile and a contagious laugh that would light up the room! She was amazing to me. She gave me hope as a young girl. We were able to connect for a brief time when I became an adult and she was still the same beautiful spirited and spiritual woman. I do know that she adored her daughters and was so very proud of you. I’m so very thankful that God brought Robin into my life when He did, to show me true kindness and unconditional love and support. The world was a better place because of Robin. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    The picture and words are a beautiful tribute that truly allow us to remember your mother. Ms. Robin was a woman on fire for the Lord, she had a big heart, was classy, confident, strong and christ-center. I will be forever grateful for her many talks encouraging me and very boldly telling me to keep moving forward – she was a blessing and I join you in celebrating her life and legacy. Praying for you my friends ❤

  • RP says:

    To Robin’s family and friends, please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. It’s so hard to lose someone we love, but the seeming finality of death is what makes it especially difficult. Job 14:14,15 gives us confidence that Jehovah God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. The Bible gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29″ May this bring you some comfort and strength, remembering that soon God will wipe away our tears and swallow up death forever. (Isaiah 25:8)

  • Brenda Miller Stewart says:

    Cousins Tiffany, Erica and Family,
    Robin will always reside with us forever. I can’t stop thinking about the things we did together,the places we went as children, teens and as young adults. Robin was a joy to be around and she brought so much laughter! I wish you two could have known your Great-Great Aunt, Mary Forte Miller, my mother and Robin’s Great-Aunt. Mother loved Cousin Altamese’s children, as she did all her nieces and nephews. We were her traveling buddies and would go visit them often. Incidentally, I believe Pannell Sr. shared with you that Robin was over our house when our mother passed. We have a special kind of love for Robin, June and Wayne. That love will remain with us eternally. God gave you two the most devoted, loving mother, and it shines through each of you and through your beautiful children. Robin’s at rest and we thank God for that!
    Love to all,
    Annettia, Marvin, Brenda, Mary, Pamela and Pannell. Can’t omit our other siblings: Patricia and Richard who are resting in the Lord along with Robin.
