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.
