|BROWNVILLE - Donna E. Robbins passed away Feb 9th, 2018 in her Brownville home after a long struggle with cancer. Married for 49 years, her husband Bruce E. Robbins provided loving care until the end. She is also survived by sons Jerry Robbins & wife Molly, Bruce Robbins and partner Sonya Libby, daughter Shelly Ekholm & husband Dave, granddaughter Sara Moody & husband Seth, grandson Camren Robbins, and three great-grandchildren.|
Donna was born Nov 11th 1945 in Hartland, Maine, and raised as the daughter of Alvin & Elva Goodridge of Canaan. After graduating from Hinckley high school, she joined the U.S. Navy and proudly served as a nurse, a profession she would continue until retirement.
A selfless woman, her life was centered around caring for her family and others. She loved animals, nature, and putting on great feasts whether at home or in the middle of the woods! From working with special needs children, running a boarding home for the disabled, providing hospice care, or attending to troubled adolescents...no matter her mission, she made a positive impact with her compassion, and was thought the world of by those whom lives she touched.
A private memorial service will be held in the spring. In lieu of flowers, please make any donations honoring her memory to the Bangor Humane Society.
