Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We were very saddened to hear about the sudden death of Sister Robyn Reynolds OLSH, a member of the Congregation of Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.
Sister Robyn was en route to Dublin, the final leg of her journey, to participate in a retreat that she had been eagerly anticipating. Sr Robyn died on the way to Dublin at 09:30 a.m. Ireland time. Paramedics were called to meet the plane in Dublin. Sr Robyn had a cardiac arrest while they were with her. Sr Robyn died at the Beaumont Hospital in Dublin.
Sister Robyn began her journey in Darwin in 1967 teaching grade 5 at St Mary’s School. Over the years, Sr Robyn transitioned into a Theology teacher at Nungalinya College, leaving behind a profound legacy. Her ministry extended to Santa Teresa Parish, where she devoted herself to learning the Arrernte language and developing deep connections with the local community.
Sr Robyn was with us once again during the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of Nungalinya College and I had the pleasure to meet her and found her to be full of life and energy.
We give thanks for what Sr Robyn has given to us and look forward to the help and support she will send us from the fullness of life.
RIP Sr Robyn.
