It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Robyn Ann Schleith. Born April 13, 1961 in Burns Lake.  Passed away at home March 21, 2017 in Kelowna with her family at her side.

Robyn was predeceased by her father Joe Lambert in 2010. Robyn spent her growing years in Burns Lake where she graduated high school. She continued her education at CNC in Prince George.  She worked for BC Tel in Burns Lake and Vancouver, she moved to Kelowna and worked for CIBC.  Robyn spent many seasons volunteering with the Kelowna Minor Hockey Association. Her most recent job was noon hour supervisor at Anne McClymont Elementary where she was lovingly referred to as Mrs. S. The family would like to invite relatives and friends to a Celebration of Life at the Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC on March 26, 2017 at 2:00 pm. We would like to thank the staff of Anne McClymont for the meals and flowers and friends, too many to mention, you know who you are.

In lieu of flowers the family wishes that donations be made to the Anne McClymont PAC, or charity of your choice.

Until we meet again…

We are your kiddos,

You are our Mom.

The best of friends,

  • My heartful love and sympathy to all the family – I was shocked and saddened to hear about Robyn’s passing. Though we hadn’t seen each other for a very long time we always kept in touch through Christmas cards and social media. I will always have very fond memories of Robyn as she was such a warm gentle and thoughtful person who gave graciously of herself. You were all blessed to have shared your lives so closely with such a wonderful lady and her soul will live within you all forever. Robyn – til we meet again – love to you xo Carolyn (Mike, William and Emily) Shannon

  • Ervin, Ben & Braden, We are SO very sorry to hear of Robyn’s passing. She was such a loving dedicated mom and that same care so often extended to Karson and i’m sure many other of your friends. It was an honour to have shared many “mom” moments as you boys grew up. From when you guys were more concerned about 1/2 time snack than the actual soccer game, through many sleep overs and biking adventures. Together we watched your antics with pride, suppressed fears of you getting hurt and Robyn’s worry that Karson was maybe still hungry, and shared the youthful joy our boys were so lucky to experience together. May all of the memories of a very special woman bring you peace and comfort and even make you smile. Love and hugs to you all, Deidre, Ron, Karson and Evan.

  • Jo-Ann and I are so saddened by the passing of our beautiful friend Robyn.

    I was lucky to have originally meet Robyn way back in 1981-82 when I was a new hire at Burns Lake, with BC TEL and Robyn was hired to replace Judy Shand who left for Vancouver.

    We went on a few trips to Mexico, seen Robyn in Las Vegas and recently spent some time with Robyn when I was visting Kelowna last August

    Just a pure wonderful person and we will miss our angel forever.

  • We are so sorry to hear of Robyn’s passing. Logan is away on his mission and has very limited communication access, but I know he would want me to send his love. He spent so many wonderful summer days biking, playing and swimming under Robyn’s kind and watchful care. Our prayers will be with your family.

  • We write this note with great sadness. We have so many fond memories of the opportunities we shared with Robyn and the Schleith family. Whether that be coaching their amazingly talented boys, to driving the winter roads on the way to or from hockey weekends, to laughing with Erv or sharing a meal on your lovely deck overlooking Kelowna. Our thoughts reach out to the entire family. Robyn, you are an amazing wife, mom and friend. RIP. Dave, Nathalie and Eli Risso.

  • I am so so very sorry to hear this sad news. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. Robyn was a very dear childhood friend, we shared so many great times, playing together as neighbours,figure skating, curling together and winning gold, always kept in touch as we went our separate ways marrying and raising a family, our Burns Lake roots kept our connection. Robyn will be forever in my heart as a wonderful kind person who would do anything for you. My deepest sympathy for her husband Ervin, and boys Ben and Braden and of course Bonnie and Kelly and their extended family, I am thinking of all of you. I will live stream the service from Toronto.

  • Ervin, Boni, Kelly, Ben and Braden; Our family will remember Robyn for her kindness, her humour and her genuine thoughtfulness for friends and family.
    We’ll remember Robyn for her amazing organizational skills and the many hours she put in assisting the coaches of the boy’s hockey teams. Always wanting to be involved and doing her share and more.

    Robyn was our Christmas angel.

    We are sorry not to be with you on this very difficult day but we know that you have the support of many friends and family. From Hawaii we send the sound of the waves, the wind in the palm trees and the warmth of the sun to you all and especially Robyn. Our thoughts are with you.

  • Dear Erv, Ben & Braden, please accept our deepest sympathy at this very sad time… so very sorry to hear about Robyn’s passing.
    We enjoyed her sense of humor and after she told Ross of her childhood nickname, Robin Redbreast, he teased her all the time.
    One day in the Save-On Store he called out the name to a lady down the aisle only to discover it wasn’t Robyn. She will be greatly missed by all.
