We are saddened to announce that our mother, Rochelle Van Halm passed away on the evening of Tuesday, February 23rd.
Rochelle spent the last week of her life with us on a Caribbean cruise. We went snorkelling in Haiti, toured the historic sites of Falmouth, Jamaica, and visited the ruins of the Mayan city of Tulum in Mexico. We enjoyed delicious three-course meals, spectacular shows, and even a little dancing.
Near the end of the cruise her condition began to deteriorate and after flying home she was admitted to hospital. Rochelle passed away surrounded by family and friends.
Courageous and caring, she inspired many throughout her life. She will be greatly missed.
A celebration of Rochelle’s life will be held the first weekend of April. Details to follow.
All our love,
Baxter Van Halm Robinson and Kate V Robinson
