Moira Robbins Obituary

Moira grew up in Willunga, a small seaside town near Adelaide in South Australia, the younger sister of Tony and Brian Liddy. An explorer ahead of her time, Moira’s travels took her to all corners of the world. After commencing her teaching career in Adelaide and Darwin, she boarded a boat for London, where she taught for a few years before her next post at a school run by the British Embassy in Lima, Peru. Her adventures spanned Europe, North Africa, and South America, making connections with countless people across the globe with her trademark charisma, warmth and flair. Her journey then took her to Calgary, where she was assigned to teach at a school at which her husband-to-be, Leo, was assistant principal. 

After returning to Australia for a few years around the passing of her parents, Moira returned to Canada in 1974, and she and Leo were married that fall. Moira’s fascination with the world and her passion for people never diminished, as she poured her heart and soul into her children, her family and her community. Moira’s legacy lives on not just through her family, but also the countless lives that she touched. She was truly a unique and unforgettable woman, who shall be missed dearly by many. She left us with so many gifts, including adventure and travel, kindness and a friendly wave to everyone, a laugh and a good party, a love for reading and education, community, cheering for the home team…

Moira is survived by her husband of 49 years, Leo Robbins; her children Sarah, Michael (Terri), & Tim (Peter McMinn); her grandchildren Peter & Hannah Robbins and Emily Bopp; and her brother Brian Liddy in Australia. She was predeceased by her parents Michael & Anne Liddy, her brother Tony and sister in law Pat. There were many family and friends that touched her life and went before her and many that she leaves behind to miss her.
