Robin Watson

Lyme, N.H. — Robin Watson died Wednesday, July 25, 2018, at the age of 64 surrounded by family. She was born Sept. 18, 1953, in Manchester, N.H., the daughter of late Herbert W. Bean Jr and Carol (Bobby) V. (Hayward) Bean. Robin attended Exeter High School for two years and graduated from Stevens High School in Claremont, N.H. in 1971. She then went on to attend Bay State College in Boston, MA where she graduated with a degree in Business.

In her early years, Robin fought on the campaign trail for many Republican candidates. Robin was tenacious and strong willed, fitting in well with the political scene. She was never afraid to speak her mind and was loved endlessly for that.

Robin married her husband William (Bill) Watson in Hopkinton, N.H. in 1989. She put her career on hold to raise her two children, William and Caroline. She was a devoted mother, planning extravagant birthday parties for her kids and even coaching her daughter’s basketball team for a year despite never playing herself.

Robin could light up any room with her spunky personality and bellowing laugh. She was a committed colleague and wonderful friend, forming strong friendships with just about everyone she met. Robin kept in touch with classmates from every milestone in her life – she was the party planner for all the reunions or gatherings of her friends. Staying connected with the ones she loved was what kept her going for so many years.

Robin lived for her family. She loved going on vacations and hiking with her husband and two children. She especially loved her pets over the many years even welcoming the mouse her daughter brought home into the family.

Robin will be remembered for her unbelievably sarcastic sense of humor and her ability to drive you crazy but make you smile simultaneously. She fought courageously until the very end, never losing hope and fighting every step of the way for her family. We will all miss her infectious laugh, her insurmountable kindness, and her genuine character.

Robin is predeceased by her husband Bill and survived by her mother Bobby; her two children, William and Caroline; and her sister Carol.

A celebration of Robin’s life will be held on August 18 th at 11AM at the Lyme Congregational Church in Lyme.
