Robin was from Beardy’s First Nation, Saskatchewan. Robin had always wanted to be an RCMP member. She followed proudly in her father’s footsteps when she graduated in 2001 from the Regina RCMP Depot. A single mother to daughter Shayne, she overcame personal adversity, including correcting her eyesight, in order to join the force.
The woman known as Piyesis (or bird, in plains Cree) became an inspiration to her family and to the young people who lived on her reserve. Her first posting was to Beauval, Saskatchewan before going to Spiritwood, Sask. She was very popular in the Spiritwood community she served so diligently.
