“ONE DOOR CLOSES, A BETTER DOOR OPENS”
Vivian “Robyn” Tosoff was born June 1st 1920 in Kelowna, BC, the first child of Ralph Flint and Mabel Pilling.
The family moved to Vancouver where Robyn attended Carlton School.
In 1939 she took a course in dressmaking and power machine operating, and sewing would be one of her many passions.
Robyn met her husband Ted at a dance in Vancouver in 1948 and on June 9th of that year they were married.
With three sons, they would live in Richmond, Burnaby, and Langley but White Rock was the place Robyn loved and would call home.
Robyn was able to continue her passions in piano and music theory where she got her Royal Conservatory of Music certificate in both.
Always wanting to better herself and with a lifelong love of learning, she would get her High School equivalency and take a course in Bookkeeping to help Ted in his growing construction business.
Robyn was very spiritual, studying the Bible and going to church, where she met and made many long-term friends and volunteered her time to the less fortunate.
Travel was another passion and Robyn was able to see a great deal of Canada, the USA, Europe and the South Pacific in her many journeys.
She was an avid writer and would document her trips, her dreams and her life.
Two weeks ago Vivian and Ted were entertaining the residents of Morgan Place with their ballroom dancing, a passion they shared throughout their life.
Vivian was a Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Friend to so many, a very kind hearted and gentle soul with beautiful blue eyes and a radiant simile that will forever be missed.
A Funeral Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 15, 2006 at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 – 28th Avenue, Surrey.

but by its depth”
