Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - OBITUARIES -

Robin Rad­cliff Yontz, 62, of North Smith­field, RI, passed away un­ex­pect­edly on Oc­to­ber 9, 2018, in her home. She was the lov­ing wife of Thomas S. Yontz with whom she shared al­most 40 years of mar­riage. Born in Lan­caster, PA, Robin was the daugh­ter of Barbara (Si­monds) Rad­cliff and the late Richard Rad­cliff. Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from the Uni­ver­sity of Pitts­burgh with a de­gree in Child Care and De­vel­op­ment, she went on to fol­low her life’s work of teach­ing and nur­tur­ing chil­dren. She found such ful­fil­ment in work­ing along­side her friends in the North Smith­field school sys­tem, serv­ing as a Girl Scout leader, and teach­ing Sun­day School at Calvin Pres­by­te­rian Church. Robin was truly one of those spe­cial peo­ple who was born to be a mother and care­taker of oth­ers, and her great­est joy in life was rais­ing her chil­dren and later her grand­chil­dren. Robin en­joyed her var­i­ous col­lec­tions in­clud­ing glass pa­per­weights, bas­kets, teddy bears and birds. She also loved many other hob­bies such as cro­chet­ing, read­ing, stamp­ing and puz­zling, and re­ally any arts and crafts. She was a de­voted mem­ber of the Calvin Pres­by­te­rian Church in Cum­ber­land RI, where she was an or­dained dea­con. She is sur­vived, in ad­di­tion to her hus­band, by her chil­dren: Amanda Wright and her hus­band Clay­ton; Amy Kuhn and her hus­band Daniel; Zachary Yontz and his part­ner Emily Mine­hart; and Alex Yontz and his wife Stacy; lov­ing grand­chil­dren Molly, Eve­lyn, Wylder and Gun­ner; her mother Barbara Rad­cliff; and her sis­ter Lynn Ma­cadan­g­dang and Lynn’s hus­band Robert. Call­ing hours will be on Satur­day Oc­to­ber 13th, at the Keene-Brown Fu­neral Home, 445 Greenville Rd., North Smith­field, RI from 2-6PM. Rel­a­tives and friends are in­vited to at­tend her Cel­e­bra­tion of Life Ser­vice Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 14th at 3PM at Calvin Pres­by­te­rian Church 126 An­gell Road Cum­ber­land, RI 02864.
