Survived by her beloved husband of 36 years, Dean Schneider; children, Julie Schneider (Brian Henderson) and Andrew (Tessa) Schneider; parents, Jean Lowther, and George Smith; sisters, Heidi Waddell, Laura Rosenfield, and Diana Beckwith.
Robin graduated from Smith College and taught school in Deerfield, Massachusetts, Newark, New Jersey, and spent the last 24 years teaching second grade at Ensworth School in Nashville. An avid reader, Ms. Smith also reviewed books for Kirkus Reviews, BookPage, and the Horn Book Magazine. Knitting brought her much pleasure, and she especially enjoyed teaching her young students to knit along with their school skills. Her proudest accomplishment was watching her children grow into caring, responsible adults.
