Our beloved Lucilda B. Robinson, 88, lovingly known as Birdie, passed away peacefully on August 22, 2020 at Jewish General Hospital, Montreal.


Born in Kemp’s Hill, Jamaica, Birdie migrated to Montreal in the 1960s in search of independence and success, where she found both.  Birdie was a proud Jamaican, but an even prouder Canadian and considered Montreal her forever home.  Despite living in Canada for longer than she lived in Jamaica, her Patois and Jamaican accent remained strong and proud throughout her lifetime.


During her frequent visits to the United States, Birdie could always be seen with a word search in hand on the long bus trip.  While she missed and enjoyed spending time with her family in the US, Birdie always hurried back to her home in Montreal.


Although she didn’t have any biological children of her own, she raised and unconditionally loved her niece, Alice Robinson, and her nephew, Gregg Robinson, and considered them her own.  She was extremely proud of the adults and parents they grew to be.  Birdie could always be heard bragging on them and their children.  She adored Alice’s children, Sydney Chloe Eloise Diamond and Jordan Joshua Xavier Prise, as well as Gregg and Maryam’s children, Roya and Nima George Augustus Robinson.


Birdie loved to cook and bake from scratch, all with love.  She enjoyed nurturing and taking care of others.  In addition to a giving and loving nature, there was also a zesty and fiery personality.  No matter what, you always knew where you stood with Birdie.  She had a strong heart and mind and to her credit, was never afraid to let them be known.


Birdie had a large and devoted family, as one of seven children.  She is predeceased by her parents Robert and Alice Robinson, sisters, Phyllis Stewart and Alvira (Vira) Robinson.  She is survived by brothers, Rudolph (Ruddy) Robinson, Buxton (John) Robinson (spouse Gwendolyn), Robert (Bobby) Robinson and sister, Silence (Sarah) Robinson (spouse Dwight).  She also leaves behind to love and grieve her passing, her best friend, confidant and sister-in-law, Judith Maxwell Robinson (Robert’s spouse).  There are also a host of loving nieces, nephews, extended family, friends and neighbors who will forever remember Birdie in their hearts and minds.

Messages for the Family of Robinson, Lucilda

From: Andrew "Pat"

I will miss Aunt Birdie. Always down-to-earth and always had a listening ear for for her nieces and nephews. I remember the cheerful conversations and time we spent together chatting and sharing views on life. I am sad the the prevailing condition prevented family from being physically around her, but i will continue to remember the good time and happy conversation and cheerful laughter.

May Aunt Birdie Rest In Peace
From: Grey Family

Please accept our deepest condolences to you and your family. Know that Aunt Birdie will always be missed.

I haven’t seen Aunt Birdie in quite a few years but she left a lasting impression on me. Just the thought of her brings a smile to my face. She was and still is a shining light. She will be remembered very fondly.

Toutes mes sympathies, et malgré la douleur et le vide, prenez courage, car notre seigneur Jésus va éliminer notre dernier ennemi « la mort » .
Alors j’ai entendu une voix forte venant du trône dire : « Voyez ! La tente de Dieu est avec les humains, et il habitera avec eux, et ils seront son peuple. Et Dieu lui-​même sera avec eux. 4 Et il essuiera toute larme de leurs yeux, et la mort n’existera plus ; il n’y aura plus ni deuil, ni cri, ni douleur. Les choses anciennes ont disparu. Révélation 21
