THE HONOURABLE MADAM JUSTICE ROBYN MOGLOVE DIAMOND August 8, 1952 - May 29, 2018 With deep sorrow, the family of the Honourable Robyn Moglove Diamond announce her passing, with her husband and her sister by her side, in the early morning of May 29 following a courageous battle with cancer. Robyn was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in the summer of 1952. She moved to Winnipeg with her late parents, Monte and Marion Moglove at the age of one. Her parents were her guiding light, and provided her with a love of family, travel, hard work, and shopping. A graduate of the University of Manitoba's school of law, Robyn was passionate about family law and child protection. In the early part of her career, she served as director of the Family Law Branch of the Department of Justice. In 1989, at the age of 38, Robyn was appointed a Justice of the Court of Queen's Bench, where she served in the Family Division until her retirement last September. She served longer than any other female judge in Manitoba. In her professional capacity, Robyn was Canada's representative to the International Tribunal on Child Abduction at the Hague. One of Robyn's greatest passions was travel, and her preferred companions were her husband Harvey, and their sons, Richard and Michael. She visited over 60 countries, and like her father was always planning the next trip. Robyn also loved spending time at home with Harvey in Garden City, West Hawk Lake and Florida. Robyn is survived by Harvey, her best friend and husband of 43 years, her sons, Richard and Michael, sister Jo-Ann Chapman and her husband Arthur; sister-in-law Sandra Tapper; and many cousins, nieces, a great-nephew, and countless friends. She will be missed by those she touched personally and professionally. Funeral services were held on May 31 at Shaarey Zedek Synagogue. Interment was at Shaarey Zedek Cemetery, where she is resting eternally near her parents and grandmothers. Pallbearers were her nieces, Shari Chapman and Jamie and Jody Tapper; and friends, Marty Greenfield, Geoffrey Katz and Neil Swirsky. The family would like to thank the many friends, neighbours, and relatives for their endless acts of kindness over the last several months. From cards to visits, flowers to food, these gestures meant the world to Robyn and such thoughtfulness brightened her days. In lieu of flowers, those who wish are encouraged to make a donation in Robyn's memory to the Honourable Robyn Moglove Diamond Scholarship Fund at the University of Manitoba Faculty Law. This will allow Robyn to help others posthumously as she did while alive. Anyone wishing to make a donation, can do so at the following: 200-137 Innovation Drive Winnipeg, MB R3T 6B6 Online: Please direct your gift to the Honourable Robyn Moglove Diamond Memorial Scholarship in Law.
