Robyn Facher Berger, 72, of Atlanta passed away Monday, June 1, 2015, in her home of 49 years. She was born April 4, 1943, the daughter of Helene and Bernard Facher, may his memory be a blessing.

In addition to her mother, Robyn is survived by her beloved husband of over 50 years, Martin; her daughters, Lisa and Lori, and her son, Eric. She was the loving mother-in-law for Chip Boardman, David Bryan and Melissa Lerman and an enthusiastic, involved and proud “Nana” for Ross and Allison Boardman and Benjamin and Ella Berger. Robyn will be missed greatly by her close-knit family and friends. She was always the go-to person for all in need, whether it be for hospitality, health care or a simple favor. Robyn was an inspiration to her community. She helped transform attitudes toward and care of people with developmental disabilities in the greater Atlanta area. Although she received every possible award for her services, only improvement in the lives of others mattered to her.
