Robyn Gerson Barocas, 48, of Johns Creek, passed away Nov. 8, 2019. Robyn was born Dec. 30, 1970, in New Orleans, La., where she graduated from Metairie Park Country Day High School. She went on to attend the University of Georgia, where she was in Sigma Delta Tau sorority. She graduated in 1992 with a degree in education, and she moved to Atlanta after college.

She is survived by her husband of 22 years Scotty Barocas; daughters Sophie and Lily Barocas; parents Marshall and Jane Gerson of New Orleans; brother and brother-in-law, Scott Gerson and Nick Brown of New York City; sister and brother-in-law, Keri Gerson Pollock and Mark Pollock of New Orleans; and nephew and niece, Max and Sarah Pollock of New Orleans.

For the past 15 years, Robyn has worked as an executive assistant at Monterey Wealth in Sandy Springs. She was a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. Diagnosed with cancer three years ago, she bravely fought the illness until the very end. She was a devoted mother to Sophie and Lily and was happiest when with family and friends. As a child she attended Camp Barney Medintz for 10 years, and as an adult, she worked there in the infirmary for eight more years while Sophie and Lily attended camp.

She will be missed by many but leaves wonderful memories with everyone who knew her. The family would like to give their utmost thanks to Robyn’s hospice team, Jenny Buckley, Cindy Hopkins and Barbara Davis, for their service and devotion.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Weinstein Hospice, 3150 Howell Mill Road, Atlanta, GA 30327, and to Camp Barney Medintz, 4165 Highway 129 N., Cleveland, GA 30528.
