February 9, 2017:  It is with sadness that I pass on the sudden passing of a Lafayette Class of 1980 classmate, Robin Marie (Deal) Forrest on February 7, 2017. Robin was our Senior Class VP.  Her celebration of life service will be held Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 2 pm in Yorktown, VA.  See obituary and information below.

YORKTOWN - Robin Marie Forrest, 54, passed away on Tuesday, February 7, 2017. Robin was a native of Williamsburg, VA and a lifelong area resident. She graduated from Lafayette High School in 1980 and worked as a nurse for over 20 years, recently at Yorktown Family Practice. Robin will be remembered for how loving and caring she was to everyone she knew. She exemplified the meaning of the word 'mother' and was truly loved by all. She is survived by her husband of 22 years, Greg Forrest, her daughter, Alexis Forrest of Yorktown, her sons, Ryan Stephenson (Colleen) of Williamsburg and Patrick Stephenson (Fiancé, Stephany) of Smithfield, her mother, Diane Hedrick of Williamsburg, her father, Thomas Hogge of Gloucester and her grandchildren, Brayden, Austin and Caylee.
