Sister Robert was always an inspiration to me. She held fast to the Catholic Church. She had such a strong personal relationship with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ that she was an example to us all, especially priests. Wherever she went she was identifiable as a Nun, and remembered for all her good works carried out i the name of of Christ. +RIP.

May dear Robert rest in peace. I am sure that she is now enjoying the reward of a faithful life of Josephite service. I always felt a special connection with Robert as from the day that I entered the convent, way back in 1965, she always called me "Twinnie" due to the supposed resemblance that we shared. So glad to have been able to share some time with her earlier this year when I was in Australia.

In memory of Leon’s dear cousin Sr Robert. We remember her lovely smile and love of family. But most of all devotion to her vocation as a Josephite nun and especially the support of the vulnerable in the Adelaide community and her frequent visits to indigenous patients at QEH.

Dear Sister Roberts. Thank you for your friendship and your pearls of wisdom. I loved our little talks after Sunday Mass. You were a beacon of light to the world wearing your Josephite Habit proudly for the Lord. You were an inspiration to us all. +RIP dear Sister.
