Robin J. Gorton, 72, of Bristol


BRISTOL — Robin J. Gorton, 72, passed away Friday, Dec. 16, 2022, surrounded by family at her home in Bristol. She was born on Oct. 29, 1950, in Middlebury, the daughter of Richard and Vivian (Pecor) Austin.

Robin’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her pride and joy. She took them every chance that she had and made memories with them that they will never forget. Her hobby was her gardens. She took great pride in them and was very proud to show them off each year. She certainly had a green thumb.

Robin is survived by her four boys: Ron Gorton Jr. and partner Kirstein, Randy Gorton, Ross Gorton and wife Heather, and Jackie Gorton and wife Katie, as well as daughter-in-law Michelle Gorton. Robin also leaves behind many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her siblings, Roxanne Smith and partner Bud, Richard Austin Jr. and wife Penny, and Jack Austin and wife Carol also survive her.

Robin was predeceased by her husband, Ronald Gorton Sr.; her parents, Richard and Vivian (Pecor) Austin; and her grandson Jacob Gorton, whom she called her Little Sweet Pea.

In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Addison County Home Health and Hospice, P.O. Box 754, Middlebury, VT 05753. To send online condolences to her family please visit ◊
