Nora Pauline “Robin” Danos
Nora Pauline “Robin” Danos left this world on September 9, 2019, at the age of 75. She is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 54 years, Anthony (Tony) Danos. Nora is also survived by her two children: Jeff Danos (Theresa) and Debbie Sisung (Cole), and her five grandsons: Adam Danos, Jack Danos, Rafe Danos, Eli Sisung and Luke Sisung. She was preceded in death by her parents, Norman Robin and Nora (Toups) Robin, and her sister, Nellie (Robin) McBride (Robert). She is survived by her two brothers, Floyd Robin (Beatrice) and Danny Robin (Sandra), and numerous loving relatives from near and far. Nora was a graduate of the West Jefferson High School Class of 1962 and Soule Business College. An avid gardener with an innate knack for cultivating beautiful plants, Nora shared her considerable knowledge with others when she and Tony owned Danos Nursery, which served the gardening needs of numerous homeowners on the westbank of New Orleans for many years. She was a talented seamstress who created beautiful clothes and handmade pieces. African violets and poinsettias were passions of hers and, for many Christmas seasons, she poured her energy into supplying the local wholesale market with plants of unparalleled beauty that elegantly captured the essence of the holiday. At the age of 50, Nora received a B.S. Degree in Education from the University of Holy Cross and taught school for several years. She subsequently immersed her creative talents into numerous endeavors, including becoming an accomplished baker and proprietor of Nora’s Famous Oatmeal Cookies. At the age of 68, Nora tried her hand with pastels and quickly evolved into an accomplished local artist. Her beautiful pieces capture Plaquemines Parish historical sites and can be found in homes and businesses throughout her community. Since her high school years, Nora loved to dance. At the age of 75, she could still be found cutting the rug with Tony at the Boutte Bingo Hall on Sunday evenings. For the past 30 years, Nora fought a gallant battle with the progressively debilitating disease of depression. In spite of her struggles, she accomplished many lofty goals and always spread joy to those with whom she interacted. Depression eventually robbed her of the ability to find peace and happiness. Please remember her in your prayers.
