Katherine Robin Wong Evans graduated from Immaculate Heart High School in 1985. After her death on June 19, 2021, her classmates donated to IHHS in honor of her memory. They wrote this about her:
Kind. Strong. Graceful. Creative. Brilliant.
Our cherished sister, Robin Wong Evans, Class of 1985, was a rare and amazing soul who could ski down a mountain, whip up a gourmet meal or a couture gown, and explain a physics problem with equal adeptness.
She carried her talent and intelligence with an indescribable effortlessness and generously shared her gifts with so many of us.
As a woman of great heart, she embodied the spirit of the Immaculate Heart. We feel that there could be no better tribute to Robin than a gift to nurture and support scholars who demonstrate exceptional talent in art and science.
Please join us in honoring Robin Wong Evans by making a gift in her honor to Immaculate Heart High School.
I know that Robin in turn cherished her time at IHHS. I can see from their words how the girl they knew in high school became the woman I loved. I recently watched the documentary 'Rebel Hearts' (2021) about Immaculate Heart and it became obvious to me how the progressive, political, and feminist ideals of the school inspired the woman I married.
And so to honor both Robin and Robin’s memories of her high school, I am endowing a scholarship in her name at Immaculate Heart.
I have found that others who knew Robin have asked how they might contribute in her name. If you would like to do so here, that would be appreciated. Not for the amount that you might give, but because you cared enough to give. I thank you for that.
She is loved and she is missed.
