Tim Robbins - Double Tragedy For Robbins As Mum Dies Days After Dad

Actor Tim Robbins' mother has died, less than two weeks after his father passed away.
Robbins' dad, folk singer Gil Robbins, died earlier this month (Apr11) at the age of 80 at his home in Esteban Cantu, Mexico.
Now The Shawshank Redemption star is facing further tragedy - his mother, musician Mary Robbins, passed away on Sunday (17Apr11) from a heart arrhythmia - just 12 days after Gil Robbins' death.
Mary, who was 78, became a professional musician in the 1950s after studying at the University of California in Los Angeles.
Tim has paid tribute to his beloved mum, insisting she had a "calm and cheerful demeanour, a sharp wit, a gentle spirit and a generous and loving heart".
