Robyn Evans Hilligoss

October 31, 1969 — March 12, 2024

Mandeville, Louisiana

Robyn Lynn Evans Hilligoss, 54 of Mandeville, LA, passed away peacefully on March 12, 2024, surrounded by her family and close friends.  

Robyn was born on October 31, 1969 in Flemington, NJ to Robert and Linda Evans.  She graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, NJ in 1992 with a degree in Psychology and the Fine Arts but found her true calling in the culinary industry.  Robyn was a foodie, she loved to create meals and desserts, took pleasure in eating a delicious meal and was happiest cooking.   She had extensive experience in leading restaurants and catering kitchens.  She was known in the Mandeville area as “Chef Robyn” and had run a successful catering business for the last 10 years.  Prior to that, Robyn was the Executive Chef/Event Manager at Bella Luna Catering, as the house caterer to the Foundry in New Orleans.  

She enjoyed traveling with friends and looked forward to new adventures every year.  She particularly enjoyed her annual family vacation in Marco Island, Florida.  She loved spending time with family and friends, whether in New Jersey, Louisiana or traveling to a new adventure.  She was an avid Saints fan, and embraced her adopted home, which embraced her right back.

Robyn is survived by her father, Bob of Flemington, NJ, her brother Craig and his wife Heather of Ringoes, NJ, many extended members of the family and friends, and her beloved cat, Gus.  Robyn is also survived by her former husband, John Hilligoss of Pennsylvania.

A remembrance event is scheduled for March 28th at Middendorf’s Slidell, 1951 Oak Harbor Blvd. Slidell, LA from 4:00 – 7:00 pm.  The family will be holding a memorial in Flemington, NJ at a later date.
