15. Anna Devane
This hits the bottom of the list because there is a silver lining to the story. Sure, Anna Devane, along with love (at that time) Robert Scorpio passed away in a boat explosion in 1992 leaving a young Robin as an orphan. It was simply devastating. It seemed like the young family had just come together, only to be ripped apart. However, the good news is both Anna (and Robert) miraculously came back to life in 2001. They did miss a huge chunk out of their daughter’s life, but at least they were still around to enjoy new moments with her as she became a mom and wife.
