Obituary

Robin Ann Ehrmann, age 44 years, of Franklin Township, Hunterdon County, NJ, died on Monday, June 11, 2018 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York City, NY, with her loving husband Rich and her two children, Grace and Jake, by her side.

Born in Elizabeth, NJ, September 30, 1973, daughter of John Andrew and Dorothy Josephine Miezwa Kiczek of Franklin Township, Robin was raised in Elizabeth before moving to Hunterdon County in 1982. She graduated from North Hunterdon Regional High School in 1991 and then earned a B.A. in Communications from The College of New Jersey in 1995.

Robin worked in several marketing jobs after graduation, quickly excelling with her outgoing personality and drive. She built long lasting friendships that she cherished to this day.

Meeting her future husband in high school, the two soul mates dated, got engaged in 1993, married, started a family and she took on the role she would truly want to be known and remembered for: building a beautiful and strong family.

Anyone who knew Robin, understood that her family and friends were her world. Robin exhibited a true passion for helping anyone and would always put other’s needs ahead of her own. She was very humble in this regard, and found a simple joy and much peace in doing whatever she could to help better the lives of those around her.

Her volunteerism for many organizations and activities will not soon be forgotten. She did this all with a sense of humor that made anyone she met instantly comfortable. Robin was also well known for having the right words for any situation. Her positive and reassuring personality, coupled with her bright smile, made any situation bearable, even during some of life’s most difficult moments.

She instilled core values in her children and led by example. Her integrity and hard work, along with her perseverance through everything life tossed her way, are characteristics that Grace and Jake exhibit which made Robin extremely proud.

Robin was one who realized that the land of the free is because of the actions of the brave, and that we are all very lucky to live in the United States where we are blessed with many freedoms not found in other parts of the world. Robin instilled these values in her children, and it would not be an unusual sight for members of her family to show support and gratitude to those that protect us.

A true caregiver, she never wanted things to be about her and was a true warrior during her eleven plus years battling cancer. Never wanting anyone to think she was a victim, it will never be said that cancer beat her; the way she faced her illness during its various stages is a testimony to the strong and faithful spirit that resided in her.

Robin was a longtime communicant of Our Lady of Victories Church, Baptistown, NJ, where she taught CCD and participated in many other volunteer activities. Her strong faith allowed her to come to a measure of peace and though she did not want to leave her family and friends, she knew that it was a part of God’s plan. As is written in 2 Timothy 4:7-9, “I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith. From now on the crown of righteousness awaits, which the Lord, the just judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me, but to all who have longed for his appearance.” Robin is certainly in Heaven, smiling down and continuing to inspire faith, hope and love in all those who loved her, and are forever changed for the better for having known her.

Loving anything outdoors, Robin was a hiker, runner and enjoyed looking up at the stars and night sky with her family. She loved yard work, and was well known for taking care of all her own outdoor landscaping. Her work was meticulous and she could make any outdoor area a place of beauty.

A traveler, Robin enjoyed her home but also loved to travel with family, exploring and experiencing all of God’s splendor. She was known for making these family adventures quite unique and engaging.

Cooking was another part of Robin’s diverse life portfolio. She greatly enjoyed baking and cooking for family and friends, and one never left her home hungry. Meal time was important, because it was family time. Her food was unique and her family often times remarked that it was far above restaurant quality.

She was also well known for decorating her home for the Christmas season; her decorations were the first in the neighborhood to be put up and the very last to be taken down, as the Christmas season of “Hope” was her absolute favorite of all the seasons. It is this feeling of “Hope” that she put into practice not just during the holiday “season”, but every day of her life. As the famous author Emily Dickinson wrote, “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words — And never stops at all.”

Though Robin is no longer physically with us, the hope that she has instilled and inspired will never fade from existence. She will continue to live on in spirit and be there for those who need her until we all meet again in Heaven.

She was preceded in death by her mother-in-law, Ginger Ehrmann.

In addition to her parents, she is survived by her husband, Rich Ehrmann with whom she joined hands in marriage on August 19, 1995 in Queenship of Mary RC Church, Plainsboro, NJ; her two children, Grace Elizabeth Ehrmann and Jacob Andrew Ehrmann; a brother and sister-in-law, John and Terri Kiczek; three sisters and two brothers-in-law, Jackie and Eric Decker, Kim Kiczek and Jennifer and Ronnie Janek; her father-in-law, Michael Ehrmann; her sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Caitlin and Mark Bedwell, Jon and Anne Ehrmann and Randall Ehrmann and his wife, Sarah Sims; many loving extended family; and many cherished friends.

Love and prayers to your family. I was so sad to hear of Robin’s passing! She spend many of her teen years at our house with my sister, Danielle and she was always a pleasure. I’ve run into her in recent years at Shoprite and around town and we always stopped and chatted mainly about our kids. Wishing you all comfort in the coming days and know that she will always be with you until you see her again ❤️❤️

My deepest sympathy to Robin’s loved ones. I was so very sad to hear about her passing. I am honored to have grown up with Robin. We both played basketball and shared classes at Franklin Twp Elementary school, before moving on to NHHS, where we both enrolled in the graphic arts program. A few years ago we had the opportunity to catch up with one another briefly. I am thankful for all the memories I share with Robin and will treasure them always.

Robin was a force of nature that I truly enjoyed and admired. She exuded life and love for everyone around her and seemed to have a flame burning bright inside of her. Robin was simply an amazing person. May God bring your family peace. My deepest condolences.

Rich and Family- My heart breaks for each of you. With tears falling from my eyes I write this...Fellow FTS parents and Bayer colleagues, I have met Robin only a few times at various events. She is so absolutely stunning, beautiful and her personality matched her outer beauty. My family and I are here for you and your family as needed. The Lord Jesus Christ has welcomed her with open arms and although Robin will be missed here on Earth, the heavens will have one of the best to cook and garden and welcome others upon their arrival at the golden gates. God Bless. With Love, Callie Bonnetti & Family

Rich and Family I am so sorry for you loss. As you know through the years she never viewed herself as a victim but as a survivor . She never let cancer define who she was . She always managed to smile and joke in the darkest of times . She was unlike anyone i ever met and will always hold a special place in my heart . She taught me so many things but most importantly to “laugh” even in the most difficult times . Laughter for the soul can bring you peace even if you don’t feel like laughing. It was her gift . Sending you strength and courage in these dark moments ... i know she is laughing with all the angels in heaven ...
