On Thursday October 20, 2022 Robin Elaine Orlando passed away to the Lord at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia,PA. Robin was born in Atlantic City on January 31st, 1965 to her parents Robert Wilson and Dorothy Reeder Collins.
Robin graduated from Southern Regional High School Class of 1983. She was married to her husband Mike for 36 years, who she met in Atlantic City, NJ. Robin was a secretary, a customer service representative, custodian, but most importantly a home maker and mother of three.
Robin loved her children more than life itself. She traveled the country watching and supporting her Hannah play softball and spending precious time with her only daughter who she loved and affectionately called "Honey Girl." She was deeply proud to watch her son Ryan shine in little league and high school baseball and to walk the stage at Stockton University and be one of the few in her family to graduate college and receive a degree. She loved her oldest son Matthew and was proud of what he became as a man and human being. She enjoyed spending so many decades with him cleaning houses, having deep mother/son conversations, enjoying food, and teaching him the lesson of hard work since the age of 8. Her pride and joy and the apple of her eye were her three children and the way she raised them with her husband Mike and help from their heavenly father.
She loved her parents dearly. Robert(Bob), who she called "Big Daddy," and her mother Dorothy(Dot), who she missed profoundly since her passing in 2019. She loved her big sister Lynn with her intelligence and warm hearted sisterly advice and her brother Bobby, who she referred to as her "baby brother" and his fight, grit, and toughness in life. She loved joking and laughing at home with her three boys, special late night conversations with her honey girl, softball, baseball, nature, sunflowers, dogs, comedy sitcoms, the autumn season, and God, "The Good Lord" as she called him with her beautiful smile.
Robin is survived by her husband Michael and their three children, Matthew, Ryan, and Hannah. Her Father Robert, Her sister Lynn Cruse, Brother in Law Steve, her brother Robert "Bobby" Wilson, Debbie, and brother Christopher Wilson. Her nieces and nephews who she thought the world of Brandon, Lauren, Breanna, Taylor, Virginia, Robert, Sarah, and Louie. She is survived by her Aunt Donna and Uncle Joe Giberson, who she had a special admiration and love for, along with her cousins. She is survived by her parents in law Louis and Mary Orlando, her Aunt MaryLou Leigh, along with Brother and Sisters in Law Lou, Kathy, Chris, Kim, Patrick, Nancy, and Carol. She is also survived by her brothers and sisters from the south. Harry and John Collins, Rosemary Robinson, Dawn Boone Zimmerlink, and April McGowan, along with endless friendships she built over a special life with her kind soul. Robin is now reunited in the Kingdom of Heaven with her Grandmom Leona, her Grandfather Clark, Her mother Dot, and so many others she yearned to see again.
