A Special Child of God
December 22,1960 – May 25, 2014
Robin Irene (Wilson) Kassing was born and raised in Peoria Heights, Illinois. After graduating as valedictorian of her high school class, she worked a variety of jobs while simultaneously earning a Marketing Degree at Eastern Illinois University in just three and a half years. She then travelled to Oklahoma City to be with her true love, Judson P. Kassing, who proposed to her on the night of her arrival.
Robin and Judson were married in the beautiful chapel at Valparaiso University in Indiana so that family and friends in the Midwest could join the celebration.
Robin began her career at The Buyers Guide selling advertisements to businesses throughout Oklahoma City. While it was a challenging start for her career, Robin approached her job with vigor and joy. In 1985, they moved to Charlotte, NC where Robin accepted a position with Belk Store Services as coordinator of printing for over 300 stores.
After the birth of their first child, Hadley, they moved to Frisco, TX to be near Judson’s family. They were blessed with two more children, Grant and Peyton, and the love of a wonderful family and tremendous friends.
In Frisco, Robin started her toughest career as a full time mom, but it was the one she loved the most. She approached it with equal energy, dedicating her life to the development of her children that she so loved; especially to their development as faithful followers of Christ. Robin also loaned her incredible smile and efforts to many roles with the children’s schools and teams, as well as in the church and community.
Robin is survived by her husband of 30 years, Judson, and their three children, Hadley, Grant and Peyton. They will treasure her memories until they join her again.
She is also survived by her father, Robert Wilson, of Peoria Heights, IL; brother Roger Wilson and his wife Rosann of Chicago, IL and their children, Heather, Holly and Michael; sister Paula Werman and her husband Jon of Lighthouse Point, FL, and their children, Nick, Jacob and Paige; and many other extended relatives and friends.
Robin is also well loved by Judson’s family; mother, Vanita Kassing, and his “teammates”, John, Jeff, Jay and Julie, and their incredible families.
Robin is now enjoying a reunion with her loving mother and friend, Phyllis Wilson, who passed on four years earlier, and Judson’s father, Lester Kassing, who recently joined his Savior earlier in May 2014.
Robin has always been a servant minister, showing God’s love as a wife, mother, and friend. There is little she wouldn’t take on to help others. She did everything “just so”. Christ smiled on each of us through her.
We celebrate her life, and worship our heavenly Father who graciously loaned her to us for so long, and now has her in His tender, loving care, forever.
