Kassing, Robin Irene

December 22, 1960 - May 25, 2014

Robin Kassing
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.

Services will be held at Christ Church Plano, 4550 Legacy Drive, Plano, TX 75024 at 3:00 on Saturday, May 31, 2014.  Please join us in this celebration.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to assist families with adoption at josephsdreamcoat.org.

Hi Robin, You are now at peace and we will see you again one day. I remember you and your family all the years at Gardener grade school and then Judd and his family since high school. We’ll never forget you and Eric’s performance at the grade school variety show – you were so good. It was so nice meeting you, Judd and your beautiful family four years back. Our prayers are with all those you left behind and they know you will be watching over them.

Kassing Family, your mom and wife will always be remembered! She loved you all greatly! Grant, i remember yyour mom the first day of kindergarten. Not long ago, she sent me the cutest picture of you, kenz and your other friends from grade school. We have watched you grow up and I know she was very proud of you. She was proud of all of you. . I will never forget her and I will be reminded of how wonderful she is every time I see all of you. I know this will be so hard but know you have people here to hug you, laugh with you, and cry with you. God Bless!

Judd, at times like these I find the right words are always hard to find. I have wonderful memories of Robin going back all the way to grade school. I feel so blessed to have known her. Robin has gone home to be with our Lord and she will always be with you and your family. May you feel God’s peace during this difficult time. My prayers all with all of your family.

Bob O'Brien says:

My condolences to Robin’s family. I have the sweetest memories of her as a classmate and friend at Gardener Grade School. She was a beautiful person and I’m sure she touched many lives in her loving way.

Scott and Kim Jepsen says:

Jud,
Our hearts are heavy with your loss. You and the kids are in our prayers. Robyn was special. We look forward to seeing her on the other side. Love and prayers, Kim

Jeff Vallosio says:

Jud and family,
I’m very sorry for your loss but thankful for the testimony of Robin “now enjoying a (heavenly) reunion” with her mom, your dad and others. One of my best memories of PHHS homecoming parades is (if I’m not mistaken) of Sheila Maroney and Robin dressed as clowns walking the parade route.

May God grant you peace during these difficult days. It has been my pleasure to be acquainted with the members of the Kassing family for many years. I know the strength of your family and it’s Christian faith will enable you to endure this. My unflinching respect and my most passionate prayers go out to you now and always.

Amber Shill says:

Robin was a beautiful person inside and out. She was an incredible wife, mother and friend. I feel blessed to have called her my friend for the 4 brief years my family lived in Plano. I know she will be greatly missed.My thoughts and prayers are with Jud, Hadley, Grant and Peyton.

Gina Abbott-Owen says:

Jud and family- I have just learned of Robin’s passing. So,so sorry for your loss. Robin and I were each other’s “first friends,” and met at the age of 2. Our families were friends. Their were times when she and I were inseparable. Last seeing her in 1981 when my father passed away. Robin was there for me as she always was. But I moved out of state shortly after and later she moved and we lost touch. My heart is broken. Jud, you gave her the wonderful life that she was so deserving of. Seeing her mother about 15 years ago on a shopping trip, all she could do is talk about Robin and her family and how happy she was and the beautiful home you shared. I know nothing anyone says or does eases the emptiness and pain you must feel, but know that she is with the Lord now and he always takes care of his most precious angels.
