Robin Renee Kistler
Feb. 10, 1968 to June 19, 2022
Robin Renee Kistler, sadly lost her battle to cancer on June 19. She fought a long and courageous battle. Robin was 54 years old.
Robin was adopted and was the only child of Dorothy and Frank Kistler. Her parents always made sure she knew how special she was, and how much they loved her. Robin also grew up surrounded by aunts and uncles that loved her to the end of the world.
Robin had one daughter, Emily McMickle. Robin also never failed to claim Rheaann Morris (Timothy Morris) as her daughter and friend in one. Although along the way she gained many “children” over the years of her daughter’s social life, she loved every single of one of them. Even during her worst days, she always made sure that her daughter, daughter’s fiancée, and grandchildren, Greyson McMickle and Travis Hartzog, always knew they were her world. She loved them more than life itself. If you had the chance to meet her, she’d tell you all about them and their crazy adventures. She had a love for yard selling, and thrift shopping and Greyson was always her little shopping buddy. Robin lived and fought just for another day with her babies. Over the years Robin also gained Justin Epley (Rikki Branch), Brandon Epley, Dillion Epley (Lesci Wood), Rhyliee Morris, Keagan Bollinger, and Victoria Bollinger as grandbabies to love.
Robin had a love for animals, and even ran her own business (Sea Chest II) until 2014. Sea Chest was one of her greatest adventures, doing something she loved every day. Robin spent the last year of her life crafting away, from crocheting to making wreaths and everything in between.
However, Robin’s greatest achievement was being a mamaw.
Robin was preceded in death by Dorothy Kistler (mother), Frank Kistler (father), Carrie Faulkner (aunt), and Frank Stikeleather (step brother) to name a few. Robin is survived by her daughter Emily McMickle (Hunter Hartzog), and two grandsons Greyson McMickle and Travis Hartzog.
