(Stephanie) Robin Warren Robin, born August 11, 1961 in Columbia, South Carolina, passed away on April 22, 2019 at the age of 57 after a difficult battle with esophageal cancer. She will be sorely missed by her family and innumerable friends.
She is survived by her parents C. Thomas and Margaret Warren of Medfield, brothers Chuck Warren of Ashland and Chris Warren (Mia Humphrey) of Medway and sister Kim Warren Wersal (Jim) of Montrose, CO, former sister-in-law Diane Warren and niece and nephew Rachel and Andrew Warren of Derry, NH, niece Jasmine Duff (Jon) of Barrington, NH, and long-time boyfriend Joe Sabbag of Millis, dear friend Kelly Good of Akron, OH and Nancy Madigan of Bellingham, all of whom spent many hours watching over her and helping her family in Robin’s final days.
While born in South Carolina, Robin moved to Medfield with her family at the age of 10, and has been very much a Medfield girl all these years. She graduated from Medfield High School in1979, then briefly attended Worcester State College before an accident left her legally blind. During high school she worked at Friendly’s, later at Will’s, Cumberland Farms, Potpourri, and other businesses around town. Many Medfield residents will know her as their favorite cashier at Shaw’s where she has worked for the last 12 years and was much-loved for her unfailing sense of humor (she never met a joke she couldn’t remember FOREVER and wasn’t more than happy to share), her cheerful smile, her eagerness to make sure everyone got the best deal possible and her willingness to use candy to bribe unruly children into good behavior. Robin made friends wherever she went. She had an amazing ability to find common ground with ANYONE she met. She was generous, brave, positive, smart, and very funny. She would give you the shirt off her back, and would fight like a tiger for those she loved and anyone who was an underdog. She loved music and socializing with her friends; she was artistic and loved collecting beautiful things. The world is a little duller place without her bright spark. We will miss her terribly.
A celebration of life is planned for June 15th at 6pm at the Bogastow club, Ridge St., Millis, MA.
