Robin L. Buchler - Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Homes & Crematory

Robin L. Buchler

May 24, 1956 - February 28, 2017

Robin Lynn Buchler, age 60, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, February 28, 2017, after courageously battling cancer for four years.

She was born in Baltimore, MD, and moved to Troy, PA shortly after her birth. She graduated from Troy Area High School in 1974. Robin began working on her college degree at Bloomsburg University and then graduated from Penn State University. She traveled and worked all around the world before settling in Wilmington, DE in 1992. She has worked at The Terrace at Greenhill, NVF, Connectiv, and for the past twelve years at Brookdale Assisted Living in Hockessin as their Business Office Coordinator.

Robin could be described as full of life, funny, kind, caring, good-hearted, and one-of-a-kind. Everyone that had the privilege of knowing Robin knew that she was completely non-judgmental and everyone’s confidant. She loved spending time at the beach with family and friends and found it relaxing and enjoyable.

She is predeceased by her father, Robert Buchler. She is survived by her mother, Nelda Kendall and her husband, Jack. Also surviving her is her brother, Brett (Carol) of Roxana, DE; nephews, Baptiste from San Diego, CA, Jacob and Caleb from Roxana and nieces, Sarah Buchler and Abigail Givens (Aaron), also from Roxana. In addition, Robin is survived by Guy Buchler (Fern) of Fenwick Island, DE and their children Patrick of Elkridge, MD and Christine Storm (Tyler) of Glen Burnie, MD, and longtime friend, Joe Corridori. Anyone that knew Robin would agree that this list of family would not be complete without mentioning the kids, Ling, Iggi, and especially Harriett, her beloved hairless cat who passed just a few days before her.

We would like to thank everyone for their calls, cards, thoughts and prayers during Robin’s illness.

Services and burial will be in Troy, PA at a later date as Robin wished.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Robin’s honor to Vitas Hospice, 100 Commerce Drive, Suite 302, Newark, DE 19713 or Faithful Friends, 12 Germay Drive, Wilmington, DE 19804.
