I had the great pleasure of working with Robin as a student in high school and college. Later, she showed some of her musical accomplishments through her students who were very well prepared. Most times that I heard them, I could tell they'd been taught by Robin. Even more important than her love for music was her love for her family. You could always see it in her smiles when she shared pictures of the family.

Students from Sudlow

October 21, 2019

Mrs. Ciccotelli was a great music teacher and an inspiration to all the band members and everyone around her. Me and my fellow classmates were in band for Sudlow in 6th grade, the year she retired. She was mine and many others favorite due to her being so friendly and caring of all students and understanding when a student didn't know what notes to play. She will be greatly missed and always be in our hearts.

Sincerely,
Mark Pereira and Carter Speer

To Gino and family :
I know the pain of your loss runs deep! My thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the days to come as you face this loss.
Robin was an extraordinary woman – a very caring person with deep empathy for others. When she had her own cross to bear she reached out to me and offered love and support as Kirk and I went through his health crisis. What kind of person does that?
An angel, that’s who!
No wonder she was loved and respected by so many – including me and Kirk.
With our love.
