Robin Ann VanPelt

Robin VanPelt, 51 of High Point, NC died peacefully July 7, 2019 at Moses Cone hospital surrounded by her family. A Mass of Christian burial will be at 11 AM, Monday July 15 at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in High Point. Visitation will begin at 10am. Robin was born August 12, 1967 in Elizabeth, NJ to George and Roberta VanPelt who survive her. Robin graduated from Pennsville Memorial High School in 1985. She graduated from the University of Delaware where she received a B.S. in Early Childhood Education. Her love for learning continued when she received her Masters degree in Speech & Language Pathology from Temple University. Robin was employed with Cheshire Speech and Language Center in Greensboro and was passionate about working with young children. She was a bilingual therapist who made time for everyone. You would find her visiting various childcare centers, but mostly her “kids” were found at Head Start in Asheboro. In her twenties Robin began her battle with various health issues but never complained and showed strength in the face of adversity. She underwent a heart transplant on July 4, 1999 and remained grateful for her amazing gift every day. Robin was born to advocate for children and their education. She had a generous soul who always gave more of herself than asked. She loved her family especially her nieces and nephews. Every year she would look forward to planning their annual trip to Disney. Robin loved to travel and was always planning “the next trip”. In addition to her parents who reside in Greensboro, she is survived by her sister, Jill (Craig) Gaccione of Asheboro; nieces, Olivia and Julia Gaccione; nephews, David and Dawson Anderson of DE; aunt and uncle, Mary & Ron Kwadecius of New Jersey.

I knew Robin over 20 years, she was such a loving and caring person. She always wanted to help. Robin was known for providing coats and any others items that our families at Head Start may need. Robin will be missed dearly at RCS Head Start and our love and prayers extend the family and friends of Ms. Robin. ❤️

Dear Mr and Mrs VanPelt,
I am so very sorry for the passing of your beautiful daughter Robin. I have so many fond memories of her. From her waving Jilly and me off as we went to Acapulco on Spring Break to seeing her with her nieces Liv and Jules at the beach. She lived her life well and made a positive impact on many. She was so loved by family and friends. We will all miss her. My deepest condolences to you both.
Love,
Jill Melnick and family

Robin was my supervisor for my CF year while at Cheshire and so loved by all of her coworkers and children she worked with- she always made sure to check in on everyone- students and coworkers alike, and was adored by all. She was an amazing clinician, supervisor, and friend that was a true example of kindness, perseverance, and love. Thank you, Robin, you will truly be missed. I will always hold you in my heart as I continue to help others as you did as a SLP. <3

I met Robin on my first day working at Cheshire. After only a few moments chatting, it seemed we had been friends for some time. She will be greatly missed by the Cheshire family and the children that she served and loved. She was a special lady and our profession has lost a great SLP!
