Robin was born in Schenectady New York on the 6th of July 1960. She passed away on the 3rd of March 2021 at the Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital, Vero Beach, Florida while awaiting surgery.
Robin was a dedicated and caring wife, mother, and grandmother. She was employed as a hairdresser in the Schenectady area, and later in Vero Beach.
Robin was a beautiful person both inside and out. We will always remember her beautiful blue eyes. She was outgoing, readily engaged in conversation, was always a willing listener, and fun to be around. Robin had a great laugh and enjoyed living life. Since retiring to Florida, Robin’s loves were many. She loved her family, her dogs, her pool, water aerobics with her friends at Village Green, and garage “sale-ing” with her husband. Robin also loved playing bingo with her sister, enjoyed a good meal out, and really loved and never tired of being at the beach–whether in the sand or on the boardwalk having coffee with Tom.
In addition to being her husband’s best friend, she was her sister’s best friend.
Robin survived the passing of her father, Robert “Bob” Norwood who passed recently on 18 February, her mother Barbara Seahorn Barrera, and her brother Richard “Ricky” Norwood.
Robin is survived by her husband, Tom of Vero Beach; children, Crystal Meddaugh (Ed) of Tampa Florida, and Tiffany Sickles (Craig Bowers) of Vero Beach; sister, Debra Daum (John) of Swansea, Illinois; step-mother, Shirley Norwood of Schenectady, New York; step-siblings, Kathy Vega and Bobby Vega of Schenectady, New York; sister-in-law, Pat Norwood (Floyd Bourne) of Cooperstown, New York; twelve grandchildren, a great grandchild, as well as a host of other relatives and friends.
These are too few words to describe a life story that deserves so much more. Robin loved and was loved by many. She will be missed dearly by all, especially her husband Tom who she was with for more than 40 years. As each of you honor Robin’s memory, celebrate her life, remember her smile, and find comfort in your memories. She would have wanted that for each of us.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made in Robin’s name to the Humane Society of Vero Beach (hsvb.org) or to other nonprofit organizations that serve your community.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
