Obituary of Robin M. Jacobs

Wayland – Robin M. Jacobs, 68 years of age, passed away Wednesday May 1, 2024, at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY. Robin was born April 12, 1956, in Lodi, OH the daughter of Harold and Elizabeth (Dickens) Owens. Robin grew up in Dansville, NY and resided in Wayland, NY for a number of years. She moved to Black Lake, NY in 1985 and returned to Wayland in 1998 where she lived until her passing. Robin and Gordie Sick met in 1998 and began their epic love story, spending 23 years together as best friends and partners. Gordie passed away January 2, 2021, and Robin never got over losing the love of her life. There is comfort in knowing they are now reunited. Robin worked as a Pharmacy Technician at Tops Markets in Dansville for over 20 years, retiring recently. She volunteered at the Vincent House in Wayland and was active within the Perkinsville Fire Department. Robin was a wonderful, giving person who was always willing to help out wherever she could. She was the most supportive mother that a daughter could ever ask for and she was an amazing grandmother to her cherished grandson Blake. She loved her family, friends, and community; always offering a smile or cheerful word to pick people up. In her spare time, Robin enjoyed reading, cooking, giving treats to any pet she came across, and gathering with family and friends. She will be immensely missed by all. Robin was pre-deceased by her parents, Harold and Elizabeth Owens; her stepmother, Beverly Owens; her brothers, David Kuhn and William Smith; her stepson Kent Jacobs and her beloved companion and soul mate, Gordie Sick.
