Robin Kavitz, 59, of Hudson, passed away Saturday, Dec. 6, surrounded by her family and dearest friends as she put her battle against FTD and ALS to rest.
Her loving daughter Ashley said Robin chose the perfect moment for her journey to heaven. She was dressed in pajamas covered with glasses of red wine on a sunny St. Nicholas Day, the beginning of her favorite holiday season.
Robin was born and raised in Owatonna, Minn., by her parents Marvin and Donna Kavitz. She grew up on the family farm, one of five children. She graduated from Medford High School in 1973.
Robin began a career in advertising at the Owatonna People’s Press before moving onto Mankato and finally to Hudson where she served as the advertising director for the Hudson Star Observer for 10 years. Leaving advertising behind, Robin became a popular local realtor with a reputation for her innate sense of style and design. She was a successful member of the Hudson business community for close to 25 years.
Robin had a well-deserved reputation for making the ordinary extraordinary, all while wearing very high heels. She was always providing homeowners with decorating help including providing her own home furnishings and ornaments from her extravagant Christmas trees.
Robin was never happier than when she was traveling the world with Ashley, her family or any of her many good friends. She was an avid fan of the heat in Palm Springs, Calif., the dazzling life in Las Vegas and the grandeur of Paris.
Ashley knows her mother is now staging a fabulous white party in heaven wearing a beautiful dress, fancy high heels and sipping a glass of wine with her beloved nephew Chad Jones, her good friend Brett Weller, her father Marvin Kavitz, uncle Tony Kavitz and aunt Dortha Kavitz.
She is survived by her daughter Ashley and constant supporter Nicholas Yoder, mother Donna Kavitz and siblings Paul Kavitz, Dale (Jeannie) Kavitz, Dolly Jones, and Todd (Camille) Kavitz as well as many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends around the world.
A public graveside service will be 9:30AM Sunday November 22 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Cemetery on O’Keefe Road in Hudson. In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to the family.
