Robin Emrick, 48 years of age, passed away Feb. 8, 2014, from Parkinsonism, a degenerative brain condition for which, at present, there is no known cause or cure.
Robin was born in Washington, District of Columbia, Oct. 5, 1965. She attended Holy Cross High School in Kennsington, Md. (Class of 1983) and was a graduate of Denison University (Class of 1987).
