Robyn Duvall DeLorenzo passed away on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, at the age of 43, at her home in Montclair, New Jersey. A loving wife and mother, Robyn is survived by her husband Jim, her two children Avalina and Luca, her sister Michelle and parents Virginia and Jerome, and her grandmother Ruth. She leaves behind loving in-laws Patricia, James, and Jennifer, as well as a network of extended family and close friends.
Robyn was born on October 5, 1979, in Southampton, NY, and spent her childhood in nearby Riverhead before attending North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. After graduating in 2002 with a degree in Business Management, Robyn settled in Washington, DC, where she met her husband and started a family, before moving to Montclair in 2012.
Robyn will be remembered by her family and friends as someone who cared about her children above all else, who prioritized the needs and wants of others before her own, and who was deeply committed to volunteering and charitable work. She traveled often, to locales both near and far, but was most at peace while lying on a beach, eyes closed, listening to the waves, as the sun warmed her face.
Robyn’s family is hosting a private celebration of her life on December 3, 2022, at the Montclair Art Museum. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Robyn DeLorenzo Cancer Research Fund at the Duke Cancer Institute (https://www.gifts.duke.edu/dci?designation=6111535).
