Robin Lynn Kampfer, age 51, passed away peacefully October 11, 2021 with her husband and children by her side (due to congestive heart failure at Orange Park Medical Center. She was born January 19th 1970, in Dearborn, Michigan. She felt so blessed to have four parents: Robert and Laurel Heyniger, who adopted her at birth, and her biological parents, James Rogers and Beverly Balge. In February 2008 she married the love of her life Robert Kampfer.
Robin loved spending time with her family, friends, and dog Carley, going on cruises and being on the beach, riding motorcycles with her husband, taking long road trips, wearing flip-flops (she despised closed toe shoes), cold weather, a diet coke (from the fountain machine), taking pictures, and watching the Golden Girls (she was so proud of the trophy she won on one of her many cruises). Her grandchildren really were the light of her life and she loved telling everyone that she could how “they got their good looks from their grandma”. She had a heart of gold and was there when you needed her and always thinking of others whether it was a card to let you know she was thinking of you, a text at just the right time, or finding the right meme to tag you in on FaceBook. She also had a smile and laugh that were contagious and will be remembered by all who knew her.
Robin attended Athens High School, Class of 1988 and later attained her nursing degree from North Florida Community College, Class of 1995. For many years she worked as a LPN at the nursing home in Dowling Park where she made many great friends. She went on to practice nursing in corrections for a few years before settling down and starting her dream of resale from home. This gave her more time with her family and she also had fun hunting down all the cool stuff that she could list.
Robin is survived by her beloved husband Robert Kampfer. She was a loving mom to Amber (Dustin) Hough, Alexander Main, Joseph Kampfer, and Christopher Kampfer. Robin was a wonderful grandma to Makayla Kampfer, Tristian Kampfer, Alyssa Main, Annabella Kissinger, Mya Kampfer, and Kelby Hough. She was a dear sister to Scott (Sheryl) Heyniger, Nicole (Jim) Barber, Heather (Francisco) Salazar, Lara (Damani) Harrison, and Jamie Rogers. She is remembered by many wonderful cousins, nieces, and nephews.
As Robin had many loved ones in Florida and Michigan, she will have two celebrations of life to help minimize travel for all who wish to honor her. Please join us to celebrate her life at either one. The one in Florida will be an intimate luncheon with close friends and family to celebrate her life. The Michigan celebration of life will be in December with information to follow.
