'All who loved her dearly will never forget her undying love' Claudia Robinson, 71, of Long Valley, NJ, passed away peacefully on September 20, 2021, at the Karen Ann Quinlan Home for Hospice in Fredon Twp., NJ, with her family by her side. Claudia was born on December 1, 1949, in Passaic, NJ to the late Joseph and Helen (Augustowski) Puzino. She graduated from Garfield High School in Garfield, NJ prior to meeting her husband, Ronald Robinson, and starting their lifelong adventure together. Family was everything to Claudia. She was, the best damn mom there was, and the strongest person we ever knew. She was not afraid of anyone or anything. She was a fierce and loving "mama/grand-mama bear," but she also was very fair and adept at giving her family a good kick in the butt, whenever it was needed. We are sure she is swinging her foot right now. The list of sacrifices she made, in love for us all, is too extensive to ever list or thank her for and the words alone would never do them justice. Her extensive vocabulary was more than highly proficient at knowing more curse words than most people learned in a lifetime. She liked four letter words as much as she loved her spaghetti, and trust us, it is f-ing good. I guess some of that extensive vocabulary rubbed off on us. Her passion was cooking and she was quite the connoisseur. Feeding her family and friends brought her great joy. If you knew her, you would always come to her home hungry, knowing you would always leave with full stomach and heart. She will be sorely missed and survived by her beloved husband of 52 years, Ronald Robinson; two devoted children, Adam Robinson, daughter-in-law Marie Robinson, and Bree Brace, son-in-law Ed Brace; four cherished grandchildren, Macie "Ollie" Poole, Anthony Poole, Brody Robinson, and Dean Robinson; and by many other loving family members and friends. All who loved her dearly will never forget her tenacity, strength, courage, grace, wit and undying love and caring for them. She will forever be remembered as the most loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Claudia's Life Celebration will include a visitation on Saturday, September 25, 2021, from 12pm – 3pm at the William J. Leber Funeral Home. A Catholic Prayer Service will begin at 3pm at the funeral home. Interment will be held privately by her family. At the conclusion of the service, everyone is invited to join the family for dinner and drinks at the Meadow Wood Manor, 461 NJ-10, Randolph, NJ 07869 to continue Claudia's Life Celebration.
