Robin Nichole Bivens

Robin BivensRobin Nichole Bivens, 43, of Princess Anne, Maryland, was born in Portsmouth, Virginia on April 28, 1971, to Lorelei Faulkner and the late Robert Faulkner.  Robin passed away on Monday, August 11, 2014, surrounded by family.

She was educated in the public schools of Virginia, New Jersey, California and Pennsylvania and was a consistent honor student.  For the majority of her employed years, Robin worked as a secretary and administrative assistant in the field of education.

Robin was married to her beloved husband of 17 years, Jermaine Bivens.  She cherished their union and considered it one of her greatest blessings.

Robin, one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, spent the majority of time in her last days speaking to people about the Bible’s message and contemplating how to do it even more so.  She cared deeply for her fellow man and wanted all to gain the hope of everlasting salvation in which she so strongly believed.

In addition to her father, Robin was preceded in death by her mother-in-law, Regina Bivens and sister-in-law Julia Cotton.  Along with her husband, Jermaine, and mother, Lorelei Faulkner, Robin is survived by a father-in-law, George Bivens, Sr.; five brothers-in-law:  Michael Whittington (Yvonne) of Princess Anne, MD, Johnie Thomas (Lydia) of  Salisbury, MD, Carlos Bivens (Carrie) of Joppa, MD, George Bivens, Jr. (Beverly) of Lincoln University, PA, and Jason Bivens of Salisbury, MD; numerous nephews and cousins.  Also left to cherish loving memories are a special aunt, Undra Woods, as well as abundant spiritual sisters and brothers and special friends.  She always looked forward to racing certain friends in the new world with her new, perfect body.  One spiritual sister she was particularly fond of used to speak to her excitedly about having a bonfire for their canes, walkers, eyeglasses and other implements that would soon be things of the past.

Proverbs 31:10-31 describes desirable qualities in a wife and this is exactly what Robin possessed.  She was a part of me as Genesis 2:24 describes and I was made better because of our union.  I will miss her dearly and will never be the same without her. (Added by Jermaine Bivens).

A memorial service will be held 3:00 PM Saturday, August, 16, 2014 at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Westover, MD .  As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Westover Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. (Written by Robin Bivens and updated by Jermaine Bivens)

    To Jermaine and the Bivens family I want you all to know that you are in my prayers. words cannot express the sorrow that I feel at this time. Robin and I go way back. Robin, stephaine Masson and myself all came into the truth together at the Bay congregation in Norfolk, Va. we all clung together and encouraged each other to stay close to Jehovah. Robin was especially encouraging. I remember Robin always had something encouraging to say or she always had a spiritual point to share and she talked about the paradise as if she were already there. I will miss her sweet little voice. she often told me how proud she was of me and my daughter but I was more proud of her because she truly put up a hard fight for the truth and she had a determination that was strong. my desire is to see Robin again so I know I must have the same determination that she had. yes I look forward to seeing my friend again and this time NOTHING will separate us ever again.

    Jermaine and all of the Bivens family, I was so saddened to learn of my friend Robin’s passing. Not because she has transitioned from this world, but because we all will truly miss her gentle and loving ways. I will continue to pray for you all.

  • Bill Bivens Jr.:

    My sincere condolances to you, my wonderful spiritual brother Jermaine. I was in your wedding party on that momentous day you married the love of your life. Robin was indeed a very close friend of mine and I will miss her dearly. our frequent phone calls and visits will be missed. Her memory will be forever cherished by me and my family. I remember when the two of you were engaged and she used to use my suitcase when she went to visit you. I know Robin loved Jehovah and it is my belief that she is safe in his memory. A reason for me to continue to strive to do what is right,so Robin and I can be joined together again on a beautiful paradise earth where there is no pain,no mourning and most of all no death. I loved Robin dearly and I continue that love to you Jermaine.

    I was just telling a friend what an inspiration Robin has been to me through my physical illness, as well as through the loss of my mother. Mom loved Robin so much, and always spoke so highly of her. She encouraged me by her positive spirit and inner strength. Her example strengthened my faith, and made me appreciate the good in life. I’ve never known anyone quite like her. The last time we spoke, she told me she was not afraid of death, since she knew the truth about the resurrection and living in an earthly paradise soon to come, but her real sadness would be leaving her husband, whom she loved so much. We all look forward to seeing her again soon when Jehovah reunites families and friends in perfect health and eternal happiness!
