A Tribute to Robin Lumenti

Learn more about the woman whose name is on the Wendy's sign board.

Heading into Milford on Route 85, you can't miss the sign board, which prominently displays a tribute to Robin Lumenti.

The 37-year-old Milford mother of two died Monday after a battle with cancer.

She had worked for Wendy's for 20 years before retiring in 2010, the same year she was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.

Milford Patch first met Lumenti in February 2011, when she wrote

"I'm not sure how many tomorrows I have left and I thank god everyday I open my eyes and get to see another today," Lumenti had written.

Funeral services will be held at 7 p.m. Friday at , 42 Congress St. Calling hours are 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, before the service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Robin's memory to "Rockin It for Robin Fund", c/o Milford Federal Savings & Loan Assoc., 246 Main St., Milford, MA 01757.

We at Milford Patch wish to express our condolences to Robin's family and friends. Please share your memories of her in the comment section.

She was a sweet woman too young to be taken. She will be missed

Earlier this evening, I received an email from Michelle Howard, district manager for Wendy's. (She commented above.) I'm publishing her note here: "Danielle, Thank you for sharing our tribute with the community. We didn't do it for free advertisement, but rather to show our support to the family of a valued member of the Wendy's family who will be deeply missed. Maybe, too, we can gain some awareness in the fight against cancer that millions of people battle each day. I lost my Mom last year to cancer, and even with all she was going through, Robin took the time to reach out to me in my time of need. She was a wonderful person and someone who was not just an employee, but also a friend. Again, thanks for sharing her story." I asked Michelle if I could share her words in this article; she agreed, but not without the disclaimer: "Robin deserves all the attention, not us."
